Glazed and Unglazed Tiles. Firstly, there are glazed and unglazed tiles; the glazed tiles can be cleaned very easily and do not stain as often as unglazed tiles. All you need to do is run a mop soaked in warm water with a mild detergent solution across them from time to time. The problem with glazed tiles is that they are very smooth and therefore can be quite slippery. This is dangerous, especially if the kitchen area is prone to water spillage or if there are young children in your home. To avoid this, you could choose unglazed tiles over glazed ones. Unglazed tiles will prevent the floor from being slippery and have an aesthetically pleasing textured surface. Then again, unglazed tiles will not be as durable as glazed ones - they will be relatively more prone to damage because they are not protected by that extra layer of glazing.
Braided rugs are a great addition to any home that wants a comfortable feel but not too formal looking. Braided rugs are self explanatory, it’s three strips of fabric braided together and then woven into a pattern, usually circular. For an oval rug the center braid should be one inch longer than the width-length in feet. Braided rugs are extremely sturdy, long wearing, comfortable to walk on and are usually easy to care for. A glance in any department store catalog will give you several options to choose from. Some require professional cleaning, others are spot clean, others require spills be sponged up quickly. Today’s rugs are usually reversible so you get double life out of them. When one side is stained too badly or starts looking rough, just turn it over.
Pickling could be used to lighten up a floor. This process entails applying white paint to the grain of the hardwood. Most white paints could be used for this process. All you need to do is apply the paint in such a way as to let it sink into the grain of the hardwood. This is the only way to get the best results from this lightening process. A little more research will tell you more about this process.

You would find them on counter tops or back splashes or inside showers, but today they have drastically changed and the possibilities for all kinds of designs and layouts are available for just about any floor you may want to cover.
