Ceramic Tiles Hard on Legs and Feet?

Previous Next
 
Are ceramic tiles good for a kitchen floor? Would they be hard on the legs and feet if one is standing a long time on them?

Answer:
Ceramic tiles are certainly appropriate for kitchen floors; however, they are hard on the joints in the leg if you are standing for a period of time. One product that is becoming a very popular and cost effective alternative to ceramic tile is cork. It is much warmer than ceramic tile, it is much easier on the joints, and it is resilient. This means that if a glass or plate was dropped on the floor, it would likely not break and any indentation (unlike hardwood flooring) would typically come out over time.
