These days, flooring is all about creativity! If you have an eye for design, you'll love what you see at the tile store.
They come in all shapes and sizes, including planks of all sizes. They can be used for a wood or stone look, such as the Marble Attache Calacatta by Daltile.
The miracle of Inkjet Technology
In the not-so-distant past, tile patterns were created by hand. Unfortunately, this was a time-consuming and often inaccurate process.
Inkjet is similar to a computer printer. It can spew as many as four colors simultaneously.
The result is a vibrant, true-to-life design echo of natural materials. Today, any floor tile has intricate decorative patterns, knots, raised grains, swirls, textures, and veining/color variations.
While many looks can be accomplished with ceramic or porcelain, the latter is sometimes preferred. It's a large format, so there are fewer visual interruptions, i.e., seams.
Porcelain can look like wood, stone, leather, and fabric. Check out Botanica Wood Plank Porcelain Tile by MSI.
Porcelain can be used either glazed or unglazed. When unglazed, it's called through-body, where the color extends from top to bottom. Through-body means that glazing is closely matched to the bisque.
Chips and scratches won't be visible, and your floor will always look like it just came out of the tile shop.
It's also ultra-durable and non-absorbent. So if you plan to install it in the kitchen or other high-traffic areas, porcelain is the choice for you.
Have fun with unique arrangements!
Planks aren't just for wood and stone. Mix and match planks and squares to create pinwheels: hopscotch, grids, corridor, tic tac, or basket weave patterns.
