Tile Options That'll Really Floor You

If you’ve been to one of our showrooms, you’ve probably seen our wide selection of tile flooring options.

There’s certainly a lot to choose from. If you’ve never taken on a flooring project before, finding the best ideas with which to implement them can be a tall task. Decoist had a helpful article detailing some different room themes that would go nicely with tile flooring. Some their ideas include:
Living room tile flooring 
The living room is where you welcome your guests, meet family members and friends. Our advice is to stick to ceramic flooring that is neutral, yet elegant. On the other hand there are carpet tiles offer plenty of room to improvise, but sticking to the classic designs and classy format serves you well. There are also porcelain tiles that look strikingly like real wood and are far more durable and moisture-resistant. Pick one of these if you really want a refined appearance.

Tile flooring for classy kitchens 
For decades, tiles have been part of many kitchens, but the latest trend has saw us moving from the monotonous ceramic tiles and opt for fancy Linoleum and bamboo floor tiles. They are both highly cost-effective, easy to maintain and clean and on top of these all, they offer a certain sense of eco-friendly feel. Of course, you can still go with the painted ceramic tiles that come in hundreds of designs, but remember that they’re not cozy in winter especially if you live in a colder area.

Tile flooring for bathrooms to rejuvenate your senses 
In case of bathroom floor tiles, their resistance to water and stains is the most important factor you should consider. There are loads of ceramic tile options for bathroom floors — use floral designs, different colored tiles for borders, crisscross patterns and any other inventive form you come up with. Remember that you can use the soft and gentle tones to give your bathroom a lovely romantic and laid back appeal, while solid or bold tiles will make sure that everything is soaked in contemporary style.
