Liven up your kitchen with a patterned floor. Ceramic tile comes in a variety of patterns, allowing you to make a statement that matches your personality. Whether it’s herringbone, chevron, or even geometric, adding a bit of flair to your kitchen floor really makes the space pop.
If you love the look of hardwood, and the functionality of tile, this trend is for you. It’s tile floors that look like hardwood, to give your kitchen the beautiful aesthetic you’re searching for—with the durability you need.
Hardwood lovers, rejoice! Rustic is new again. Rustic hardwood is showing up in today’s new designs, providing that modern farmhouse look. If this is the vibe you’re going for, those brushed textures add an extra element of richness to the floor. Plus, it’s worn look provides a richer, more durable finish and allows for a few blemishes as they age. New technology has advanced hardwood into a completely waterproof option for your kitchen!
