Family friendly Tiles

20 February 2024

When building or renovating your family home, it is important to have a balance between it being aesthetically pleasing whilst also being practical. When choosing a flooring option for your home, tiles are a great way to create longevity with a quality product. Here are some of our tricks of the trade to take into consideration.

Low Maintenance:

No one likes cleaning up stains on a carpet. We all lead such busy lives so the less fuss when it comes to cleaning the better. Tiles are inherently low maintenance when it comes to a main flooring option, stain resistant, easy to clean, vacuum and mop.

Rectified Tiles:

A rectified tile is simply a tile that has been produced to have precise and uniform edges, allowing for minimal grout to be used to make the floor appear seamless.

Rectified tiles are a great option for family friendly homes as their clean edges require thinner grout lines, meaning less cleaning and a seamless look that can be carried through your entire house.

Pattern and Texture:

If you have pets and children a great trick when choosing a main floor tile is to find one with a visual pattern or texture to hide the daily dirt and marks in between cleans. A tile with a natural stone look such as a marble or travertine look tile can elevate your home whilst being practical.


Tiles are a perfect main floor option for a family because they can withstand the wear and tear that comes along with daily family life. Worth considering: Porcelain tiles are made from a more refined clay and are fired at higher temperatures making it a denser and more durable option than ceramic tile. So when your dog’s excited claws are scrambling to get out the door for walkies, you can rest easy knowing your floors won’t be damaged.


We all understand the costs involved when building and renovating. Tiles can be a great way to get the look of natural materials for a fraction of the cost. The technology used to manufacture tiles now has come so far meaning that natural stone and timber look tiles feel and look more realistic than ever.
