Remodeling your home can be an exciting time, as you put your personal stamp on it. Choosing flooring likely involves how durable it is, how much maintenance it needs, and its overall appearance. In addition, you might also want to make sure that you are adding value to your home in your flooring choice.
With that in mind, here are 5 tile and stone flooring trends to consider before making your flooring choice.
Sustainable Flooring Options
With the continued push for green or environmentally friendly building options, it is worth considering green flooring options. A few of these choices include reclaimed wood, cork, engineered wood, and bamboo. These flooring choices can be easy to maintain and durable, as well as enhancing the design of your home.
Stone is a natural, non-manufactured material and does not require chemicals, stains, or glazes. Plus, it has a timeless look that can make stone appealing in any design.
Tile Flooring Resembles Wood
One of the newest trends is for tile to have a wood grain appearance. It gives you the benefit of tile’s durability, with the beauty of a wood design throughout your home. These tiles are a great option for kitchens and bathrooms, where wood and water do not mix. This timeless look can bring value to your home, while providing years of functionality.
Distressed Flooring Looks
Today’s homeowners are looking for that luxury aged look and distressed wood or concrete floors can provide it. Using artificial processes, you can create the aged look on your flooring. Keep in mind, however, that this type of flooring is likely going to look best in specific designs, such as an industrial or rustic look.
Using tile, you can explore different patterns. There is no reason to stick with the traditional brick pattern. Choosing a chevron or herringbone pattern can accent your room’s design or be a stylish way to make your floor stand out.
Another option is using geometric patterns, creating an eye-catching look. You might create the pattern with square or rectangular tiles or use geometric-patterned tiles to create the look.
Large Porcelain Tiles and Trickling Floor Patterns
Another trend that can make a room stand out is the use of large porcelain tiles and trickling floor patterns. These options can give a unique flair to any room. You can display a variety of different textures, sizes, and colors within your flooring.
