Learn about the materials, patterns and sizes available that can make your kitchen flooring both functional and fashionable.Porcelain tiles only need a light sweep, or a quick once-over with a mop to stay immaculate. As they are naturally stain-resistant, they don't need to be sealed. This is one of the main reasons people opt for porcelain tiles instead of carpeting. As porcelain tiles are resistant to household chemicals, they can be properly cleaned and sanitized without getting damaged. They won't soak up the chemicals or be affected in any way, even if harsh chemicals are used.
