Choosing Tiles For Your Living Room
Our living rooms are usually the heart of our entire home. It’s where you go to socialise with family and friends and where you relax in the evenings. Because it’s such a central place, you want to be sure to choose your tiles for your living room well. Here are some tips to consider in order to help you choose tiles for your living room.
Maintenance and Durability
This is an important factor when choosing floor tiles for your living room. Your living room floor gets a high volume of foot traffic and is also exposed to falling objects and spills that all can cause damage.
Considering all that, porcelain tiles are one of the most durable materials you could choose. It’s harder than traditional ceramic tiles and most natural stone tiles. Whether polished or glazed, the hard porcelain body ensures they will maintain their original look for years to come.
Because most porcelain tiles are either glazed or pre-sealed, the surface porosity is kept to a minimum keeping them protected against stains. This makes porcelain tiles virtually maintenance free.
Here at TFO, we have a huge range of porcelain floor tiles. Some of our most popular porcelain tiles are timber look porcelain tiles, Italian natural stone look porcelain tiles and lappato finish porcelain tiles.
No doubt your ultimate goal when choosing tiles for your living room is to achieve a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. After all, it’s where you, your family and friends spend the most time.
To make an atmosphere of comfort, you must choose the right colours. It’s well documented that the colours of an environment can affect the human subconscious. Considering that, most opt for colours that are mild and gentle, avoiding extreme colours. The most popular colour choices are beige, grey, brown and amber hues.
Also when choosing floor tiles, choose tiles which characteristics are consistent with the characteristics of your furnishings. This creates a unified and seamless effect.
Natural Stone Tiles
Natural stone tiles have a beauty and warmth like no other manmade product. Each piece is a unique piece of artwork. Natural stone tiles like travertine, marble and limestone can make your living room into a stunning luxurious space.
Compared to porcelain tiles, natural stone tiles are more fragile. However sealing them with an impregnating sealant keeps wearing and exposure to the elements to a minimum.
At TFO, we have a beautiful range of travertine from Turkey, marble from Italy and Spain – all at the lowest prices in Sydney. Our staff are eager to assist you and help advise you on the best type of sealers to use to maintain the original look of your natural stone tiles.
