The Houzz study found that the most commonly upgraded products and materials included worktops (93%), flooring (88%) and wall finishes (85%). There are numerous benefits of tiling your kitchen with Bac-Tech, our innovative antibacterial tiles. Ideal for walls, floors and even to create hardwearing hygienic work surfaces, these porcelain tiles contain Zinc Oxide nanoparticles throughout – a compound that obliterates harmful bacteria. A kitchen featuring Porcel-Thin’s antibacterial tiles is a place that’s a safe haven for cooking, eating and socialising.

Cook and eat fresh with antibacterial tiles

After a kitchen revamp, 43% of those who took part in the Houzz survey claimed they cook more at home, over 90% said they now eat at least five home-cooked meals each week, more than a third stated they had cut down on takeaways and up to 23% reported more fruit and veg intake. With this in mind, the introduction of antibacterial tiles to your kitchen during renovation could only add to the health benefits. Not only are our Bac-Tech tiles so clean you could make your dinner on them and eat your dinner off of them but a sanitary facelift using our eco-friendly porcelain tiles is sure to encourage a fresh start with regard to eating habits and clean-living in general.

A safe environment for family time

We know that today’s digital world makes family time more of a premium than ever before but what if simply re-tiling your kitchen could help bring the family together? The Houzz survey found that 69% spent more time together as a family in the kitchen after its overhaul and 42% claimed an increase in sit-down meals. The interior design website makes a good suggestion to involve the kids in the planning of your kitchen renovation so that they are invested in its outcome. But we advise putting your children’s wellbeing first by using antibacterial tiles with a slip-resistant surface to create a safe environment where they can eat and mingle without running the risk of picking up nasties.

Traditionally, the kitchen is as much a space for socialising with family and friends as for food preparation, cooking and eating. Should you choose to use our antibacterial tiles in your renovation, whether it’s the amazing Arabescato Marble Effect or the ravishing Rosewood Effect tiles, you’re going to want to show off your new kitchen that’s as practical as it is stylish. Houzz found that 51% of participants in their survey hosted more dinner parties after a kitchen revamp and, just as our revolutionary antibacterial continue to prove the gourmet’s choice among the hospitality industry, Bac-Tech will surely impress your guests and make them feel right at home.
