It can be challenging to select a tile floor for your home because there are so many options. To simplify things, begin by thinking about location. You’ll want durable tiles in your kitchen, bathroom and entryways. Shower tiling should be textured for safety reasons, but for entryway tiles, smooth is easier to clean. For color, darker tiles add warmth to a room, lighter hues make a room look larger, and multi-shade tile hides dirt well. The size of the tiles also effects our perceptions of space, e.g., larger tiles make smaller areas look bigger. Also think about shape, layout, surface pattern, and spacing when selecting tile. Going through the choices step by step makes the process easier.
