What are the best flooring option for houses in Kerala?
CERAMIC FLOOR TILES
Ceramic tiles are a perfect choice as flooring options in Kerala. Being hard and moisture-resistant, they are easy to clean. They feel cool on the feet, and provide much-needed relief during scorching hot summers. The only downside is their hardness again, which could make it difficult for prolonged standing, especially in areas such as the kitchen where most of the day is spent.
Since time immemorial, using marble for flooring has been considered to be luxurious. A material that never goes out of style, yet has way too many varieties, a whole lot of colours, and intricate patterns being discovered every now and then. Indian, and imported marbles continue to reign the market for years. With a good polish, marble shines like no other flooring material which makes it an obvious choice for those wanting to flaunt luxury. Italian marbles remain a favourite in recent times in the homes of Kerala.
Though mostly used in kitchen countertops, granite is an amazing flooring option owing to its durability. It is one of the most long-lasting flooring materials, and is extremely low on maintenance even though the initial investment could be a little high.
Porcelain again is an extremely long-lasting option for flooring, resistant from scratching and cracking. It is a recommended option for commercial spaces and homes with young children.
Using glass titles though not quite popular in Kerala is a good option for flooring for those who would like to try out something different and go unconventional. It isn’t actually very difficult to clean and maintain, a regular glass cleaner and cloth does the job well. And it is a myth that glass tiles are easily breakable. They don’t break easily, but the installation is comparatively difficult and needs to be done only by skilled professionals.
OTHER NATURAL STONE TILES
Apart from marble and granite, there are many natural stone tiles that are lesser explored such as slate, limestone, and travertine.
Natural stone tiles are way better when compared to synthetic ones owing to their sturdiness and sustainability.
