Tiles on the floor
Bye bye boring carpet! Starting in the 80s, it seemed like the beige and wood on wood trends were going to stay forever. With all the new and improvement tile selections out there, you can breathe new life into the homes of your clients.
Floors are able to come alive with a tile print that will draw anyone’s eye to its uniqueness. Color tiles and using multiple tiles in a home are ways to be even more eccentric. They will help every floor plan by adding character and your own spin to the mix.
An eye for Encaustic
Pattern tile has entered a new era of design. Today’s looks are inspired by century-old encaustic tile that comes from all over the world like Turkey, Spain and France. These tiles are low maintenance and stand out with flower designs, recognizable prints, and classic charm. Adding a classic feel to your modern home will blend centuries together in a beautiful way.
