Every year it seems that tiles get bigger, hardwood flooring gets wider and the patterns get larger. This is in part because people understand the long term cleaning issues of grout. Larger tiles equals less grout. Thus, more and more clients are looking for solid surfaces or larger tiles on counter, walls and flooring.
When it comes to hardwood flooring the trend is less about looking at the patterns created by the wood planks and more emphasis on the beauty of the wood itself.
The flooring industry has stepped up by creating larger format tile in countless styles, colors and shapes. It has also come out with wonderful selections of 6″, 7″ & 8″ and even wider planks of many species of hardwoods.
Because of the above trends we are seeing the laminate flooring, sheet vinyl and luxury vinyl plank producers following suit with the same larger format looks.
