Terra cotta tile floor for kitchen?
I'm considering terra cotta tiles. I like the warm, casual feel that they impart to a room. If I go this way, I'd also use colorful Mexican tiles (something not too bold) for the backsplash, and I'd have small (perhaps 4") accent tiles every so often on the floor.
I know that these are relatively soft -- as tiles go. How do they hold up? Any concerns about these tiles?
