Unless you need to replace your kitchen tiles completely, it is not advisable to put in a whole new anti slip floor. Luckily, you can use a non slip coating product to make sure that your kitchen floor is one hundred percent slip free. These coatings are designed to be put on different types of flooring. It is off the utmost importance that you get a coating that is the correct one for your tiles, otherwise you may cause damage to your flooring. There is no need to be worried that the non slip coating will destroy the ambience you have created in your Spanish styled kitchen, as it dries completely clear over your existing tiles. You will not even realize that there is a non slip coating until you set foot onto your kitchen floor and do not reenact a scene from Swan Lake on Ice. Your family will be able to enjoy the kitchen once more without worrying about slipping and causing an accident. It is always better to be safe than sorry. You can do this by getting non slip coating for your flooring as well as putting away sharp objects.
If you use a quality polyurethane finish, it can prove to be just as water-resistant as other floor types. These have a beautiful sheen but will require a refinish annually. Polyurethane finishes last a very long time and do not need to be stripped, waxed, or buffed. With regular cleaning and dusting, you should be fine. Just be sure to look out for leaks - and fix the problem immediately if you find any. Something like a burst pipe can cause terrible damage if not discovered, so be on the look out. Equally important is the type of wood that you choose - the kitchen is a high-traffic area and therefore certain species of wood floors work better in the kitchen than others. Cherry, fir, and pine wood are less durable types - ash, maple, or oak stand up better and are more durable, and will serve you well over the course of a lifetime. If you are shopping flooring, let your installer know the room you plan to install it in - they may have some good suggestions about which choice to make.
