When building and renovating homes, there comes a time when every builder or homeowner needs to make tile decisions. Tile offers both style and function in endless varieties… which can make your decision difficult!

One question we often get is “what’s trendy and what’s timeless?” when it comes to tile styles. And it’s a great question! After working with tile for over 25 years, our team has seen timeless tile styles that never go out of style and trendy tile styles that may come and go. Let’s break down these different tile styles and discover which is a perfect fit for your home!

Timeless Tile Style

Timeless tiles withstand the test of time, making them the perfect tile style selection for home resales and economic value. 

Some tile styles that never go out of style include light subway tile, black slate tile, calcutta marble, and white hexagon tile. These tile options can also be easier on the wallet because the timeless style will never need to be replaced in order to keep up with trends. 

Keep in mind that if you are planning to sell your home someday, timeless tile makes the resale of a home easier as the tile style is widely admired by homeowners of all interior design tastes. 

If a home resale is in your future or you’re looking for a more budget-friendly tile style, timeless tile is the perfect selection for your home!

Trendy Tile Style

Tile is an element that allows personal taste to be introduced to a home, so this is where trendy tile styles come into play! 

There are a wide variety of trendy tile styles, including bright, patterned, and bold accent tiles. While trendy tile is fun and playful, it risks becoming dated. If you are ready to experiment with trendy tile designs, accent tile can be a budget-friendly option to incorporate interesting tile without committing to a complete hard surface overhaul. If you love a fresh tile trend, keep in mind that you may need to keep room in your budget to replace the tile if the style one day no longer fits your taste. 

While trendy tile always risks becoming dated, accent tile is a certain way to bring playful elements into your home that add character and unique touch!
