One of the advantages of working with tiles is that there are several designs and styles to choose from. You can practically opt for any style you choose, at long as it blends with the house’s overall theme and design. And with thousands of tile varieties and colors, sometimes your budget and your imagination is the only limitation.
Choosing which style can be a bit overwhelming. Mainly due to the heaps of designs and styles easily available in any tile store. To help you decide on which style to choose, here’s a brief guide of five most popular styles that you can try.
Nothing spells “home” better than traditional tile styling. Although misconstrued by many as outdated and perhaps even archaic, those who support this contention are mostly missing the point. The point is getting as much inspiration from the past.
Traditional style reflects the mood and tone set about by antique furnishings and floral prints, which are not really bad ideas for a home. When going for traditional styles, go for the old school patterns like florals and symbols. Take note that traditional styles are big with ornamental designs. And since traditional takes its roots from bricks, the look must somehow reflect its reddish, baked brick cousin.
Where traditional tiles are all about patterns and designs, modern styles are all about the lack or perhaps even the absence of these patterns. Modern styles almost always border on minimalism.
