“I’ve learned that home isn’t a place, it’s a feeling” – Cecelia Ahern
Our homes are a true reflection of who we are and what we love, that’s why so much attention and care is given to conceptualizing, planning and executing a home.
Of all the components that make up a house, we spend most of the time on the floor – it’s the foundation on which everything else takes place. Vitrified tiles have many advantages when compared to cement tiles and other traditional materials like marble. Here are some pro-tips on how the best floor tiles can be used to accentuate your living space.
Hey, good looking!
When it comes to your flooring, looks do matter. The colour, texture, style and pattern of the floor tiles can set the tone for the rest of the home. For common areas such as the living room and patio, where guests are entertained, you can choose warm colours such as greys, browns or blacks. Keep them interesting by playing with textures, or breaking the pattern with strips of a different colour. Some rooms need to be made to look bigger and more spacious, and this is where light coloured tiles can really help. Creams and whites can make any space look expansive and neat. Utility areas, including the kitchen, can use medium density colours like light greys and browns. Vitrified tiles also come in a vast range of patterns and textures, which add another dimension to the appearance, and they’re easy to clean and maintain too.
Maintenance is a snap!
Vitrified tiles come with a host of features that make them hygienic and easy to maintain. They are mildew-resistant, stain-resistant, unaffected by exposure to sunlight, and don’t even require polishing after laying. There is also no possibility of water damage or mold formation. In addition, their strength and durability ensure that they have a long lifetime and they remain as stunning as they are on the first day!
Any place, any weather!
The durability of vitrified tiles allows them to be used in all areas of the house. Indoors, outdoors, and even wet areas like the kitchen and bathrooms. Their anti-skid feature also makes them a safe bet for kids bedrooms and play areas. Since they are water-resistant and don’t fade upon exposure to direct sunlight, they can be used for areas like balconies and terraces as well.
Keep it natural!
Vitero’s range of wood and stone floor tiles allow you to bring a piece of nature right into your homes with their natural finish and numerous pattern choices. They also last quite long, and cost half as much as the natural alternatives. Also, since they are much easier to clean, they do not require the use of expensive and toxic chemicals and cleaning products. After years of use, any scratches or marks can be easily dealt with by a simple sand and seal procedure, which is far more cost-effective than refurbishing the whole floor.
In conclusion, vitrified tiles are extremely durable, easy to maintain, and are beautiful to look at! They can be used in any part of the house and require a bare minimum of cleaning and maintenance. Availability in a range of sizes and dimensions also means that you can adapt them to a room of any size. So whether you’re building a new home or renovating your existing space, vitrified tiles are the way to go.
