2019 Byrd Tile Trends

Salute to the Classic Tile

This article is going to cover some trending products for 2019.  However, we must first give a salute to the classic tile that has stood the test of time, trend and quality.  Classic tile such as a subway tile or a natural stone will always be at the top of the list.

#1 Trend:  Special Shaped Tile

Hexagon, penny round, arabesque, scallops and more, all hit as the #1 trend for 2019.  A special shape can be used anywhere and everywhere. Accent a room with a border inlay, framed inlay or tuck some into your shampoo niche.  You can even do an entire room in shapes!  Special shapes come in everything from ceramic to natural stone, so don’t be afraid of price, there is a wide range of pricing.  

#2 Trend: The Rustic Look

Rustic is still in the running!  From wall to floor, rustic tile gives a bold statement.  The feeling of being home.  Field tile, planks and your standard 12×24 are just the beginning of your rustic tile options.  

#3 Trend: LVT (aka Luxury Engineered Planks)

There are many reasons that LVT is on our short list.  Basically, it is affordable, durable and beautiful.  Here is our list of reasons why it is so great:

  1.  100% Waterproof
  2. Anti-Microbial Protection
  3. Install over almost any hard surface and conceal most minor sub-floor imperfections.
  4. Realistic wood look.
  5. Made with 100% recycled limestone, with 100% virgin PVC.  This composition makes it extremely durable.
  6. Can be installed in any room in the house.  Great for high traffic areas!
  7. Lifetime Limited Residential and 15 Year Light Commercial Warranty.

#4 Trend:  Marble ‘look’ Porcelain Tile

The look of marble is highly desired, but often times the cost is prohibitive.  One of our best sellers is this durable, low maintenance porcelain version.  Available in a variety of sizes! 

#5 Trend: Curb Less Shower Floors

With more of our aging population staying in their homes later in life, the curb less shower is the perfect choice for many bathroom remodels.  While there is an additional cost to the system and installation, the benefits by far outweigh the cost.  Even if you are young, a curb less shower is VERY attractive!
