This month, we want to shift gears a little bit and talk about the different styles and designs that homeowners will discover with tile. From classic trends to unique patterns, tile gives you the opportunity to customize your space the exact way you want it. Let’s take a look and see how:
One of the most significant features found in tile is its design versatility. From kitchens to baths to outdoor patios, tile can be used to style your space precisely to your liking. To help you get a better understanding of its versatility, we wanted to focus on a few different areas found throughout the home that can embrace all of tile’s benefits:
Kitchens: Tile is the perfect material for all styles of kitchens. Not only is there a varied selection, but tile is one of the easiest surfaces to clean and maintain. As homeowners, we all understand how important an easy-to-clean surface can be while prepping meals. With tile, you have the unbeatable benefit of a gorgeous design and low-maintenance surface. Plus, you can enjoy the fact that tile will not burn; therefore, you can place hot pots or pans on your tile countertops and be reassured that your surface will not be scorched or melted. Not to mention, tile can be used on practically any surface in the kitchen from floors to countertops to backsplash.
Family Rooms: Although we may not initially think of tile being placed in the living room, tile has been used in living areas for thousands of years. It is often chosen for its durability and unbeatable beauty. Plus, with tile being a versatile product, you can incorporate it on the floors, walls, or fireplace surround to create a stunning focal point.
Baths: Being one of the most popular areas in the home for tile, bathrooms give homeowners an endless realm of design possibilities. From shower borders to backsplashes and floor to ceiling design, tile can make quite the statement in your bathroom. Since tile is non-porous, it works perfectly in wet areas like bathrooms and leaves homeowners worry-free about mildew, bacteria, and fungi growth.
Outdoor Spaces: If you are looking to make the perfect outdoor oasis, tile can captivate guest’s attention with its beautiful craftsmanship and uniqueness. Tile offers outdoor spaces extra durability, easy maintenance, and slip resistance properties to help make it the perfect choice for patios, walkways, pools, and other outdoor designs. Plus, since tile is fired at more than 2,500 degrees, it is able to withstand harsh temperatures while maintaining its elegant beauty.
Commercial Properties: Tile is not limited to residential properties. Commercial real estate can experience all of tile’s benefits while adding a stylish twist to any space. From countertops in retail stores to wall decor in boardrooms, tile provides an upscale, chic redesign for any space.
Amongst being a beautiful and diverse design element, tile is easy to maintain. Be sure to check back next month where we will talk about its easy maintenance and cleaning regiments.
