Ceramic tile is a flooring material of choice in many parts of the country. Reader Melissa tipped me to this floor tile — Daltile Natural Hues — which is available in 8″ squares — a size that is close to the vintage 9″ resilient floor tiles that were common in midcentury homes. There are lots of colors and neutrals in the Natural Hues line — I count 58. There also are many other sizes and shapes — this is a workhorse line for Daltile, to be sure.
From the product info page:
For variety, color options and versatility in design, no tile can outdo Natural Hues. With this tile, you can create customized murals, borders and patterns. Choose from a smooth finish or two abrasive styles, depending on the look or effect you want. The abrasive is applied under the glaze without impacting the color.
Floors can be slippery, so when choosing floor tile, it’s important to make sure the product you choose is properly specified for the use you have in mind. Work with a professional to make sure you’re ordering correctly. On another Daltile page, the company reminds, “No floor tile is ‘slip proof.'” And, it recommends following maintenance and use instructions.
Thanks for the tip, Melissa.
