Longer Planks for Wood Looks

One of the trends in wood looking tile that is becoming prevalent is the longer style planks. The 6 inch by 24 inch is still around and being used. But more and more people are looking at putting the 32 inch, 36 inch, or 40 inch long planks down on the floor. The 32 inch and 36 inch planks tend to have the most success of the longer style of wood looking tile. With the longer size the variation and movement in the glaze can be seen more and give you a more realistic wood looking floor. Some of the factories are even varying the width of the wood looks. Manufacturing different wood looks in 6inch, 7 inch, 8 inch, and 9 inch in the 32 and 36 inch length.

Some of the designers, and our customers are using the varying width in the larger wood looking tiles together. Using two of the widths with the larger wood planks gives the wood looking tiles a even more realistic look than just the one size by itself.

When we add that with the high definition technology used by some of the factories we have a even wider variation and movement with the two widths and the larger size. Even using the digital printing technology the two various widths still gives the appearance of a very realistic wood looking floor.

Grey Tiles Las Vegas

 

Thrill Frost

Thrill Frost

One of the greatest fashion trends in flooring is grey. Grey tile has made a big splash in the Tile industry and in the Las Vegas area. One of the biggest trend is the 12×24 grey tiles. Even some of the more traditional looks done in grey and the 12×24 size lend themselves to a very modern look. Even the traditional marble look that you get with the Thrill Frost has a very modern look done in the grey and rectangle size. A very rich and classical look that looks very modern and contemporary floor when compared to the traditional square tiles, in the browns and beiges. That have dominated the market for so many years.

One of the newer looks that is becoming popular and is striking when done in the grey tones is the limestone look. A very modern look that can lend itself to any type of decor and can go with a more traditional style of home and can also make the transition to a more modern looking home.

Even wood looking tiles are coming out with more grey tones that lend a very modern look with the ever popular wood looks. Blending the two styles in new and interesting ways and creating even more possibilities for the more modern, or contemporary looking home to choose from.

Wood Looking Tile with Stairs in Mind

Lately everyone who seems to be looking for wood looks in tile seems to be doing at least one set of stairs. With Wood Looking tile if you are in search of making the tile look as realistic as possible and you do not want to make it look tacky or to go looking for some wood trim to try and match with your wood looking tile you need bullnose. A surface edge bullnose gives you a nice clean look that matches your tile and gives you a nice rounded edge that is simply perfect when you are going up your stairs. And with Florida Tile one of the benefits is that they make a bullnose with their wood looks. Making them in either a 3×24 or a 4×24 inch piece depending on the series you are looking at.

Now as you may go around town you will find that not all wood looks or other tiles come with a bullnose but Florida Tile makes a bullnose with all of their tiles and since they are based out of Louisville, Kentucky, worst case scenerio we can order it and have it within 7 days. In our minds at Designer Tile Plus this is wonderful becasue we are no longer trying to match or coordinate wood looking tiles with something else to go up stairs at all. Now all our customers have to do is pick the wood look they like and if it’s Florida Tile we use the bullnose that comes with it and go up the stairs.

Wood Looks

Legno Biondi

Wood Looks have been one of the more interesting things that everyone seems to be bringing in and installing now a days. Out of the many that we show and Stock at Designer Tile Plus. The Legno series seems to be one of the best not only in looks but also in installation. Legno is one of the unique wood looks in tile that actually comes in two different sizes. Using the two sizes together takes this wood look one step beyond the rest. Those contractors who come in and  install tile and wood have all remarked on the realistic look of this series when it is installed.

This is partly do to the use of HD technology that some of the tile factories have switched to. This change has allowed the variation from one tile to the next to increase dramatically. Instead of having a print on the tile appear every thirty or forty tiles. The pattern repeats itself once every 180 feet or more. With a distance over half a football field away one can see how someone could mistake this man made product with natural wood. Couple that with the variation in size if you choose to use the two sizes together and you have a floor tile that looks like a real wood floor
