Concord, CA bathroom tileAre you planning an upcoming bathroom remodel? Tile can be an significant focal point or an integral unifying element in your décor. Floor Coverings International Concord offers the latest and greatest styles from leading brands, including Daltile. Consider the following seven tile ideas to create a unique, relaxing, and spa-like atmosphere in your Concord home’s bathroom!

1. Long Tiles to Broaden the Room

Plank-style tiles have become increasingly popular, and they can help make your bathroom appear longer. Run the tiles parallel to the longest length of the room to help create the illusion of a larger space.

2. Wood-Look Tiles

Solid hardwood floors are not recommended for bathrooms due to the natural tendency of wood to warp when exposed to moisture. However, you can get the warm and classic appeal of hardwood without the worry of water damage by installing wood-look tiles.

Today’s flooring technology allows tile to replicate almost any texture, look, or surface you can imagine. This allows for a range of new possibilities that weren’t available before, such as ceramic and porcelain tiles printed to look like wood. Consider using a vintage-style wood tile surface, and install a claw foot tub for throwback charm.

3. Natural Stone

While ceramic and porcelain continue to be some of the more affordable bathroom tile options, things are trending toward more natural looks. While natural stone tiles can be more expensive, they can also bring a tactile quality that’s warmer and more inviting than traditional ceramic tile.

Consider slate, limestone, travertine, marble, and other attractive natural stone options. Light, polished stone surfaces really open up a room and can help make even small bathroom spaces look expansive and appealing.

4. Heated Tiles

Tiles with a radiant heating system are another trend if you really want to pamper yourself. Never set foot on cold tiles again! This option works well with ceramic and porcelain tiles, as well as with natural stone like limestone and marble.

5. Bright Marble Flooring

Few tile types offer the feeling of luxury quite like marble flooring, which is why it’s no surprise it’s making a comeback in popularity. Light, bright marble tones reflect light and help to create the illusion of more space. However, darker marble tones are undeniably regal, especially when polished to shine with a high gloss.

6. Glass Tiles

Glossy colors or even slightly translucent glass tiles can brighten up your bathroom like few other materials. Glass tiles are often repurposed from other glass items, which makes them an eco-friendly choice.

7. Throwback Patterns

A variety of tile patterns from the past are available to add a bit of classic chic to your Concord bathroom’s floor. Consider using herringbone, chevrons, or a classic mosaic pattern to create an eye-catching motif. Hexagonal tiles can make for an even more interesting effect.

Why settle for ordinary when your bathroom can have a stylish or even spa-like look and feel? Use these seven trending tile ideas to help create a distinguished bathroom space where you’ll enjoy spending time.
