What tile flooring formats are available?

Why wouldn't you want tile floors in the home? They're stylish, beautiful, durable, add value to a property, and are easy to clean.

Just walk into a tile store, and you'll be surrounded by beauty. There will be an almost unlimited number of colors, designs, shapes, and sizes.

Did you know it’s available in a plank format?

That's right. Planks of any size are often associated with wood look tile, but you can also use them for stone slab echoes.

Wood-and-stone look tiles are trending hot right now. However, that's a trend that's expected to last for years.

Although they can be made from either ceramic or porcelain, the latter is often preferred. That's because of the large format and fewer seams.

Come into our tile store to see porcelain designs. They include Fabrique (a wood look) by American Olean or Bistrot ™ (a marble look) by Ragno USA.

About herringbone tile layouts

Herringbone first came on the scene in the 1970s. Then, it was the first parquet pattern. Now it's back in a big way, and we're seeing it in everything from tile layouts to jewelry and wall and window coverings.

The herringbone resembles a fish's bone structure and is made of tile. Small and large rectangles are rows of V-shapes placed at 45-degree angles.

Other arrangements include:

Please seek the advice of the installers in our tile shop regarding the distinctive layouts. They can be created with squares and rectangles of all sizes, hexagons, and mosaics.

One unique layout is random, which utilizes hexagonal shapes in several colors. It makes a big impression!

The basketweave pattern is timeless. It uses tiny mosaic floor tile squares that look like the stitching of a woven basket. Diamond uses square tiles placed at 45-degree angles.
