How Does Tile Make Your Home Look?

You may still be asking, “But what does tile actually do for my home compared to other options”? We’re glad you asked! Tile is sustainable, high-end, looks in-style (whichever style that may be that you’re keeping in mind!), it is trendy and gives a finished look. Alternative options to flooring, are harder to keep looking high-end and finished as they tend to scuff, scrape and show damage much more easily.

Tile can easily help accomplish the upscale, top of the line look you are aiming for in any part of your home. By mixing and matching colors, materials and patterns you will be able to create a beautifully unique look that will compliment any style and last as long as you desire!


Thinking of going modern? Try a sleek design with neutral colors. Go for fresh white and slate colors. Your tiled area will look clean, fresh and chic by just making subtle color changes. By using crisp and fresh looking colors you will be able to achieve the most up-scale look for your home.


Maybe you’re looking to go the traditional route with a timeless design. The possibilities for this look are endless! Try a classic mosaic that compliments any home or season. Looking for something even more classic? How about a natural stone tile or an elegant checkered print.


If modern or traditional looks aren’t quite your style, something southwestern may be just for you! Arizona is home to beautiful southwestern architecture and design, with colors and earth tones influencing alluring style all throughout the valley.

A southwestern look is the perfect accent to your outdoor area and pool. Using tile with an earthy tone combined with a beautiful deep turquoise will create a vibrant and fun space perfect for entertaining during the hot Arizona months.

Shabby Chic

If your home is newer and you are looking to keep that new home allure and appeal, a contemporary tile look may be just right for you. Contemporary tile looks clean and sophisticated, which is perfect for your first home!

Try using darker colors with unique cutting-edge designs that will make your home look sleek. This style of tile is perfect for entertaining. Whether it be a few friends over for cocktails or co-workers, your contemporary tile will be an elegant jaw-dropper and your guests will be wanting to come over again very soon!
