Floor tiles – especially ceramic ones – are the most common type of flooring in Singapore. The standard HDB comes with ceramic floor tiles. Floor tiles come in a whole variety of shapes, materials and sizes. Materials can be split into two broad categories, natural and man-made.
Natural stone materials include granite, marble, travertine, limestone, onyx, sandstone, slate, quartzite and more. Meanwhile, man-made materials span porcelain, ceramic, glass and metal.
Some pros of using floor tiles include the durability and the large variety of materials and designs available for choosing. However, floor tiles are slippery when wet, and may pose safety hazards to children and the elderly.
However, floor tiles are difficult to install, as hacking of old tiles and use of cement is required in installation. Be sure to engage a professional contractor who will be able to install the tiles without too much noise and manage debris at the same time!
