Its completely up to you what sort of florring you have. Ofsted will just want to see via a risk assess for example how you instend to keep the children safe and minimise any risks. Perhaps you just need to point out to inspector that you have identified things like ensuring spills are dealt with straight away, very young toddlers are directly supervised or not allowed in the kitchen etc.

hi have terracotta tiles in the kitchen and dining area and tiles in the hall, they are slippy if they get wet and ofsted have never said anything about them. and to be honest i don't think they are on my house risk assessment either
