If you are like many homeowners, you probably spend a fair amount of time in your kitchen. For a lot of people, the kitchen can serve as the heart of the home, a central space where family can gather and commune. If you happen to enjoy cooking, you also probably gravitate toward this space of your home at a high frequency. WIth that said, you want your kitchen to be a clean, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing space. If your kitchen has become dated, or the wear and tear of the years is starting to reveal itself, you may be pondering a remodel. While this can be something of a stressful and expensive occasion, it can also be exciting, as you get to map out which new appliances, fixtures, and surface materials will be used to create the kitchen of your dreams. During the planning phase, you will also want to zero in on the right kitchen tile for you, whether it is used for the flooring or a backsplash. When designed properly, tilework can be a focal point of the room, so you will want to be thoughtful about the brand, type, and color you choose. Fortunately, at Glendale Tile Company, that’s where we can help.

What are Some Qualities to Look for in Kitchen Tile?

The thing to keep in mind about your kitchen is that it is an area that is going to see a lot of traffic. With that said, you should seek out a type of tile that is durable and easy to clean. Porcelain tile, for instance, is fairly resistant to scratching, does not absorb water, and can be wiped clean with minimal effort. As a general rule of thumb for kitchen tile, you should go with something that has a smooth, glazed finish, as it will be easier to maintain (stone tiles can be porous and will hold dirt in a more stubborn manner).
