When you add elements that have texture, it gives the room that "za-za zoom" factor. If a backsplash wall or flooring feels a little flat, you may want to add some visual interest with some of these textured tiles, all of which you’ll find in our tile flooring showroom.
Trending tiles with texture
1. Mosaics. This highly decorative ceramic is ornate, tiny but durable, and mold-and-mildew resistant, making it especially popular for bathroom floors. Mosaics can be as small as 1 X 1 and have an almost pebble-like quality, also often used as accents on floors, walls, and backsplashes.
2. Slate: Right now, earthy neutral-toned colors are trending, especially in rustic decors. Slate, with its primarily gray color with pink, blue, brown, or green, is one of the more desired textured choices.
3. Wood-look: Most ceramics these days, thanks to Inkjet Technology, can be made to look like anything, including wood, stone, fabric, and leather, and with Inkjet, the most intricate patterns can be created. Wood-look, which combines the beauty of wood with waterproof capabilities, offers realistic raised grains and assorted colors, including the high trending variation.
4. Stackstone: A much sought-after choice for small areas like backsplashes, fireplaces, and showers, this stunning choice provides little, long stacks to create an irregular, almost three-dimensional brick-lay effect.

About traction or grip
Textured tiles aren't just visually appealing, but they also increase grip, especially when they're tiny, like mosaics, which also have many grout lines. However, ceramics can be slippery when wet, so check the box label, which should read: Coefficient of Friction (COF), .50 for residential and .60 for commercial.
