Tile Showroom Materials

Accent tiles

If you’ve browsed new tile selections at the tile shops, stone showrooms or local big-box stores and can’t find anything you like, come to Element Design Build Remodel for some tile design inspiration. Our tile showroom is a great place to find a large array of quality tile and the best selection of marble, subway, natural stone, ceramic and glass tiles for tiling accent walls and floors. Our talented interior designers can help you find the perfect tile for your home improvement project.

When choosing floor tile materials, ensure you pick a material that offers adequate slip resistance, since many gloss tiles become especially slippery when wet. Other floor and wall tile tips:

  • Glass, porcelain and ceramic tile work exceptionally well for bathroom tile installations in showers because moisture doesn’t affect these materials as it does some tiles.
  • Travertine is great for bathroom tile floors because it’s naturally warm, so floors won’t feel as cold underfoot.
  • Terracotta and natural stone tiles are perfect for color and textures, but always confirm they have the right glaze finish to remain water-resistant.

Best Tile Design Ideas

Once you’ve chosen an appropriate tile material, it’s time to explore tile design ideas. A great tile design is an easy way to add interest to your bathroom or kitchen walls or floors. Accent tiles used as a kitchen backsplash pull double duty by protecting walls from cooking oils and splattered food while adding a lovely focal point. Let us help you create the perfect tile design to fit your home decor and personal style. Start with a few pointers:

  • Glossy ceramic or porcelain tiles suit dark spaces since these tiles reflect more light, as do tiles in lighter colors. 
  • Hex tiles offer a great option for decorating surfaces because they’re symmetrical and fit together precisely without any gaps. 
  • Mosaic tiles provide a unique, aesthetically pleasing accent wall or floor surface and you’ll find many different designs available, or you can get creative and design your own mosaic pattern. 

DIY or Professional Tile Installation

Tiles mounted on mesh sheets are easier for DIY projects, and installing individual tiles may be trickier than you realize. It can be difficult to lay tile evenly and create clean grout lines that are properly sealed to prevent staining. Cutting tiles to make them fit the area you’re covering requires special tools and techniques, careful measuring and patience to prevent cracking or breaking. Whether you choose a DIY or professional tile installation, we’ve got you covered.
