Can you use backsplash tiles as floor tiles?
When it comes to tiles, you don’t have to restrict your creativity. Take it a step further and give your flooring a dash of colour too. Before you could use your backsplash designs for the kitchen flooring, here are a few points to keep in mind.
- Wall tiles are thinner than floor tiles and can come in high gloss finish, making it slippery
- Not all backsplash tiles can be used as floor tiles. However, floor tiles can be used as backsplash tiles
- Lacquered glass cannot be used as a flooring option as can chip and break easily
- When you purchase tiles, make sure to check their grading. Tiles graded in group 1 can be used on walls but not as flooring
- Tiles graded in group 3 and above can be used in kitchens and heavy traffic areas
