The Growing Trend for TilesPublished 11/07/2019It's official: the sale of flooring tiles is booming! Why have tiles become such a popular flooring choice?
There are several reasons why people are choosing tiles. The biggest reason is the versatility they offer.
We love this type of flooring as it's very durable and practical. This makes tiles perfect for kitchens and bathrooms, especially as they are water resistant and non-absorbent.
You can choose from a huge variety of materials and finishes, from soft carpet tiles to vinyl. In fact, 74% of stockists are selling more vinyl than five years ago. The finishes available are top quality, making tiles a practical and affordable choice whilst ensuring that your flooring looks great.
The Stone Finish
“Many people like the look of natural stone tiles, however they are put off by how hard they feel underfoot and how cold they are during the winter, ” explains Adam Wilson of Charles Wilson Carpets. “Flooring tiles can create the same look but with greater warmth, comfort and resilience.”
The Look of Wood
Choose from a wide choice of wooden finishes, perfect for a quieter alternative to wood itself and easy to keep clean.
The Comfort of Carpet
Carpet tiles are soft to walk on, easy to install and offer great design choices. These tiles are great for high footfall areas and absorbing sound. This means they are often favoured by landlords. “Carpet tiles give home owners the warmth and comfort of carpet whilst providing a flooring which is easy to install and cost effective to replace,” says Adam.
A distinct advantage is the wow factor you can easily create when designing the look of your room. Flooring tiles offer the best freedom and flexibility to incorporate colours, patterns and impact to your space. You really are spoilt for choice!
This ‘instant makeover’ is designed to withstand daily use. Whilst being stain-resistant, if needed you can just uplift a plank (if stuck down version used & non-click) to remove damaged areas.
“Flooring tiles have become hugely popular and the range available has grown enormously,” says Adam.
