Choosing flooring for your kitchen is a big decision and with plenty of options available, each with their own unique characteristic and charm, it can be quite a challenging process. Such a hardworking room needs a tough, hardwearing and long-lasting surface and, of course, it has to look good, too. Popular options include natural stone, which should last a lifetime and will improve with age, but like ceramic tiles, it can be noisy and cold underfoot, unless laid over underfloor heating. Wood, on the other hand, adds warmth and timeless style but needs regular care and maintenance. So, what do you do?
If you really can’t pick one, why not have them all with Materia Mix, Craven Dunnill’s latest porcelain floor tile collection, which is a striking blend of concrete, wood and stone textures, creating an urban backdrop for modern, open-plan schemes. These sleek, glazed porcelain tiles are super-durable, moisture- and stain-resistant, easy to clean, excellent conductors of heat and suitable for installation throughout the house and outdoors, too – making a seamless transition from kitchen to patio possible.
Materia Mix from Craven Dunnill’s Renaissance Collection, costs £41.40sq m, and is available in four natural palettes – Deep, Light, Steel and Sun (shown) – in a 600 x 300mm tile format.
