Are you looking for inspiration for your next tile project? If your bathroom is feeling outdated or your kitchen is looking worn down, updating your tile is a great way to give a room new life. With so many options and varieties out there, it can be hard to know which tile flooring is the right pick for your home.

Here are four things Floor Coverings International North Jersey recommends that you to consider when choosing to add or update tile in your Mahwah, Paramus, Wayne, and North Jersey home:

1) Shape and Size

When you’re picking out your tiles, don’t feel like you have to choose traditional sizes or shapes. Using a unique tile shape, such as a hexagon, can add a lot of visual interest and give an artistic feel to a room. Using different sizes of tiles is another way to add more visual interest. Use large rectangle tiles as a kitchen backsplash to give a sleek, modern look to your kitchen and make it stand out.

2) Color

Colored tiles are a great way to make a bold statement in a room and really personalize your space. Tile comes in many varieties and it can be fun to pick out unique materials and colors to create a statement wall. Using bold tile on one wall, as a backsplash, or in a shower can brighten up the whole space. Another option is to pick a color theme and choose several different shapes and sizes of tile that are in the same color family to create a cohesive, interesting effect throughout the room.

3) Pattern

If you’re looking for a subtle way to get creative with your tile flooring, laying the tiles in a pattern is a good option. Rectangular tiles can be laid in herringbone or chevron patterns which gives a room a trendy, modern look. Another option is to choose tiles with a printed pattern on them instead of ones that are just one color. 

4) Texture

Tile flooring with texture is a great way to add interesting detail to a room. Even vinyl tile now comes with realistic textures that make it a luxurious, quality option. Wood flooring is still an extremely popular choice and is a look that will last through the years. Real wood floors are too much of an investment for some homeowners, however, and that’s where wood-look tile can be a great alternative! Wood-look tile is an amazing material that mimics the look of hardwood floors but is made out of ceramic, porcelain, or vinyl. What makes these tiles so great is that they look just like hardwood, but are more durable and water-resistant! These can add a beautiful effect to a modern bathroom.

The type of tile you choose has a big effect on the overall feel of a room. Use these ideas to make your home feel more unique and stylish!
