Tile flooring is one of the most popular flooring options in the Sarasota and Tampa areas. This is often because it’s not easily damaged by water. Also, good tile is unlikely to be scratched by sand, kids, or a pet’s nails. However, if you’re replacing your floors and know you want tile, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the many options available today. Here are some tips to help you choose a tile you will love for years to come.
Think About the Room Where It Will Be Used
Before you decide on the shape, color scheme, installation pattern, or anything else, look at the room where the new tile is going. First, observe the existing floor. How dark or light is it? Think about how much natural light exists in the room. Turn on artificial lighting. Would lighter flooring brighten and enlarge the room? Would a darker color add drama and emphasize your style? Next, think about the elements you’re not changing. Make sure to consider colors and styles to complement the existing furniture, cabinets and wall color.
Wood-Look Tile, Decorative or Traditional Tile
Many popular tile flooring options today are wood-look styles. It’s a great option; however, if you plan on updating your flooring in a room adjacent to a space that already has a real wood floor, we recommend a different style of tile. Decorative tile can add visual interest and is a great option for a small room. This works especially well when you want the flooring to be the star of the space. Think about a hall bath or powder room. Today’s traditional tile comes in many styles that look great in these sort of spaces.
