The many variations of tones and textures are endless when using tile to decor your home. Black tile, in particular, will give any room a  dramatic look of elegance.

Choosing a shiny tile over a flat matt tile for the bathroom stall will look exquisite under natural light bouncing off the walls. Do consider brass fixtures and not just chrome. The brass gives a warmer contrast.

What Type of Tile is Best For Each Room?

Tile floors will need extra care depending on the type of tile used. The beauty of them is certainly worth the extra care.

Entrance Way- Slip Resistance Slate

If you are adding tile to your entrance way, consider slip resistant slate. It helps prevent slips and falls for those coming in from the rain and inclement weather. Using dark grout looks great with dark tile and just hides the look of dirt 100 percent.

Kitchen-Stain Resistant Porcelain 

Stain resistant- glazed porcelain is easy to clean, less porous and more resistant to water. They come in a wide variety of styles for indoor and outdoor use. The pros always recommend a darker shade for grout, so black or gray hues are ideal as stains will not show as much, if at all. This tile is also more scratch resistant making it a great choice for high-traffic areas like the kitchen and dining areas, and the family room. Porcelain tile is also fire proof and can last for decades.

Porcelain tiles color runs all the way through the tile, rather as they are called full-body tiles. When color is completely throughout the tile, they don’t show wear, making them a consideration for commercial applications.

Small tiles known as hex tiles create an inviting look to a shower stall. To prevent showing of dirt use black grout with a matt black tile for a bathroom or kitchen floor. The black grout can make it even more dramatic.

Bathroom-Mosaic Tile

If you are placing the tile in a bathroom, small mosaic tile is an excellent option. They come in 12X12  lightweight sheets, which makes for an easy install.  In the bathroom, where more water usually gets on the floor, it is one of the best choices as the grout lines are tighter and the floor has more traction.

For shower stalls, the tiles that give a luxurious look consider glass tiles. While these tiles are more expensive, glass tiles are more water and mildew resistant because they are not as porous.  You can also get more creative with the placement of the tile, creating endless color combinations and designs.

The only disadvantage is the price, which is about $7.00 per square foot. It’s advised to hire an expert on the installation of glass mosaic tile. Repairs can also be costly, but if this fits your budget, it is a great choice to increase the beauty of your home.

Travertine Tile

Oversized Travertine tile is best suited for large spaces such as a living room or dining room and gives a more dramatic effect to the room. They can also be used throughout the home and they look spectacular all throughout a ranch style home. If you live in a colder climate, talk to your installer about radiant floor heating. They are ideal for hotter climates as they give a cool touch to the foot.

Tiles have ratings.When shopping for tile it is advisable to be familiar with the ratings so you can know what to expect from your purchase.
