The non visible area of the modular furniture can be covered by plain tiles and the visible area called “dado” can be decorated by good designer tiles, composite material or simply extend the same granite or counter-top.
Counter-tops are available in various materials and finishes like, marble, granite, composite, wood and steel. Most common and recommended is granite, due to its hardness. However, composite products are very much the recent trend. Even laminated counter-tops can be used, provided there is careful use of water.
Marble, granite, ceramic tiles, mosaic tiles, vitrified tiles, etc can be used for the flooring. We recommend using a harder surface, as the kitchen is a room where bulky utensils and equipment are shifted (like cylinders, refrigerators and so on), causing scratches and indents. Hence, the harder the surface the better and longer is its life. Mosaic has an exhaustive range in tiles for the walls and floor of the kitchen.
Granite is a widely preferred material for the flooring as it is easy to clean and matches practically anything. Although marble absorbs water quickly which makes it prone to staining, it scores high in the looks department. .
For a low traffic kitchen, wooden flooring or wooden floor laminates can be considered. This is the latest trend in high profile or affluent kitchens.
