PRO TILING TIPS
LONGER LENGTHS IN CERAMIC FIELD TILES
Brick pattern is a classic design and is always in style. For a contemporary spin, try the longer tiles. You can find the long lengths in stone as well as ceramic and porcelain.
FULL WALL INSTALLATIONS
Colorful three dimensional tiles, decorative tiles, and mosaics are all the rage. These tiles help create architectural feature walls that attract your focus.
Encaustic or cement tiles are also being used inside & out in areas to add a sense of design and color punch. A little old and a little new goes a long way. Creating “rugs” out of patterned tiles on the floor or doing a whole floor of these tiles is simply divine. It adds character to a home. These tiles are so hot, you are also seeing them as accents, whole wall installations, backsplashes and cabinet faces.
Many manufacturers encourage customizing your patterns by changing their colors. Make your accents your own by coloring them the way you want.
MIX IT UP
The days of the one color bath are over. Definitely do your floor tile a different type or color than your wall tile. Absolutely, use different patterns and materials together to add texture and interest. Consider contrasting tile and grout. No more matchy matchy!
