I've always loved both terracotta and slate tiles, although we have neither. Our kitchen came with cork tiles which look good with our kitchen, are warm underfoot and feel good. I know they're not the current fashion, but we'll leave them until they need replacing.

I suspect the cost of laying engineered boards and tiles is probably similar when you account for materials and labour. Always good to have choice. My issue with tiles is the discolouring of the grout. The lighter the colour the worse it gets.

@Storewall Australia Nice point , please consider the 2 pack epoxy grout, hard wearing and they keep there colour.
