Cool Tile from Westside Tile & Stone
With increasingly abundant tile options available in today’s marketplace, sustainable goods are becoming more sought out. While most trends are revolving around ceramic tiles, Carrara marble, or white-marble porcelain slabs, the bold colors and patterns that are starting to pop up are a welcome sight. The advantage of ceramic tile is the abundance of colors and shapes available. Since these tiles are being used in both traditional and contemporary installations, you can install them in unique patterns, such as chevron, herringbone, or staggered brick.
Carrara marble remains popular. Material comes in a variety of sizes, finishes, and mosaics that allow it to be used in all sorts of residential applications. The fashionable look of Carrara marble allows kitchens and bathrooms to take on both cool and warm tones that blend a variety of styles. The rise in use of Carrara marble has increased the number of porcelain tiles made to resemble it. The introduction of digital-print technology has allowed porcelain tiles to look exponentially better than before, with an ever-growing amount of variation found in real marble. These marble-looking tiles allow for easy maintenance without worry of staining or discoloration like with real marble. Porcelain slabs have taken the market by storm and are a perfect fit for showers. The advantage of porcelain slabs is not only the jaw-dropping effect of having large pieces of seamless tile in your shower, but also the cost advantage over real marble slabs. Porcelain slabs are extremely durable and can be cleaned very easily. With porcelain slabs taking over the market, we’re seeing a multitude of marble-looking and onyx-looking slabs that fit every style and need.
