Tile flooring has been evolving for many years, and it continues to offer many exciting new options in 2018. Easy to maintain and beautiful to look at, the colors, patterns and styles can set the tone for any space they grace. Many designers are going even further to create unique interest and designs on walls through tiling.
A revival of an ancient tile – terrazzo – is seeing a big comeback in 2018. It has always had appeal, but with the mix-and-match tile trend soaring, terrazzo is a perfect fit. This composite tile is much stronger and new choices span a wider range of colors than in the past. Its subtle textures allow it to offset busier patterns in the room while still holding its own with complementary hues.
Terrazzo floors are taking the place of concrete flooring in public areas of the house like living rooms, where they offer a slick, contemporary look with the added interest of texture. Terrazzo is also customizable with such beautiful choices as mother-of-pearl, abalone, marble, glass and more that add a pop of dimension and depth.
Wood Look Throughout the House
The wood kitchen flooring trend continues into 2018, and tile styles are there to answer the call for those who prefer tile. Wood grain tiling is the perfect way to have the best of both worlds, and you can even jump into the hot new parquet floor trend with these tiles. In any room, entry or hallway of your home, you can have a low-maintenance herringbone tile floor that adds a subtle rhythm to the space. You can even create a geometric pattern under tables or as a foyer centerpiece; many designers are now creating tile inlays in hardwood floors just outside of bathrooms. Looking like area rugs, they add color and pattern in an area prone to moisture.
There’s no limit to the looks you can achieve with tile – new patterns, colors, shapes and textures offer the style you want with minimal maintenance and years of enjoyment. Let the experts at Flooring Innovations help you find the perfect solution to your flooring needs that will complement your decor and your lifestyle.
