You love your house, but it just doesn’t give you the same warm, inviting feeling that it used to. Perhaps you’ve been longing for a change. From floors to walls, indoors and out, tile has got you covered. Tile is not only functional but it’s also very decorative and can change the look of any room.
At A World of Tile, our tile is suitable for any kind of residential application and it’s easy to care for. Not to mention, there is no need for intensive chemical cleaning or maintenance products. There are 7 main things to keep in mind when considering tile:
Layout & Shapes
A creative layout will add that extra flare to a more neutral tile design. We’ll help you choose the perfect combinations to make the most impact in your home. There are many different types of tile layouts available at A World of Tile, you’ll be sure to find the perfect match for you! Visit our website for a complete list of tile layout patterns available.
Traditional square tile is always a great choice with infinite modifications, however the tile industry is buzzing over new ways to use new and increasingly popular rectangular (or “subway”) tiles. Subway tiles are a great way to achieve a unique look in your home. Come in to A World of Tile and we’ll help you figure out which shape works best for you.
Tiles come in a variety of sizes, from extremely small to very large. From 1”x1” to 20”x20” there’s a tile size that is perfect for your project. The smallest designs serve as intriguing accents and the largest tiles artistically live up to their size. Think your room is too small for 20”x20” tile? Maybe not. Is it more than three tiles wide? Let the project consultants at A World of Tile discuss the possibilities.
When choosing tile (or any other type of accent for our home) it’s easy to lean towards our favorite colors. However, there are other things to ponder. For example, how do you want to feel when you walk into the room? Consider the following: warm vs. cool, bold vs. neutral and monochromatic vs. multi-hued. However, don’t feel overwhelmed! Contact the project consultants at a World of tile for assistance.
Do you want to accomplish a clean look or something more rugged? The texture of your tile will make all the difference. For a clean look, choose a smooth-textured design and for a rustic-feel choose a more textured tile. When considering tile textures, think about its functionality. Bathroom tiles might need to have some texture to avoid slippery-when-wet usage, but a living room can easily handle a smooth surface.
For a cool, brighter look consider a shiny finish. Want a warmer feel? Choose matte. However, the most technological advancement to come along in the last 10 years is glazing. It can be impossible to tell the difference between tile and natural stone. Come in to A World of Tile and see the variety of tile styles available—some not found in any other store.
