Does anybody know where I can purchase the kitchen floor tiles featured in the photos of this home I posted here? I have been searching all over the place hoping to figure out the best flooring for kitchen designs that have a very large footprint, but I have not been able to find anything with just the right look until I stumbled across this home. You would think that this neutral dark beige tile would be pretty easy to find just about anywhere, but it is surprisingly hard to locate one with the right neutral undertones and large enough rectangle. For reference, I have already looked for this tiles design at big box stores like Lowes and Home Depot and a couple of local speciality shops.
For people who have kitchen floor tiles in their home, how do you feel about maintenance and durability compared to wood flooring? On the one hand I feel like kitchen tile ideas would actually be easier to clean than wood because of how careful you have to be with cleaning products but, on the other hand, I think that they would show dirt and grime much easier than wood. The other concern that I have is with slipping -- I feel like they are much more slick than wood and would concern me while I was carrying a pot of boiling water or large platter of food. All this to say, I actually love how the floor tiles design looks in these photos, that's why I am curious as to whether or not I should consider switching to this at our house.
Would you believe that this flooring is actually kitchen floor tiles and not wood. I wouldn't have been able to tell either except that my friend told me (and I felt it when I walked in). I have been hearing that tile can actually be better for kitchens than wood because of its durability and how easy it is to maintain, but I have always been kind of eh about the design. I think that this is definitely the best tile for kitchen floor because it looks just like the wide wood planks that are so trendy right now. In fact, after seeing these photos I am strongly considering tearing out our old floors that have been looking a little worse for wear and replacing them with these.
Okay so the movement we moved into this house I knew that the kitchen floor tiles had to go ASAP. The rest of the kitchen is really lovely, but the flooring just brings the whole look down. My question for everybody on here is should I replace it with wood or should I find some different type of kitchen floor tile ideas to replace them with. I know that the floor has already been treated with whatever is required for tile (I am not home remodeling expert), so it would certainly make sense to just replace it. However, I really want to do whatever would look best with the unique architectural style of our house. From what I have looked at online, the space is very inline with the trending kitchen cabinet colors 2020 and the light fixtures and countertops look fantastic as well, so the main thing to replace would be the floors.
I am getting more and more clients requesting kitchen floor tiles in their home renovation projects than I have in the past five years or so combined. In my professional opinion, a ceramic tile kitchen floor is a definite win as far as durability in a high traffic area, and it is pretty easy to maintain as well (certainly better than wood in that respect). In addition, there are so many shapes, patterns, and color schemes available nowadays that you can certainly find something to coordinate with pretty much any size, style, or age of home. The only downside that I can see is that it is one of the most costly kitchen flooring options to install because it takes a skilled tradesman to lay the tile -- wood is much easier and more forgiving in terms of skill level.
I am very curious what people on here think about the kitchen floor tiles that they used in the house I just posted here. In my personal opinion, the entire room including primarily the kitchen tiles design seems rather disjointed and like the homeowner or interior decorator couldn't quite settle on a single style that they wanted to use. The ceiling is very classic farmhouse, the mosaic backsplash is more modern and whimsical, the glazed cabinets are very traditional, and then the flooring just looks like a bathroom to me haha. I actually think that the biggest culprit to making the room feel incomplete is the kitchen flooring ideas that they used.
