Avon Lake homeowners looking for an elegant tile floor on a budget often choose porcelain. However, porcelain tile isn’t only enjoyed for its price tag. Advanced printing technology makes it possible for porcelain to mimic a wide array of tile looks and the nonporous surface is incredibly durable in household environments. The experts at Floor Coverings International Cleveland West can help you find a porcelain style to match your aesthetic, but first let’s take a look at some of the most popular trends today!
Marble is soft, porous, and easy to scratch. While its high maintenance nature makes it less than ideal for homeowners, the beauty of marble is unparalleled. Fortunately, porcelain tile can be made to look just like marble tile, giving your home the appearance of marble tile without the hassle or cost. Unlike marble, porcelain tile does not need to be resealed every year. The best place to install porcelain tiles that look like marble is in your bathroom, kitchen or foyer.
Wood floors can’t be wet mopped, which means they are harder to clean, and wood can also be easy to scratch. This is why many homeowners who want the look of wood and the convenience of ceramic tile turn to porcelain tile. Porcelain can even be textured like wood, for a more rustic appearance. For homeowners hoping to install wood in their bathroom, porcelain tiles are the perfect alternative. Porcelain is water resistant and won’t ever warp because of moisture.
Large Format Tiles
Large format tiles are larger than standard wood tiles. Porcelain comes in a range of sizes, up to 24″x24″. Large format tiles can give the illusion of space and can make small rooms feel bigger. Large format tiles also have fewer grout lines to worry about cleaning, making these tiles even easier to maintain. Consider highlighting the size of your large format tiles with smaller accent tiles around the border.
