Wood-look tile flooring from Floor Specialists in Wellington, FL

Top four tile flooring trends

Tile flooring is more than just a surface; it's a design tool that will enable you to align with some current trends. It adds architectural interest to any floor in your home and comes in a myriad of shapes, sizes, and designs.

There’s only one place to go for tile flooring in Wellington, Fl. and that’s at Floor Specialists in Wellington. Come explore our extensive inventory.

This year there are so many trends, such as colors (both vibrant and neutral!) as well as metallics and texturing; wire-brushed appearances are especially hot this year. Concrete adds that industrial chic, especially appropriate for contemporary homes.

This isn’t just for the floor; it’s also used on walls, backsplashes and tub/shower surrounds. Be sure to discuss your needs in detail with your tile flooring retailer.

Right now, these looks are the hottest:

  • Wood-looks. This trend is expected to last for at least 15-20 years and, thanks to technology, such as Ink Jet, there's a lot of realistic mimicries. Wood-look ceramics are especially good for bathrooms, where wood is desired but not often possible, because of the water and moisture issues. Now you can have it with no worries.
  • Marble. Classic elegance defines marble but quarried slabs come with a pretty steep price tag. Whether porcelain or ceramic, it mimics this, or any other stone, including slate, travertine, granite, and more. 
  • Larger and larger formats.  These days, they’re getting bigger and bigger.  Porcelain, already considered a large format, can get as big as 8 X 10. Large format ceramics, especially when in lighter colors, will visually expand a room.  There fewer seams and grout lines can give it a more continuous look.
  • Gray tiles. Gray started to get popular about five years ago and it keeps gaining momentum.  It provides a neutral background and, when added with some bold colorful accessories and furnishings, it makes a big design statement.

Design with function

Ceramics are durable, waterproof, and easy to keep clean. It's an excellent heat conductor that Floridians especially will appreciate; when the room is chilly, it transfers to bare feet and will cool the entire body.

 Installation is laborious and layout can be difficult; leave it to the professionals.
