Latest tile flooring trends

If you're installing a tile floor, your material choices range from budget-friendly standard-sized and solid-colored ceramic to one-of-a-kind natural stones. The waterproof tiles, often placed in kitchens and bathrooms, are usually glazed or sealed since most materials are porous. White Oak Flooring and Design is a tile store in Braselton, Georgia that offers a large selection of all three types of tile, including one of the 'hottest' products, wood look tile.


Plank-like wood look tiles provide an upscale look, and the material is ideal for a moisture-prone space. Porcelain is the most durable type of tile material available. While ceramic is porous, porcelain is naturally waterproof. Both materials are made of clay. But ceramic is made of a coarser clay, and it is fired in the kiln at a lower temperature. As a result, tiles tend to be solid-colored. In contrast, porcelain is available in a large selection of both bright and subdued designs.

Natural stones

Like ceramic and porcelain, natural stones are excellent heat conductors. Therefore, all three materials pair very well with a radiant heat system. With one of these systems, you can have warmth underfoot on chilly days and comfortable coolness on hot days. Marble, slate, granite, and travertine are popular stones. Choose a large format or octagon tiles or combine mosaic tiles with your favorite tile to create a unique look for the trendiest look.
