Family and friends all have a habit of congregating in the kitchen. We initially intended the household kitchen to be for preparing and cooking meals. However, over the years, the kitchen has gradually transformed into the heart of the home. The kitchen is the most trafficked room in the house. It is the hub for family meetings, hanging with friends, the office for paying bills, homework central and the most important… the place to enjoy good food.
People invest in their kitchen because it is the most important room for the family and when the time comes to sell. The kitchen sets the tone for the entire house when it comes to the resale value. It is not necessary to renovate the whole kitchen. Just updating the floor and backsplash can notably transform the ambiance in the kitchen.
Tile floors are an excellent choice for flooring in the kitchen. It can endure heavy foot traffic, withstands water spills and does not absorb bacteria and odors. Tile stands up to pets and children, and it can go with any style of decor. You can arrange tile in a multitude of patterns. The sky is the limit!
Another place to utilize tile in the kitchen is the backsplash surrounding the sink and stove. The backsplash protects the wall from damage due to water stains and marks from kitchen gadgets. You can add character by making empty wall space an eye-catching backsplash that is as functional as it is fashionable.
Maintenance is easy, as well. Just wipe up spills right away, so you do not take the chance in staining the grout. Sweep, dust and wipe the surface with a damp mop or cloth to keep clean. Do not use anything that is abrasives like scouring pads. Reseal grout as needed to keep your floors protected.
