Creating A Beautiful Home

3 Rooms Where Tiles Can Shine

by Serenity Harris

Tile is one of the most versatile materials available for use throughout the home. It can work in any room and comes in an enormous array of styles, colors, and even materials. Tile is often made up of natural stone, ceramic, or porcelain. It can also be found in a large range of price points and runs the gamut from extremely affordable to high-end and luxurious. Tile is most often used in the bathroom and kitchen, but it can also shine in other areas of the home. Here are three rooms where tile can really make an impact.

Home Office

The home office is one room that many homeowners neglect. However, working from home is becoming more common, with around 45 percent of Americans doing at least some work from home. A beautiful home office can make this easier. For homeowners looking to add color and interest, tile flooring may be just the thing. There are tiles available for any budget with options such as ceramic costing around $1.30 per square foot, while marble costs around $7.50 per square foot. Tile is durable and easy to clean which also makes a great choice for a busy home office.

Master Bedroom

While tile may be an obvious choice for a master bathroom, it can also be extended into the master bedroom in order to create a cohesive style. There are plenty of ways to bring tile into a bedroom. Flooring is an obvious choice, but tile can also be used to create an accent wall. The cost of tile installation for a wall is a little more expensive than tiling a floor. The overall price can vary greatly also, depending on the detail of the accent wall. Just one hour of labor for a mosaic glass tile wall can cost $38 to $50.

Living Room

Using tile in a living room is certainly not unusual, especially in warmer climates. However, there are more ways than ever to use tile in this space. Many homeowners like the look of wood but don't want to maintain it. Tile can be used anywhere in a living room where wood would typically be used. Wood-look tile is a great option for homeowners who want the look of wood with the versatility and durability of tile. This type of tiles runs anywhere from $3 to $15 per square foot. 

Tile is a great option for any room in a house. It works well in home offices, living rooms, and even master bedrooms. Not only does tile work well on the floor in these rooms, but it can also make for a great accent wall. Homeowners who want a lot of options in terms of style, color, and material should check out tile. Contact a company like Art Tile Co. Inc. for more information.
