Three Popular Decorative Tile Trends

Decorative tile is the perfect design choice for any room in the house. As a flooring material, ceramic tile is a durable and easy to maintain surface that will last years longer than carpet or vinyl. A tile backsplash in the kitchen is a high end complement to granite, marble, and quartz countertops. Decorative tile in a bathroom adds a spa like feel that stands up to moisture and humidity. Three current decorative tile trends include glass tiles, mosaic tiles, and wood look tiles.

Glass tiles are a perfect way to add some bling to a kitchen or bathroom. Designers are recommending glass tiles for backsplashes, shower walls, and accent borders. Glass tiles are available in a beautiful range of colors that can make a striking statement. The reflective quality of glass can make a room feel larger. White subway tiles have long been a classic look in kitchens. Today’s glass subway tiles in shades of grays, greens, and blues give a dramatic update to a kitchen design. Stunning iridescent glass tiles, with their shimmering reflective quality, infuse a level of sophistication to the design. Recycled glass tiles are an eco-friendly material popular in today’s “green” design trend.

Mosaic Tiles

Mosaic tiles can create an eye catching accent wall, border, or floor. From retro to modern colors and styles, mosaics are available in a variety of price points to fit any budget. Mosaic tiles in metallic tones add a contemporary, sophisticated design look. Tiles with stainless steel or copper accents as well as solid metal mosaic tiles are gaining popularity in high end kitchen design. Natural stone pebble mosaics make a striking statement on shower floors. Mosaic tiles are even showing up on fireplace surrounds.

Wood Tiles

One of the hottest decorating trends today uses porcelain tiles that have the look of real wood. These tiles are a perfect choice in places that may get wet including bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, mud rooms, and basements. Wood look tile is even being used on shower walls. This durable product is easy to maintain. Just mop to clean and periodically seal the grout. It is a practical flooring choice for families with children and pets. The realistic textures and authentic looking grain make it hard to tell the difference between these tiles and real wood.

The thousands of tile choices available today means there is something for every taste, style, and budget. Contact Premier Surfaces to speak with one of our design consultants, they are ready to help homeowners make the best tile choices to complement any room.

  • 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.”
