Hottest Floor Tile Trends of 2018

Your home is an expression of your sense of style, so when you are ready for a renovation, you may want to incorporate one of these hot tile trends.

 

Penny Round Tiles

Common in early 1900s bathrooms or kitchens, penny round tiles have increased in popularity in the past few years. Today’s offerings are vibrant and unique with multiple colors, textures, and finishes.

 

Patterned Tile

Patterned tile brings dimension and character to a space. From historical patterns to art deco, geometric, and floral designs, these tiles can bring a ton of character to a space.

 

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)

Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) offers an endless array of visual appeal. It realistically mimics the appearance of natural materials such as wood or stone with embossed or textured surfaces, making it almost indistinguishable from the real thing. It offers a wide variety of patterns and styles that would be difficult to source, thus higher in expense, if the natural materials were used.

  • Reclaimed / Distressed “Wood” Tiles:A variety of plank sizes, colors, and finishes means you can have a timeless design of wood flooring without the hassle of maintenance.
  • “Metal” Tiles: Perfect for a modern or contemporary home or as striking feature in a traditional home.
  • “Brick” Tiles: Brick tiles offer a modern twist to a classic design element. This stylish and timeless look is available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures to suit your style.

LVT is also softer and can also tolerate conditions that these natural materials can’t. LVT is typically thicker than traditional vinyl flooring materials due to an added layer of heavy film covered with a UV-cured urethane that makes it scuff, stain, and scratch resistant, improving its wear and performance. This added thickness adds the advantages of sound absorption, heat insulation, and comfort underfoot. Another major advantage of LVT is its resistance to water damage, making it a great option for an area where you may have spills.
