One of the new and exciting things that seem to becoming the new popular thing for bathrooms is using the 12x24s on the bathroom walls. And one of the great things is that since we are working with Florida Tile they make trim pieces for all of their series. So any of the 12×24 size tiles by Florida Tile can be used to go up the walls. and if you are building a shower pan for a walk in shower Florida Tile also makes 2×2 that is also available in all of their series. Making it even easier when you are looking and considering remodeling your bathroom.

But should you go with one of the 12x24s that come from one of our other factories and they do not have a bullnose for that tile specificially what we could do is use a contrasting color to trim the tile out. Or what we could do is take a piece of the 12×12 marble or granite and cut it down to the size you would like and bullnose it so you can have a nice finished looking bathroom when it is done. It also can help give you a nice tie in with your bathroom counters.

But the nice thing is that with Florida Tile and a few of our other factories we buy from we stock the surface bullnose with the 12x24s, 18x18s, and 12x12s we do carry. Unfortunately, not all the factories we buy from make bullnose. But on the ones that do we did bring in the trim pieces for the tile.

Tile Designs

urbanite_23805_carbonWhen trying to make your home unique we always try for some kind of concept or design to use. Whether it is modern or traditional the look and feel of your house should make it a home to you. The endless amount of choices that are before you when you start can be intimidating.

When you decide on your flooring you should pick a general tone of color to help keep your home uni-formal. There are many homes that every room is a different tile and set differently. But if you keep the floor uni-formal in design and color the area will appear larger and more inviting. Even if you have small rooms such as bathrooms and laundry rooms keeping the floor with the same pattern and design from one area to the next can change the appearance of a small home to a large one. By choosing dark colors you will make the rooms appear to the eye smaller, and when you use light colors you will make the area appear larger than life. By using a mixture of both you will highlight and accent different areas to make your home truly unique. Come visit our showroom for even more ideas.

Coverings with Stone and Tile

One of the most common things we do at Designer Tile Plus is mix stone with tile. One of the main reasons we usually do that for is to create a focal point and to create a more richer and elegant look. When you look at your home and your neighbors homes, what do you see? You can see travertine, limestone, tile, wood, laminate, parquet, marble, and granite.  But do you see anyone mixing the two together in the floor? Probably not. I can see why you wouldn’t with woods, laminates, and parquet, but why not mix stone with porcelain and ceramic tile…

If your regular ceramic and porcelain tile are roughly the same thickness why not mix the two together? Just adding accents or inserts of stone into a ceramic and porcelain tile can add a little bit more depth and movement into a plain floor. It can also help tie everything together and give your home a more designer look. A nice tile pattern can do the same thing rather than the traditional straight lay or diagonal floor you see so much of. And even if you are, or if you want we can, just cutting down a stone to a like a 4×4 and inserting it every 20 or so tiles the look of your home can be truly unique.

If you are going with stone instead of tile instead of cutting up tile to insert into your stone floor a contrasting stone would look just perfect.

Flooring with Trim

When we are looking at floor tiles we are not usuallly thinking of what trim pieces may come with it. One of the Best things for having the Florida Tile line is that Florida Tile is based in the United States, but also that Florida Tile makes trim pieces with their tile. So when you have stairs that you would like to do with your floor, or if you would like to take your floor tile and put it on the wall, Florida Tile has the coordinating and matching trim pieces. Even on their wood looks. A handy thing to know when you are searching for your home.

It is one of the unfortunate of things when you are out searching for tile in Las Vegas that most of the tiles you see and find do not have matching trim pieces available. Trim pieces do not sound super important

until you have a step down or a couple stairs to do and having sharp edges is not something you want at all.

So wouldn’t it be nice to have matching trim pieces to go with your flooring instead of searching and trying to come close or matching the tone of the tile but not the look. You may not need trim pieces for everywhere in your floor but is it not a nice thing to not have to worry about that when you are choosing your flooring.

And don’t worry if you run short on your trim pieces, everything we bring in from Florida Tile we bring in the surface bullnose for, and if we run short we are only a week away from having more available for you.

Porcelain Tile Las Vegas

In Las Vegas all the rage is on porcelain tile. The range of pricing marketing porcelain tile is all over the place. You have the dollar porcelain tiles, you have the two dollar porcelain tile, and it goes on and on. When you are looking at porcelain tiles keep in mind there are differences in the quality of the of the glazing and application of the tile. What you are buying in tile is the glaze that is on the top of the tile. The subtle variation between one tile and the next. The crispness of the image. The finish of the tile.

Now the dollar porcelain tiles are wonderful but they do not tend to have a high variation from piece to piece and the finish tends to be flat.

When we look at the two dollar porcelain tiles we tend to see a lot more movement and  variation from one tile to the next.The finish tends to be not so much a flat finish as a satin finish, or if you want a high gloss finish. When you get to the three dollar porcelain tiles you see more variation and movement in the tile. The image on the tile is a much more crisper and vibrant than the two and one dollar porcelain tiles. If you want a rougher texture to the tile that is possible as well as a high gloss finish as well.

Porcelain tiles are beautiful and wonderful. And when you come in at Designer Tile Plus you will see porcelain tiles for every price range. And at Designer Tile Plus we have every color, and pattern that you could possibly want in your home.
