It’s often vital to select materials for your tile flooring that have the perception of texture. Textured tiles add visual appeal and tactile feeling underfoot, especially in wet rooms like the bath, where ceramic tiles can get slippery; textures also enhance the traction or grip.

Our professionals can help you select the right one when shopping for tile flooring in Sacramento, CA. We carry brands such as Emser Tile, American Olean, MSI, Porcelanosa, and Surface Art. Meanwhile, here are some you might consider.

Slate: bringing the outdoors in

Right now, rustic design is all the rage, and neutral earth tones are the go-to hues. Slate is a fine-grained stone, split into thin, smooth layers (called foliation) and split into fine pieces. The color palette ranges from gray-blue to gray, green, purple, copper, pink, red, and brown combinations.

Mosaics: trending for bathroom floors

These are the tiny, often glass-coated, highly decorative, pebble-like ceramics. These durable and mold/mildew pieces were once used mainly as accents, but they are now used for bathroom floors, as much for their unique style as their non-slippery surfaces resulting from the many grout lines.

Wood-look porcelain: the beauty of wood with the functionality

Because of a new technology called Inkjet, intricate patterns can be made with tile designed to feel like genuine wood with raised grains and grooves.

Others include

While metal and stacked stone add a distinctive look and feel, also consider the tumbled stone finish. Used often for limestone and travertine, with rounded, pitted corners, this gives the title a worn and antique look with somewhat rounded corners and borders with pits and holes.
