The Room is perhaps the most frequently used room in any house, often being an entrance to the garden, sleeping areas for pets and storage for heavy domestic appliances. For this reason, it is important to choose a floor tile that is hard wearing (look for tiles that have a minimum PEI rating of IV).

Through-body porcelain tiles are often a good choice for Room floors as the tile is the same colour all the way through, therefore accidental scratches/chips aren't noticeable.

Natural stone tiles (travertine, slate, marble, etc) are becoming a popular choice as they can offer fantastic and unique effects. Due to the popularity of natural stone, tile manufacturers are starting to produce ceramic/porcelain tiles with designs that replicate natural stone.
