Flooring and Carpeting/Query - reg vitrified tiles


I reside in India and I need an advice on the vitrified tiles for the new house that we are constructing. My concerns are ease of maintenance and anti-slip aspects since old people and kids are staying.These are my queries:

Which finish of vitrified tile is better - gloss or matte.    Which shade - lighter(white-based) or colored tile is better to give the room a better look?
Also which shade of tile can complement the duplex stairs that are in the living room?
Can different rooms have different tile designs (will that look odd? )


I am not a designer , if you want my personal opinion I like matte. As for color I like contrast. However I have been known to go monotone on occasion. And I believe that changing direction and color for different rooms adds a dramatic statement...if the room warrants that.

Tiles with texture and a matte finish will offer more foothold. If you are talking about marble or stone they are smooth ...but not slippery, unless water comes into the equation.
