How to Feature Porcelain Floor Tiles in Your Home

From the grain of rich hardwood to the glory of gorgeous stone, porcelain floor tiles can give you any look you want in any room. Easy to cut, easy to clean, and available in a variety of options, porcelain can be used everywhere in your home—even in places you probably never thought about before. Here are some inspirational ideas.

Bring the Beauty of Tuscany to the Family Room

The soft shading of beige and ivory marble isn't just for the bathroom. Use Tosca glazed porcelain tile to get the look of gorgeous Tuscany marble in your study, family room, or living room. The natural-looking color veins and shading variations echo the look of real Rapolano marble, but it's as easy to install as any other porcelain floor tile. That means the tiles can be cut and shaped to create any pattern you like, and can fit in any space. The tile's soft, neutral colors are a perfect balance for the large pieces of furniture you have in your community rooms.

Give Your Bedroom the Warmth of Rustic Wood

The enchanting look of hand-scraped, hand-oiled wood can be perfectly copied with porcelain floor tiles. The American Estates plank series features the artisanal look of handcrafted wood floors. These tiles are long-lasting and hard-wearing, and are made to stand firm against stains, freezing temperatures, and water. No special wood cleaners are needed to keep this rustic-looking, wood-look tile beautiful. It gives your bedroom that perfect "wow" statement that's not immediately followed by "that must be a lot of work to maintain."

Brighten Any Space with the Soothing Beauty of Satin

The satinlike beauty of old-world textiles is another style that can be hard to maintain if you don't have porcelain floor tiles. For instance, Lounge14 gives you the soft look of a textile, but in a contemporary material that's easy to work with. Using 3-D print technology, each of these tiles is styled with a subtle design pattern that pays tribute to classic design styles of the past—in a range of more modern color choices, of course.

Bring Urban Trendiness into Your Home

Fill your kitchen with the trendy look of industrialism and urban living, and you'll be able to create a modern space that wows your visitors. The clean lines and concrete look of Soho tile is inspired by the urban feel and trendy styles of New York City, where you can find the real Soho neighborhood. The urban look of these tiles is a perfect complement to bold splashes of color, soft fabrics, and rich woods.
