A Look at This Year’s Tile Flooring Trends

Curious about 2015 tile flooring trends? Ready to start a new flooring project in your kitchen or bathroom and looking for ideas? Here are some of the hottest new trends for tile flooring in Chattanooga and beyond.

2015 Tile Flooring Trends

Design that stands the test of time

Flooring trends have a love/hate relationship with tile based on material and color – tile fads pass by quickly and choosing an option with staying power can be tricky. However, one successful style that has withstood the test of time is the pattern of neutral colors. By sticking with creams, golds, grays, light browns and whites, you are ensuring that your floor will match well with other furniture and materials and never easily go out of style.

Durability

Tile floors need to stand the test of time, and given how time tends to treat cheaper materials like linoleum and old vinyl, it’s not surprising that modern trends heavily favor stone and ceramic, with an emphasis on stone products. If you have a very specific color scheme to match, then ceramic can help you pinpoint the perfect gloss and shade, but otherwise, take a look at stone options. Not everything is expensive marble – there’s some great work being done with limestone, travertine and granite these days.

Large tiles

Large tiles are the way to go in 2015 and beyond. There are a couple reasons for this trend toward larger tiles – at least a foot across and often larger. Large tiles look more calming, more minimalistic, and more modern – small tiles can work in certain mosaic or pattern situations, but otherwise they tend to clash with walls and bring to mind 70’s-style kitchens. Large tiles are also, thankfully, easier to install.

Concrete

If you want a really modern tile pattern, consider using concrete. Yes, people can use concrete in the house, and expansive concrete tiles can be very effective in the right space. Of course, the ultra-modern “gray slab” look isn’t for everyone, but concrete tile does come in a variety of other colors and styles to help match your own ideas.

The new age of vinyl

Older vinyl had its problems, yes, but modern vinyl tiles are a different animal. These tiles are better quality, very durable and come in a variety of styles and surfaces that allow them to mimic – at least somewhat – stone and other materials. Plus, they work great in more messy areas like the bathroom or laundry room where spills may be an issue.

  • Our kitchen looks awesome!

    “I wanted to tell you what a wonderful experience Mike and I had with putting in our granite counters last week. We had never done a make-over before, so when my husband suggested putting in granite counters I groaned.  Little did I know at the time how smooth and painless everyone at Premier Surfaces would make it. Every encounter was extremely professional. Our kitchen looks awesome and I really appreciate having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people. If we ever decide to do anything like that in the future we will use definitely use Premier Surfaces.”

  • Done right the FIRST time!

    “I walked in on a Friday, and was surprised to see just how busy they were — always a good sign of how a business is doing. In the process of waiting my turn, a number of people asked if I had been assisted yet. Customer service isn’t something you get in most places these days. I walked around their facility and really got a different feel compared to how I felt at other granite shops. The selection was great, everyone was friendly, and they took the time to teach me about the differences in quality for all of the chioces of a fabricator out there. The professionalism, friendly and incredibly knowledgable staff set them apart from the other “competitors”. My kitchen looks beautiful and the investment in my home was well worth it to have it completed correctly THE FIRST TIME. I will be upgrading a few bathrooms in the future and can’t think of any other granite fabricator I’d rather use.”
