Why Floor Tile?

Whether it’s an entryway, a mudroom or a busy family kitchen, floors throughout the home take a beating. That’s why it’s so important to have a floor that is durable and can take whatever your family throws at it. But since it’s going to last a long time, it also has to be beautiful. A tile floor will achieve both of these goals while reflecting your personal style. Since there are so many options, The Tile Shop’s experts can help you decide what material is the best for your family’s lifestyle.

The color possibilities for your tile floor are endless. Neutrals are always in style, and we offer a wide range of styles of tile in classic hues, like white, grey, beige, tan, greige, brown and black. However, more and more people are beginning to incorporate bright and bold colors into their designs as a reaction to white and grey reigning supreme for years. Distinguish your floor with a red, pink, blue, silver, green or any other color tile in the rainbow.

One of the best features of modern floor tiles is their ability to replicate other materials. Whether you want the look of a stone, wood or cement floor, there are tiles to achieve that style. Each material brings with it unique properties. The exquisite style of marble, the warmth of a porcelain wood look and the fun of a ceramic patterned tile only scratch the surface of the options available.

From large-format rectangles to charming little hexagons, shapes allow you to make your tiled floor truly your own. The different shapes also help determine the overall style of your space. A classic space may call for a wood-look plank floor tile while a modern farmhouse foyer benefits from a hexagonal floor tile. Get inspired to go beyond the basics with floor tile ideas.

Another way to add individuality to your floor tile is through patterns. You might be surprised how many unique patterns are possible with a simple rectangular shaped floor tile! Herringbone, straight stacked, 1/3 offset, brick lay…the options are endless and can really change the look of your installation. Mosaic tiles also offer ample patterns through different shapes like arabesque, penny round, stria, hexagons and more. The boldest take is to use a floor tile with a pattern printed on its surface. From geometric to romantic and from bold to subtle, there are countless ways to add excitement to your floor tile with patterns.
