Saltillo Tile Floors are easy to clean.
Saltillo tile kitchen floors hides daily dirty.
I have to confess something and please don’t judge me…I don’t mop or vacuum my Mexican tile floors everyday. That felt good to say aloud. Life happens and as a busy work from home small business owner, author, blogger, wife, mom, plant baby and doggy momma…I don’t always have time to clean my floors. So there are times when I skip cleaning the floors for a three or four (…ish) days (who is counting). Saltillo tile is good for kitchen floors because they are so good at hiding daily dirty. It’s not that they hide all the dirt perfectly, its more like its less noticeable than other flooring options out there. If I am being completely transparent most days I know my floors need vacuuming because I feel the dirt against my feet, not because I see it.
Saltillo Tile kitchen floor are so durable.
Another reason why Saltillo tile is good for kitchen floor is that they are durable. I can’t tell you how many times I have dropped a can of beans or a jar full of pasta sauce ( okay, the pasta sauce might have been someone else who lives with me, lol) but the point is… that the tile has survived. We have also had two different water flooding situations and these floors did not get damaged. I love their resilience and durability, even when we had to do work on the house. I also share the house with two kids, one husband, two dogs and a bunch of friends that love hanging out as much as we do. These kitchen floors are in constant use and they are so durable, they hide all the wear and tear so well. These rustic, Mexican tile floors are amazingly durable.
Decorating a Kitchen with Saltillo tile floors is fun.
Finally, and probably one of my favorite reasons why Saltillo tile is good for kitchen floors is because of all the decor options it opens up. If you are thinking that only Mexican, Tex Mex, or Rustic style decor goes with Saltillo tile floors, then think again. These rustic floors are amazing to decorate with and they bring such a unique flair to a kitchen.

Love your kitchen. I just bought a house with Saltillo floors through the entire house and I am excited to keep them. I am designing my kitchen remodel now and you’ve given me some great ideas! Thanks
