1. Penny Tiles
Hexagon mosaic tiles have made their way to “trend” status for home flooring in the past few years. Did you know they are a spin off of a trend that has been around for ages?
Penny tiles are like hexagon tiles, but they are circular and imitate stone more than tile. Penny tiles might look trendy due to the overshadow in recent years, but have been used in bathrooms and kitchens for more than a century. Their unique, yet understated, texture and style make them a timeless flooring choice for old and new homes.
2. Basic Tile
You can’t go wrong with a classic. Ceramic tile is a timeless, waterproof, durable flooring trend. It has been used in homes and businesses for over 200 years.
Basic tile doesn’t have to be boring. When you think of tile, square and rectangular shapes probably come to mind. Just because they are not unique in shape, doesn’t mean you can’t fashion them in an eye catching pattern. For centuries people have been laying regular tiles in herringbone and chevron patterns to add style to an otherwise basic floor. Tile is truly a timeless flooring option that can work in most any setting!
Vinyl is a man made material that has not only stood the test of time, it’s improved because of it. The general rule in styling your vinyl flooring is: keep it simple. Vinyl can be manufactured to look like almost any flooring you want, at an affordable price.
Our advice: Stay away from flashy patterns. What’s trendy now might be an eyesore in the next few decades.
Last but not least, hardwood flooring. It might not be 100% waterproof, it might send your head-spinning with all its variety. When it comes down to it, hardwood flooring has been a favorite for as long as people have lived in houses.
Most houses these days opt for hardwood floor for many reasons. It might be more high-maintenance than other options, but it’s natural beauty is worth the fuss. Hardwood floors accommodate many different styles of interior design. They are relatively easy to refinish and restore after years of use. For decades on all those home shows, hardwood has been referred to as a timeless flooring option.
