If you haven’t checked out tile recently, prepare to fall in love. While some of the most popular tile styles are tried and true and classic, there’s often a twist to bring them a fresh perspective. At St. Louis Tile, we appreciate all styles of tile—and our vast showroom is chocked full of choices.
We have bold, large-scale tiles, wood-look porcelain, hand-painted and distressed vintage tiles, movement-filled marble classics, and more. You’ll be surprised by the vast selection of options that can elevate your tile project beyond your imagination. Check out these Top 10 Styles for 2019 and start dreaming!
Wood-look tile is #1 on our list. Partly because of its versatility—it looks great in every room, floors or walls—wood-look tile continues to grow in popularity. These tiles are fast becoming a classic that will withstand the test of time. Providing the warmth of wood without the upkeep, they save trees and homeowners with kids and pets praise its scratch-and water-resistant qualities. Use these oak or driftwood-inspired tiles on floors and walls, both indoors and outdoors. Colors range from cool grays to pale oaks to deeper shades of mahogany. Who doesn’t love the look and warmth of wood?
Vintage is everywhere, even in tile, and it’s a beautiful thing. Think distressed, old world, handmade and even hand painted tiles that stir the imagination and bring a lovely “worn” look to any space. Vintage tiles feel a bit like slipping into a comfortable old shirt that’s faded over time. You’ll get different impressions from Italian tile versus French tile and coastal colors versus natural stone. Mix vintage tiles into your kitchen, bath, or even a well-loved she-shed to bring the rustic ambience you’re craving. Wherever you put them, vintage tiles are, quite simply, good for the soul.
Evoking the feeling of the ocean and shore, coastal tiles range from hand painted seafoam shades to beachy blues and greens to the palest shades of sand. They’re often seen in glass tiles, but you’ll love the coastal look in fish scale tiles too. Give a beachy spa-look to your bath or powder room or create a vanity area in your master suite. Installing coastal tiles evokes true relaxation.
Stone tile, always en vogue, has some eye-catching evolutions for your personal space. Classic marble and onyx become even more breathtaking through veining. In essence, this gives the stone movement. Your eye can’t help but dance around the space. Oversized tiles are also in demand—48 x 48, 24 x 48, and even 30 x 60. No matter the size or design style of your home, marble and other stone tile always ups the swank factor.
Suitable for bathrooms and kitchens—floors and walls and backsplashes—this delightful honeycomb, or hexagon, shape is everywhere. Mix it with vintage French or Italian tiles. Or vary the look by combining shiny and matte sheens. Feel free to go a little hexagon crazy! At St. Louis Tile, we heart the honeycomb.
Reminiscent of patchwork quilts, patchwork tile conjures extra coziness into your home. Available in fun and vibrant colors, simple two-color designs, as well as aged neutrals in shades of blues, blacks and grays, there’s a little something for everyone in patchwork tile. Look for French Country, botanicals, and assorted designs of all kinds.
French Tile & Italian Tile
From terra cotta tiles in shades of sunset to handmade French or Italian tiles, enhance your home with some old-world warmth. You’ll find vibrant and muted shades, as well as hand painted designs for a look that’s distinctly European. Escape to the South of France or Italian wine country in your own kitchen or bath.
Geometric & Patterned Tile
Plaid? Check. Cubes and rhombuses and triangles—as well as all sorts of other geometric terms we’ve forgotten? Check. Many geometric tiles create a magical combination of shapes and it’s spectacular to see. For modern, contemporary and even traditional spaces, this look transcends design styles. Also, check out all the patterns—including plaid! Penny tiles are a wonderful option, too. So many wonderful choices, you’ll be amazed.
Great for spaces that get wet, luxury vinyl tile is just that—luxurious. Softer and easier to install than traditional tile, luxury vinyl tile is the DIY go to. Available in long planks that mimic real wood or stone patterns in colors that work with any design style, luxury vinyl tile is an affordable “luxury” for your entryway, basement, bathroom––pretty much anywhere.
