Laminate is another popular direction to take if you’re going for a hardwood look without the cost. Amber Shay, VP of Design for Standard Pacific Homes’ (Denver) explains why it’s a common choice, "Laminate is a thin piece of wood on a core that’s made of something else. It creates structural stability, so you have less movement in the floor and it’s less expensive than solid hardwood." They won’t be hard to find, flooring stores everywhere are equipped with ceramic and porcelain tile selections for just about any style home.
Types of Ceramic Tile. As I said, there are numerous types and designs of ceramic tile: Porcelain Tile: Water resistant and can include different coatings. Some homeowners install porcelain tile that has been covered with a slip resistant finish. Terra Cotta Tile: Has a very natural and earth-toned look, but it should be sealed to resist staining and extend wear. Glazed Tile: Can be single or double fired. Single firing creates a sturdier tile. Gloss finishes are attractive, but may scratch. Mosaic Tile: Tends to resist staining and are moisture resistant.
Finally, while they are not widely known, glass or metal tile give homeowners an exclusive look and feel many of their neighbors will never see. They’re primarily used for decorative purposes (like walls) and as you probably assumed, come with a higher price tag than ceramic.
Saltillo Tiles: These flooring tiles are used to create a Mediterranean-style kitchen. To accomplish this look, you’re encouraged to incorporate lively colors, rustic hardware and (of course) Saltillo tile flooring. This particular tile brings a warm, inviting look to the kitchen. Terra-Cotta Tile: Select this tile if you’re going for an Old World Charm-style kitchen. It’s a beautiful and classic material that’ll add warmth and geometric interest to the room. Natural Stone: This material is an expensive and high-end flooring option, but it’s absolutely stunning. Natural stone (including marble or travertine) is timeless, durable and easy to clean. Experts suggest using larger pieces which give you a seamless, impressive look and less grout to clean.
