What are the important considerations for living room floor tiles?

To make sure that your living room floor tiles are the perfect fit, you should consider:

  • The style of your space- whether you have a traditional, rustic, or contemporary home, you can choose floor tiles to suit. From timber effect floor tiles, to stone effect, and from simple layouts to more complex basket weaves and herringbone patterns, there are a number of different ways to use tiles to create a flooring effect that truly emphasizes the design and style of your living room.
  • The role of the flooring- if you want your living room floor tiles to look just like hardwood floors, or natural stone floors, you should consider tiles can tiling layouts that will mirror this, including over-sized timber effect tiles. Alternatively, if you want to make a statement with your floor tiling, you should consider tiling layouts, and designs that will really draw attention and allow your floor tiles to stand out.
  • Practicalities- in the living room, you can probably expect a lot of foot traffic. And this has two real impacts on your floor tiling choices. Firstly, you will need to make sure you choose hard-wearing and durable tiles that are not likely to become cracked or chipped with heavy use. So you should consider porcelain tiles, rather than ceramic. Secondly, you will need to consider the cleaning practicalities.
