Endless Tile Styles and Design Trends

From bright, bold colors and patterned tile to timeless, neutral classics, tile is available in hundreds of styles to suit any design. Square tiles, hexagon-shaped tiles, and round tiles are just a few of the common shapes, but rectangular, fish scale, and arabesque tiles are also available in tons of colors and patterns. You can also find marble, floral, natural stone, and geometric tiles to suit your specific space. Wood-look tile is one of the trends that combines the natural warmth of wood and the cool durability of tile to create a beautiful floor perfect for any space in your home.

Discover Your Creative Side

While other flooring options can also be found in many designs, there is simply no end to the creativity and one-of-a-kind designs you can make. For example, tile can be laid in different patterns like brick, herringbone, stacked, or chevron to add visual interest and flow to a space. Even a classic style can be transformed with a creative pattern. It can also be installed on walls and backsplashes, which makes for a detailed space that accomplishes any design. Along with the different patterns and areas where tile can be installed, you can also add unique features like borders, choose to mix and match tile styles and types, or create a statement with mosaics that highlight one specific aspect of your space. From natural stone to ceramic in your favorite color, you can let your creativity and personality shine with a tile floor inspired by you!

Tile Durability and Long-Lasting Strength

When creating the perfect home design, it's easy to focus primarily on the aesthetic and physical look of the space. However, it's equally important to choose a new floor that will be able to handle your daily life. One of the primary reasons to choose tile is because tile is incredibly durable, resisting stains and scratches. It can be exposed to all kinds of wear and tear like pets, kids, and unexpected messes. Tile is not likely to crack or chip even in high-traffic areas, and when properly installed, it can last for many years. It's also water-resistant, so you don't have to worry about common mishaps or accidents causing severe damage. Also, Carpet One offers exclusive tile warranties that can save you in the long run.

Easy Tile Maintenance

Whether you choose to install tile in an entryway, hallway, or your entire home, you'll be happy to know that another great reason to choose tile is its easy maintenance and resistance to water and stains. Since it's a hard-surface flooring material, dust and debris don't stick on the surface, which means sweeping up dirt can be done with a broom or a vacuum. Tile is low-maintenance and easy to clean, and scrubbing grout lines occasionally is quick and easy and will lead to your tile floors lasting for many years. Check out our tile maintenance guide to learn more about caring for tile floors.

 

Porcelain vs Ceramic

When it comes to choosing between porcelain tile or ceramic tile, there are many factors to consider. How do you know if you should choose porcelain or ceramic? First, consider the area where you want to install tile. In high-traffic flooring areas and spaces that need waterproof floors, porcelain is a great choice. Porcelain is the densest type of tile, and it is 100% waterproof, which makes it ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, entryways, and other spaces where moisture and heavy traffic is common.

Ceramic tile is suitable for moderate and low-traffic areas, accent walls, and more, so if you're planning on installing tile in these areas, ceramic or porcelain would both work well. Both ceramic and porcelain tiles are hypoallergenic, easy to clean and maintain, and durable, but the one that fits your home best greatly depends on your budget, style, and area of installation.
