What is the best tile for my kitchen?

Figuring out which type will be the most beneficial for your kitchen renovation begins with deciding where it is going to go. The best backsplash tiles tend to be ceramic, glass, and stone while the best floor tiles tend to be ceramic, porcelain, and travertine.

What do I need to know about tile flooring?

Tile is a classic flooring option that delivers a durable, low-maintenance floor to your home at a very reasonable cost.

One thing to keep in mind about tile, however, is that tile is destructively hard and gets cold quickly when the temperature drops.
