Specifying Floor Tiles for Commercial/Retail vs. Residential Projects
When specifying floor tiles for a commercial or retail project, there are specific criteria to meet in order to ensure safety in these public spaces or work areas. Each type of project will have different requirements so it is important to confirm these details with the relevant Australian Standards for your particular application. There is however, much more freedom allowed when specifying floor tiles for residential projects with limited requirements outlined in terms of slip resistance. We do however recommend that caution is exercised when specifying floor tiles for the home in particular for users with mobility constraints, in wet areas of the home and in outdoor spaces.

Floor Tiles and Slip Resistance: What you need to Consider
When it comes to selecting the perfect floor tiles, it is important to consider what activities will be performed in the space. A home’s entryway for example will often see droplets of water or dirt coming in from the outdoor areas so will need to be of a material that can be easily maintained. When selecting tiles for your home, there is more freedom available to you in your selections in comparison to commercial or retail projects where there are stricter guidelines in place to ensure safety in public spaces or work areas. Floor tiles in the home can feature any sort of finish you prefer, from glossy to matte or textured: It is of course important to keep in mind that despite this freedom of restrictions, care should still be taken when specifying floor tiles for wet areas (such as the home bathroom or laundry room) to ensure the safety of the user.
Which Floor Tiles are best?
This will strongly depend on your intended application as different tile materials will be better suited to different areas. From porcelain tiles to natural stone tiles, terrazzo tiles or concrete tiles, there are many elegant choices to choose from, each providing its own range of unique benefits. Our team at Perini Tiles will assist you in specifying the perfect floor tile solution for your project’s specific requirements.
What Types of Floor Tiles can I use outdoors?
Outdoor tiles will often feature a roughly textured surface finish that will provide an element of slip resistance in your home’s outdoor spaces. You will find many stylish outdoor tile options made of durable porcelain or concrete and more. Should you be tiling a covered outdoor area however, there is a little more freedom in your floor tile selections as a variety of materials can be used in these types of installations such as terracotta tiles or concrete tiles for example.
Can I use Floor Tiles in the Living Room or Bedroom?
Yes you can! Living room tiles or bedroom tiles will add a strong design feature in your home while also providing a range of hygienic benefits in these spaces: a quality that is especially attractive for allergy sufferers. A common concern when specifying floor tiles in these types of spaces is their ability to stay warm. In this case, you may want to consider including area rugs that can easily be cleaned or underfloor heating solutions that will create a warm environment in your home.
Should all Flooring in the House be the same?
With the introduction of more versatile floor tile solutions, it is possible to include the same floor tile in every area of your home, from wet areas to bedrooms and hallways! Timber tiles are particularly popular for this sort of design style as are marble tiles or porcelain marble-look tiles, with each option providing a durable and timeless design solution.
