Bigger and better than ever

While that traditional 12 X 12 tile size is still popular, they seem to be getting bigger and bigger, with 16 X 16 and 12 X 24. Some even go as large as 24 X 48. The larger format has fewer grout lines, making it easier to clean. Larger tiles also visually expand the room andgive a sense of more continuity, a big advantage with stone-look tiles because they look like quarry slabs.

It’s all about color

Gray is popular because the neutral backdrop allows you more freedom to decorate in any style and color. White is a stunning contrast with black; that will always be classic. If you want to add some warm, earthy tones, get a wood-look tile. Don’t be afraid of patterns, especially geometric, chevron, herringbone or hexagons.

Porcelain vs.ceramic

They’re both excellent choices but have some differences that make each better for different installations.

Porcelain is heavier, denser and waterproof, whether or not it’s glazed. Therefore, it’s best for floors in high traffic rooms like the kitchen or bath, or outside on decks and patio floors.

Ceramic tile is thinner and highly designed. It’s best for flooring in lower-traffic rooms and is also used for backsplashes and accent walls, as well as floors. It must be glazed to be waterproof and should be used indoors.
