Due to its versatility, many homeowners are now opting to have installed tile throughout their home in places such as bathrooms and family rooms. But the kitchen remains a favorite room to have tile flooring installed due to its timeless appeal and durability.

At Floor Coverings International West Metro Atlanta, we think kitchens are the perfect place for tile flooring, and we’re excited to tell you more about the reason why. Read on as we discuss the many benefits tile flooring has to offer your kitchen.


There are many different options to choose from when it comes to tile flooring for your kitchen. A variety of colors and patterns are available to match your style and complement your home, and tile shape and size is just the start! Popular tile materials include ceramic and porcelain, as well as natural stones like slate and travertine.

Stain and Water Resistant

Because we’re talking about kitchens, we all know that spills are bound to happen, no matter how safe you try to be. Tile flooring in the kitchen can cut down on unwanted stains thanks to their smooth and easy-to-wipe surface. The presence of water is also a common threat to flooring materials like hardwood, which may warp and expand with prolonged exposure to water. Thankfully, most tiles are water-resistant and can be specially treated to further reduce the risk of water absorption.

Easy Maintenance

Because your kitchen sees a lot of foot traffic, tile is a quality option that can hold up even under the toughest wear and tear. If you have a busy lifestyle or have a home with children and pets, you might not always have the extra time for excessive cleaning. With tile, regular sweeping or dust mopping is all you need to keep the surfaces clean. A quick pass of a damp mop each week will also help remove any dirt or debris from your floors.

Added Value

Depending on the material you choose, tile flooring in your kitchen can even increase the value of your home. Thanks to its durability, homebuyers are often willing to pay more for home’s that won’t require new flooring. This is especially true for natural stone tiles such as granite and marble. Although they might cost more than other materials initially, their strength and luxurious finish will often outweigh the initial cost of installation if and when you resell your home.
