There are many different types of tiles that can be used to tile your floor. However, marble floor tiles come with an abundance of advantages. Here are a few reasons to choose marble floor tiling for your home.
Not only is marble available in a significant amount of different colors, it also able to take on an incredibly shiny polish. Marble tiles may feature an array of different colors on the surface of one individual tile, making it ideal for intricate and artistic designs. These colors are emphasized when the tiles are polished. Polish also creates a very shiny and smooth look. Marble tiles react with light in an aesthetically pleasing way due to the slightly translucent nature of marble; light can sometimes cause a glowing effect on lighter colored tiles as well as cause interesting reactions with darker tiles.
If you are looking for a way to improve the appeal of your home while staying environmentally conscious, look no further than marble floor tiling. Unlike many other types of tile, marble is a natural stone. It does not require a resource-intensive manufacturing process and contains no artificial chemicals or coloring agents that might harm the environment when disposed of.
While marble is not the hardest material, marble tiles tend to be very durable. Sealing your marble floors will help to maintain your tiles as well. Marble is also resistant to heat and can be restored. Marble tiles are not prone to breaking or cracking, even when dropped. Many other types of tiles are susceptible to breaking, wearing, or disintegrating. It should be noted that marble is prone to scratches, so it is wise to keep pets with sharp nails away from marble tiling.

White marble tiling can offer a gorgeous aesthetic design, but it is important that it is maintained properly. For this reason, it is more appropriate in certain areas than it is in others. Here are a few tips for using white marble tiling in your home design.
You can help to protect your marble tile by having it sealed; this will help to preserve your tile in the event that you fail to immediately clean up a spill involving an acidic substance. If you are using white marble tile in an area where it is prone to staining, such as a kitchen countertop, it is a good idea to go with polished marble. Whereas honed marble tends to be absorbent, polished marble is more equipped to resist staining.

Tiling is a great way to provide your kitchen with beautiful aesthetics. Tiles can be made from a variety of different materials, including wood, glass, and metal. Here is a look at the latest kitchen tile trends.
Porcelain Emulating Wood
Hardwood flooring is an aesthetic standby, and it looks beautiful in a kitchen setting. However, wood can be difficult to maintain, especially in areas that experience substantial amounts of moisture. Fortunately you can achieve the look of wooden floors without having to spend the time and effort on maintenance by using porcelain tiles. Porcelain tiles can be designed to emulate the look of hardwood floors, and they are also resistant to moisture. Thus, porcelain tiles are perfectly suitable for the kitchen area. However, if you are willing to put in the maintenance you can have hardwood kitchen floors.
Glass tiles can be used in various different settings, such as showers and bathroom floors. However, glass truly shines in the kitchen. Glass tiles can provide a unique appeal to your kitchen backsplash, countertops, or floors. They can convey a variety of colors and they also come in many types of finish. This makes them highly adaptable and ready for any kitchen theme. You can use just a few tiles to bring new life to an existing design or you can line the wall and convey a sense of luxury. Either way, glass tiles are a low risk, high reward option.
Metal tiles are perfect when it comes to the kitchen backsplash. They work especially well in kitchens with stainless steel appliances. Create your own designs using different metals with different finishes. With options like bronze, copper, and stainless steel, you can create a very cozy and quaint warmth in your kitchen using metal tiles.
