When considering new flooring options, shoppers aren’t always aware of every last style available, especially when it comes to tile. Tile has always been a popular option because of how durable and easy to clean it is. But as technology has gotten more advanced, so have the tiles. Here are some of our favorite tiling options for Orlando homes that stray away from your classic ceramic and porcelain ideas.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is one of the coolest flooring options on the affordable market right now. Take everything you love about the maintenance of tile and the beautiful look of hardwood, and you get LVT. It has been made possible for these tiles to come in almost any style you could want for your Orlando home. With hardwood lookalikes, vibrant colors or patterns, and customizable options, LVT works for any home. Try a dark hardwood tile in varied widths for a statement floor that doesn’t break the bank.
With the amount of natural stone available, this tile option would look beautiful in any home. They are incredibly sturdy and the natural aesthetic brings a rustic feel. The different stone styles offer many benefits, but one of the most variable options is travertine. The stone accepts dye evenly and can be cut into different shapes to fit your home. Compared to other more rigid stones such as marble or granite, travertine is more forgiving on joints and would fit better in multiple types of rooms. Each stone showcases their own unique veins and splashes that give a personality to the different rooms you choose it for.
This edgy trend has come up with the rise of eco-friendly focused flooring. Made from recycled glass bottles, the tiles can come in a single color or as a beautiful multicolored mosaic. Since glass isn’t porous, you don’t have to worry about set-in stains, mold, or mildew. The reflective and bright glass will open up your space and make it more colorful and modern. You will have easy cleanups and can maintain this sustainable statement for years. If you’re not ready to make the jump to glass floors, start out with a beautiful backsplash in your kitchen or bathroom.
