There are times where people ask the wrong questions even though they seem right at the time. Non-slip residential floor tiles are a good example. A question frequently asked is “what is the best non-slip tile to use in my (kitchen/bathroom)”. The reality is there is no simple answer.
Why? Most tiles now have non-slip options. Ceramic tiles used to be very glossy and slippery when wet. These days, you can buy ceramic floor tiles that are, if not totally non-slip, then slip-resistant.
The best question to ask a tile expert is much simpler – “show me your range of non-slip residential floor tiles.” You could also refine your request to include where you want to use tile – for example, asking to see their range of non-slip bathroom tiles.
Natural stone is one of the best floor tiles for wet areas, however, if they have been sealed and polished to a glossy finish, then they too may be a little slippery. Porcelain is another floor tile option that has a non-slip range. It should be remembered, however, that no flooring option is 100% non-slip since the floor is only one component. Tiles can be non-slip to bare feet, but extremely slippery if wearing high heels.
