Tile is one of the best ways to bring personality and style to your Elkton, Kennett Square, Chester County area home through flooring. It’s available in an endless variety of colors, patterns and textures, and it’s durable enough to stand the test of time, even in the busiest households.
Wood-look and fabric-look tile has become very popular in recent years, and this trend continues in 2017. These impersonators are a great way to get the look of high-end, high-maintenance materials at a fraction of the cost. These faux tiles are also very durable and easy to care for. They can be installed in any room of the house, including below grade and outdoors, without concern for moisture or humidity.
The subway pattern is a classic tile design, but many homeowners are embracing other traditional patterns in 2017. Herringbone and chevron are popular tile designs for bathroom showers, kitchen backsplashes, and even flooring throughout the home. Tile mosaics can also be used to create designs or images that are unique to your home, truly reflecting your personality and style.
While patterns are fun, unique tile shapes can really make a room stand out. Hexagon tiles have long been a popular option, but traditional penny-round tiles are making a come back, too. These small, round tiles can have quite an impact when installed over a large surface area.
The classic white, grey, and espresso-colored tiles are still popular, and will surely never go out of style. However, many homeowners are turning to bold pops of color this year, especially in small areas, such as the entryway flooring or a walk-in shower stall. Aqua has emerged as the color of the season, bringing a cheery lightness to any room it graces.
