    Other considerations that you need to make when buying tiles include:

    1. Traction – make sure the tiles you choose have high traction especially if you plan to install it in a high traffic area in your house. Tiles with high traction are less slick and slippery even when wet; thus, reducing the risks of causing tripping and falling accidents.

    2. Heat retention – Tiles do not effectively retain heat. This is why they tend to feel cold during the colder seasons. If you are considering installing it in your living room or bedroom, make sure you have everyone in the house wear their socks to protect them from the cold tile flooring.
