If you've decided that tile is the right flooring style for your kitchen, then be sure to work with you stone tile distributor to find a countertop style that evokes the same feeling and design aesthetic as the flooring. Here is a quick guide to coordinating your floor tile with your countertops:

Keep Your Color Scheme Simple

Granite Countertop in San Jose If you're finding it especially difficult to create the perfect tile and countertop combination in your kitchen, then begin by establishing a simple yet personalized color story. Select two basic colors that you either enjoy or that are already featured throughout the home and then opt for a third accent color to include later on. Paint swatches are a great resource when it comes to creating your own signature color scheme.

Draw Inspiration from Details in the Countertop
In the event that you have already set your sights on a beautiful countertop material, such as a unique marble slab, use that material as the inspiration for your tile selection. Many natural stone countertops will feature one-of-a-kind color patterns or slight hints of a beautiful, earthy hue such as a rusty red streak. Choose a floor tile that either incorporates that color or embraces it fully to create a floor to ceiling look that is interesting and attractive.

Rely on Additional Fixtures for a Color Pop
Another great strategy for coordinating floor tile with countertops is to select neutral varieties of both materials, in terms of color and detailing, and to pair them with brighter and bolder accessories. Vibrant cabinetry or attention-grabbing artwork can highlight the brilliant simplicity of countertops and floor tiles that are earth-tone in color or that have a subtle overall appearance.

Understanding the Differences Between Ceramic Tile and Porcelain Tile

Have you recently made the decision to incorporate tile into your kitchen, bathroom, or perhaps even feature it throughout the entire home? Before you start to consider color options or even specific design patterns, be sure to consult with a flooring expert to find out which type of tile is the right fit for each unique space in the home. Let's explore some of the differences between two of the most popular tile varieties, ceramic and porcelain:

Tile for Rooms Prone to Moisture Build Up
Tile is a great flooring choice for so-called "wet rooms", such as the laundry room, the bathroom, and the kitchen. There are some varieties of tile, however, that are better at repelling moisture in these rooms, with ceramic being one of them. Ceramic tile is likely to last longer than porcelain as a flooring option in these rooms and is therefore the recommended choice of the two by flooring experts.

Tiles That Can Sustain Heavy Traffic Flows Ceramic Tile in San Jose
For spaces such as entryways, living rooms, or other areas that see a lot of traffic each day, porcelain floor tiles are likely to be the preferred option for homeowners and flooring retailers alike. This is because porcelain is a stronger material than ceramic and is therefore more durable and more likely to sustain damage brought on by frequent traffic and the wear and tear that accompanies it.

The Process of Installing Porcelain vs. Ceramic
As you have read, porcelain and ceramic differ greatly in their strength and durability as well as their appropriateness for certain rooms in the home. They also vary when it comes to the process of installation, as certain inherent characteristics make porcelain tile a trickier style to install without professional help. With the aid of a professional, however, you can achieve a beautiful look with porcelain on your floors, backsplash, or even throughout your countertop areas.
