What is the best tile to put in my kitchen?
It all depends on how you use your space. But, in general, ceramic, porcelain or natural stone tiles are the most popular to dress the kitchen floor. It is even the best option, since these types of coatings are significantly resistant to wear over time.
Which floor for a kitchen open to the living room?
We have two options for you. On the one hand, you can keep the same floor both in the kitchen and in the living room, on the other hand, you instead go to two different tiles to create a demarcation between these spaces. If you like a clean and homogeneous style, opt for the same type of flooring. You will have a feeling of saving space. In addition, it will make it easier for you to choose furniture, their colors and distribution. Of course, you have to consider a harmonious style so as not to disturb the aesthetics of your home.
Wood effect tiles
So, precisely, to reinforce the feeling of space and improve the continuity of the flooring, you can count on the imitation parquet tiles whose appearance looks like wood. Not only does it give a more convivial and rustic cachet, but in addition, you will really feel that your space is bigger.
Cement effect tiles
Ideal flooring, cement effect tiles borrow various patterns and prints to create a warm style to your space. It is better to adapt this tile both in the living room and in the kitchen area, to have this impression of space and continuity. But, of course, you are free to go to the concept that suits you best. If, on the contrary, you prefer to differentiate the areas and visually delimit the spaces (without partitions), you will not have the feeling of continuity, but you will break the codes a little by adding a touch of color and modernity. Thus, you will put more emphasis on the elements.
