Like with most things in life there are new trends that come and go, but one new trend, within interior design, which I think is here to stay is Floor Tiles. They have been available for years and it wouldn’t be a surprise to find them in the bathroom of most houses. But today you can also find them in the kitchen, hallways and conservatories.
The most common materials chosen were carpets, then everyone got on board with the idea of laminate flooring and if your budget allowed real wood flooring. Now more and more people are choosing floor tiles. But why? Below are the main reasons why I believe you should follow the crowd and consider them for your home:
Modern Look – Floor Tiles in other rooms such as Hallway, kitchen and other rooms in house is a relatively new concept and more popular. Therefore to keep you home in touch with modern taste and designs then you should look into Tiling. Picture yourself walking into the hallway of a house with light coloured flooring leading all the way through to the kitchen with the same floor tiles. It creates a modern, open and classy look that all your guests will notice.
Choice – A massive reason why floor tiles are highly sought after is because of the amount of styles and colour choices available. Whether you’re looking for a neutral stone affect or basic white tiles to create a fresh, modern look there are many variations available. You could also choose quartz tiles which have shiny metallic pieces inlaid within the tile which sparkle in the light. So if you’re looking for that something different and trying to give your room that WOW factor then this could be the option for you.
Add Value – If you have installed floor tiles and you’re selling your house, they will help add value. They are classed as a luxury material and as they create such a great modern look that will make your house more attractive to potentials buyers, it will add value. Plus it could be the deciding factor in the sale of your house.
Easier to Clean – A very good bonus is how much easier they are to clean. You spill red wine on a carpet then you got a hard job of removing the stain. If you spill red wine on tiled flooring you’ll be finished cleaning within a few minutes. Plus general cleaning is easier, as carpets are proven to hold all sorts of bacteria no matter how many times you hoover. They are great for pets as-well, as all the hair and dirt that comes with them can be easily brushed up.
Floor Tiling will always look amazing and not ages too much, whereas carpets can, with time, start to look faded and dated. So floor tiles should be the only choice when you thinking of what flooring to have in your home.
