Wood floors are an old-house staple—but in the harsh environment of the kitchen, wood will splinter, flake, and warp when exposed repeatedly to water. That's why early Americans quickly learned to seal wood floors with whatever was available, from homemade paint to wax and tung oil. Similarly, Victorian homeowners jumped at the chance to install water-resistant materials like linoleum and mosaic tile as soon as they became widely available in the last quarter of the 19th century.
A means to re-creating the appearance of carpet, floorcloths and flooring stencils have been documented in early homes from about 1740 through well into the 19th century. Patterns can be surprisingly detailed and intricate, incorporating design elements such as flowers and leaves, pinwheels, and starbursts.
Vitrified tile is basically a non-porous ceramic tile, these tiles are most commonly used for vitrified flooring as a replacement to marble and granite flooring and are available in a vast variety of designs and colours. Vitrified tiles is made by hydraulic pressing a mixture of clay, silica, quartz, and feldspar. Thus creating a Vitrified tile which are hard with low porosity.
