Spring 2017 Tile Samples: Words and Pictures

Spring 2017 Tile Samples: Words and Pictures

One of those smart guys from history once said, a picture is worth a thousand words. We think so, too. If you are looking for the latest flooring ideas for a new home or a remodel, we have an array of tile and stone flooring options for you on our website.

A Few Words About Our Pictures

Before you check out our tile and stone options, we want to share a few things about the pictures.

First, marble is hot. But it keeps you cool during the hot months of summer. It is so very sleek in the bathroom, but have you considered it as a backsplash in the kitchen? How about a marble wall in the foyer? It’s time to take marble out of the shower, and let it add panache to other places in your home.

Second, if the cost of real marble is out of your budget, did you know that there is marble-look tile that will blow you away with how close it looks like the real thing? And for a fraction of the price. Mix faux marble tiles with a dash of metal as trim around your pool for a splash of elegance and a soupçon of bling.

Lastly, here’s a tip about the latest new interior design trends, — large format tiles. Okay, it is not as great as a hot stock tip, but more and more designers are using 12 x 24 format tiles. These tiles offer sleek styling, and fewer grout lines. That makes the tile easier to clean, because there is less grout to scrub. Because, as we all know, the cleaning is more about the grout and less about the tile.

Ideas You Can Use

Petrified Blanco. No, it is not the latest cocktail in the mixology craze. It is a stone tile. It comes in 6×24 format. It is not your standard marble.  Use it to make your bathroom stand out.

Bevalo Mint
. It is another marble that stands out from the crowd. It’s greenish cast brings a touch of the forest into any room. The 12 x 24 inch tiles can create an almost seamless backsplash. Add white cabinets and butcher-block counters to make your kitchen hit all of the hottest new trends!

Daltile Florentine Field Tile
. Not ready to jump into marble or stone, this tile gives the look of fine marble. But it’s not. It just looks like fine Carrera marble. It’s glazed porcelain. Making it tough. Porcelain tile is more durable than marble or natural stone, and easier to clean. What’s not to love?
