Flooring has a huge impact on both the functionality and aesthetic of your American Legend home. However, it is important to consider both before making your selection. Our Design Gallery can help you decide what will look and work best in your new home.
Here are some things to think about while finding inspiration for your tile flooring:
Not all materials are equally durable. You’ll want to choose something that can withstand the level of wear and tear in your home. Remember that natural stones can stain and patina over time. Marble can chip.
The room where you will install tile can help you decide. It’s important in the kitchen and in bathrooms to use a waterproof material that can withstand the pressure of foot traffic, like ceramic or porcelain.
Large floor tiles can make the room appear larger since there are less visible grout lines to break the pattern. Small tiles work best on the floor of a small space.
If you’re adding tile flooring to a room with a lot of moisture, like a kitchen or bathroom, textured or matte tiles are less slippery in comparison to smooth or shiny finishes that work best on a backsplash. Smooth stones offer a chic and sophisticated look, while a “rough cut” tile adds style and character to any room.
A grout color close to the tile will make the grout nearly invisible so the tile installation looks compact. A contrasting color will make individual tiles pop. It just depends what best complements your personal style!
