But, it doesn’t have to be merely a dream.
With more and more people wanting to have a home that reflects their personal style, there are some great new trends in flooring emerging to make this a reality. Here are just a few.
While most tile styles have traditionally been square, a new trend is rectangular tiles, in sizes such as 12 by 24 inches. Wood grain finished ceramic or porcelain tiles (designed to look like wooden floor boards) range in sizes from 6 by 36 inches to 8 inches by 8 feet. These “faux wood” tiles are much more popular than simply installing a hardwood bathroom floor for two reasons. First, they require lower maintenance, as hardwood floors would swell as they take on moisture, and require refinishing. Second, tiled floors allow for radiant floor heating, which is placing a heating element under the floor, eliminating that cold floor on your bare feet.
Another interesting trend in tile size and placement is to pick four different sizes of stone tile, and place them in a randomized pattern. This is an interesting way to break the tradition of having the entire floor look uniform all the way across.
For those that prefer a dark, rich look to their living space, black bathroom tiles are growing in popularity. Similar to dark trends going into kitchens, these tiles create a darker, moodier environment.
A final recent trend is geometric tiles. The shape of these tiles can add some pizazz and drama without being too wild. However if you are really into color, than you can use geometric tiles with bright powerful colors like red, orange, or purple to provide a much more dramatically stated look.
