Commercial kitchens are very different to those found in a home. In homes, your kitchen may get used for a couple of hours a day – the rest of the time the kitchen is fairly idle; at least, when it comes to foot traffic. Commercial kitchens are used for hours on end, and often by five or more people, all coming and going – and grinding anything dropped into the floor.
Marble floor tiles have traditionally been associated with the rich and famous, and whilst cost has been an important factor, it shouldn’t stop you considering it as an option for your home. The rich and famous have large homes so the installation of marble floor tiles would be expensive. Our homes are much smaller in comparison, and with marble floor tiles competitively priced, it is a very affordable floor tile for most people. What is important is to ensure you are getting good quality marble tiles. Like everything in life, there are good quality marble tiles and some fairly poor quality tiles. The following list will help you find good quality marble floor tiles for your home.
Water water everywhere – don’t the kids just love to have fun? The question is, can your bathroom floor cope with that water, and more importantly, can your feet ‘stick’ to the floor or will it become an indoor skating rink?

There is a myth that suggests that most floor tiles are unsuitable for bathrooms because they are slippery and therefore dangerous. Some will urge vinyl as being the best suited for bathroom, however, vinyl can have a very short lifespan, especially when children are present. Whilst there is a huge range of floor tiles that are a little slippery when wet, there are just as many tiles that are anti-slip and well suited to bathrooms. They are also well suited to kitchens and outdoor areas where moisture is present, including swimming pool decks.
