Choosing the right tile flooring for your installation

Tile automatically increases your property values, especially when it's tile for bathrooms or the kitchen floors or backsplashes. It's also one of those materials that's so versatile it looks as good in the living room and hallway as it does anywhere else. It's flexible in price, too; you can mix and match and combine to make unique design statements and create various price points. All can be used on the floor, but check the box carefully to be sure it's labeled for the right grade.

Bathroom tile trends

You'll be amazed when you walk into our tile store in Surrey, BC, and see the variety of colors, patterns, designs, shapes, and sizes. The bathroom is said to set the tone for the entire house, and one of the gorgeous looks is that of an elegant and serene upscale spa with glass tiles on the wall and marble tile on the floor. Wood-look tiles with planks of different lengths allow you to create herringbone patterns or, if you'd rather, enhance the organic look with some realistic wood grains like oak, cherry, and maple. Porcelain, a large format tile, works incredibly well, and it comes in finishes that can make it look weathered, distressed, or even whitewashed.

You can also add some unique style by using stone or concrete tile with the wood looks. Other trends include stylish subways; those 3 X 6 commonplace tiles now come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. People are mixing them up to create unique designs. Metallics are glittery and stunning, but also edgy. Dramatic patterns, such as encaustic or hexagons, chevrons, or herringbone, can be subtle or have bold, contrasting colors. Geometric shapes are finding their place on both floors and shower walls. If you want something highly decorative and more slip-resistant, consider those tiny, often glass-coated mosaics. Since you need to use more tiles, you'll need more grout, which can provide some traction.

What is inkjet technology?

This is an advancement that enables you to create realistic and very intricate patterns. A machine that looks much like a computer printer has four inkjets. The colors flow, creating pixels and images. That is opposed to how it was once done: hand-painted, which was time-consuming, inefficient, and not very accurate.
