There are four significant trends in floor tile that will extend well beyond this year. First, understand the difference between a trend and a fad. Trends are updated to already time-honored products; they've undergone extensive research and consumer focus groups. A fad is a knee-jerk, short-lived reaction to something someone thinks is a good idea, such as the pet rock craze of the 1970s.
No one can doubt the allure of wood, and both wood and wood looks are expected to trend for at least 15 years. So if you crave wood in wet areas like the bath or kitchen, this is your solution because it combines beauty and function.
Thanks to a modern technology called Inkjet, intricate patterns with raised grains and color variations are possible. We'll cut into planks of varying sizes, and you can get as creative as you want to form unique layouts and patterns. Come into our tile shop to explore our gorgeous products from names such as Daltile, American Olean, Marazzi, and Happy Feet, among others.
Stone look tile
Quarried stone slabs can be pricey, so tile stone mimics are an affordable solution. It's durable, elegant, and, like all tile, doesn't attract dust and is easy to clean. You can get marble, granite, quartz, or other stone looks.
The bigger, the better, say, designers, homeowners, and the staff at our tile store. They also visually enlarge a room with fewer grout lines, i.e., visual interruptions. They're good choices for the significant, bold, colorful patterns so popular today.
Porcelain can be as large as 24-inches square and can be made to look like anything; in fact, it's the preferred choice for wood and stone looks.
It's also heavier, more dense, waterproof whether or not it is glazed, and can be used outside.
