Wood look Tile Flooring is in! And, no, we’re not joking! Wood-look tiles are changing the face of Tile trends in 2015—just take a look at our Forest Lane Porcelain Tile! You may never have realized that the wood floor you were so impressed with was actually Ceramic Tile! With wood-look Tile Flooring, you can get the look of wood without the worry of getting water on it. Trust me; I’ve spilled water all over my Ceramic Tile. The latest technology has brought tile that looks so much like wood it’s hard to tell which is which.
Wood-look tile flooring can be used in any room of your house where real wood is typically used, but it can also be installed in rooms where hardwood was never an option before. In addition to the warm brown of traditional hardwood flooring, ceramic tiles also give a more innovative decorator access to shades of deep chocolate or pale grey that can completely transform the look of a room. And because wood-look tiles don’t need to be glazed, they can tolerate heavy traffic without chipping or cracking. We personally love the idea of getting the look of wood without the upkeep.
In 2015 there is an explosion of sizes, shapes, materials and patterns. But what is currently trending for Tile Floors are large-format tiles. As opposed to the tried-and-true 12” x 12” tiles, try going bigger. After all, bigger is better, right? We think so. With larger tiles, they not only look great, but the larger sizes also mean more tile surface and less grout lines to clean. Tile also comes in planks, which helps give the look and feel of wood. Typically, longer planks from 36” to 48” are popular among Tiles today. With long planks, your floors can resemble that of Hardwood flooring—no one will even notice the difference.
Bring your tile to life! Staggering rectangular tiles is in! By doing this, you can create flow and movement throughout the room. The rise in popularity of the staggering of tiles is due in part to wood-look tile—one of the hottest trends in 2015. The placement of staggered tiles adds depth and movement to any room because your eyes are drawn to the different positions of the tiles. One simple design can turn any space into an incredible work of art.
When it comes to updating your home’s flooring, look to the trends of 2015—I know we are! Tile isn’t just for bathrooms anymore. From wood-looks to bigger tiles, your flooring can really stand out with the latest trends in tile flooring for 2015.
