New innovations for an old product: Tile flooring trends
Tile flooring has been around since ancient times and has proven to be a classic, permanent flooring which is also highly water-resistant.Nevertheless, new applications and designs come along all of the time, which adds a little flavor to these traditional floors. So,what are some of the trends today flooring?
Porcelain and ceramic come in all shapes and sizes, but today, large format tile floors have become very popular with our customers. What do we mean by large format? Anything that is at least 12 inches by 12 inches (1 square foot) in size. Yet, many of these tiles are significantly larger than that (some are better than 4 feet in radius!) and are large enough to cover large sections of your kitchen or bathroom.
While color choices vary, patterns are always a popular option when it comes to floors. Today, black and white are often chosen to present a simple, minimalistic appearance. In other cases, borders are used, or tiles are offset from one another. If you can imagine it, we can likely create it with tile flooring.
Porcelain has a wide range of possibilities when it comes to design and appearance. One popular look is to have porcelain that looks like hardwood.This provides you with the benefit of a classic wood-look while retaining all of the benefits of tile.
When it comes to bathrooms, tiles that are textured or slip-resistant are also a popular trend. Slips and falls can happen at any time, so these are made more with safety in mind than anything else. While coatings can be added to a floor, other products are made with a built-in slip-resistant texture.
Tile walls and floors for bathroom showers have been around for many years, and they have become a popular option once again. They are durable, attractive, and easy to clean; what more could you want.While you are having your flooring done, why not redo your whole bathroom space?
