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.

Your kitchen backsplash is one of the many areas of your home that can come to life with a little creativity. Whether you choose to use ceramic, porcelain, glass, or other types of tiles, you are only limited by your imagination. Watch this video for a few new tile ideas for the kitchen backsplash.
Ceramic tiles come in a variety of shapes, textures, and colors, offering an extensive palette with which to work.

You know you want tile floors, but what type of tile? There are a lot of factors that determine which tile is best for your home, including which room you will be installing new tile floors. Whether you are installing tile floors in your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, or living room, the following article will tell you which tile best suits each room in your home.
Porcelain tile is a popular choice for the kitchen and bathroom because it is impervious to spills. And if you want the look and feel of natural stone tile but have a tight budget, consider stone-look porcelain. These porcelain tiles offer the charm of a natural stone with the moisture protection and stain resistance of hard-wearing ceramic.
Vinyl tiles are extremely versatile. They come in a wide array of colors and finishes. Some vinyl tiles even mimic hardwood flooring, giving you the relaxed look of wood with the durability and moisture resistance of ceramic. Wood-look vinyl tiles are heavier than most other tiles, so they are best suited for basements and single-story homes.
Outdoor-Ready Natural Stone
If you want to create an outdoor living area that is as comfortable and inviting as the inside of your home, incorporate natural stone tile in your landscape design. Natural stones withstand the elements better than most other tile options.

Even if you scrub your tile floors every day, they won’t look spotless until you clean the grout. This is especially true if you have a light colored grout that shows dirt and stains easily. Fortunately, cleaning grout effectively is possible using only common household cleaning products and a bit of elbow grease. If you want to keep your tile floor looking spotless, here are some tips for cleaning the grout.
Rinse and Brush
The best way to start cleaning the grout is to get on your hands and knees and scrub the grout lines with a stiff-bristled brush and plain water. You can pick up brushes specifically designed for this purpose at your local tile store. Scrub the grout lines in a circular motion and let dry before you apply cleaning solutions.
Use Household Cleaning Products
If the brush and water trick doesn’t remove all of the stains, make a past of baking soda and water, cover the grout lines with the paste, and then spray on a mixture of equal parts vinegar and warm water. Once the mixture stops foaming, scrub the grout lines as you did before and rinse with plain water.
Cleanup Stains Immediately
Now that your grout lines are looking like new, take precautions to keep them looking that way. One of the best ways to maintain your tile grout is to cleanup spills and stains as soon as they happen. The longer they sit, the deeper the stain will settle into the grout, and the harder it will be to get your grout looking like new again.
