#1: Check the Tile Hardness
When evaluating different flooring tile choices, one of the most important factors to consider is the Hardness. Hardness of tiles is measured on the Moh’s scale. It measures the ability of the tile to withstand wear and tear, foot traffic, spills and scratches.
|Tile Hardness Rating||Features|
|Class I||No foot traffic. Suitable only for walls.|
|Class II||Ideal for walls and rooms with light traffic. Best suited for soft-soled applications like bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.|
|Class III||Light to moderate foot traffic. Suitable for walls, countertops, spaces with normal foot traffic and minimal scratching. Works well for all rooms in the home except for corridors, entryways, kitchens, and other rooms with high foot traffic.|
|Class IV||Works well for areas with moderate to heavy traffic. Suitable for all areas of the home. Best choice for both function and beauty.|
|Class V||Can withstand heavy to extra heavy traffic, and high amounts of dirt. Works well for all areas of the home – interior and exteriors, as well as commercial spaces.|
#2: Pay Attention to Tile Porosity
The next factor to consider is tile porosity – it determines the amount of water that a tile absorbs. Look for tiles with low porosity for moisture-prone areas like a kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, service area, etc.
|Impervious||Water absorption rate is less than 0.5%. Ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, etc.|
|Vitreous||Water absorption factor is from 0.5% to 3%.|
|Semi-vitreous||Water absorption factor is from 3% to 7%.|
|Non-vitreous||Water absorption factor is over 7%. Not suitable for floor use.|

#4: Consider the Slip Resistance
Generally, all tiles are slippery to some extent, especially when there is water on the floors. So, if you have young children and old people at home, then you need to look for slip-resistant tiles. Look for tiles with a high CoF (Co-efficient of Friction).
Here are a few choices to consider for maximum slip-resistance:
- Ceramic or porcelain tiles with special textures and slip-resistant coatings
- Slate is a natural stone that is naturally slip resistant
- Small sized tiles have more grout lines, which improve slip resistance
- Pebble stone tiles add to the aesthetics of your interiors
#5: Consider Porcelain/Ceramic Hardwood Tiles instead of Real Wood

Stone floors are the ultimate luxury. However, they cost a pretty penny. With stone-finish porcelain tiles, you can make your floors look as beautiful as natural stone floors.
#7: Opt for Light Coloured Floor Tiles to Make the Room Appear Larger
If you have a room that doesn’t receive a lot of natural light or is extra small, then opt for light coloured floor tiles to make it appear larger. Beige, white, cream, sand are some good choices.
