- Narrow Wood-Look Design
- Keeping Grout to a Minimum
For the past few years, homeowners around the world have been hopping on the trend of minimalism and implementing it to their home decor and interior, and who can blame them? The concept is perfect for homes. When spaces are confronted with a minimalist interior, it instantly looks clean, reductive, neat, and bright. It strips away all of the visual clutter and grants you a stress-free and decluttered environment.
So, if you’re thinking of approaching this design for your spaces, there’s no better way to do it than by starting with minimalist flooring, since it is one of the first things that you see when you enter your home. Today, we’ll be reviewing some of the best tile flooring options you can choose from to flawlessly execute a minimalist home.
You probably think that tile exclusively holds intricate and ornamented designs, but that’s not the case. Nowadays, tiles boast simplistic patterns, shapes, and finishes that ideally complement the minimalist style. Not only can it make a statement, its features scream all the elements of minimalism: it is affordable, effortless to clean, has less upkeep, and is even more durable than other types of flooring.
So, what are you waiting for? Take a look at our guide below to see and learn how you can apply these various types of flooring styles, shapes, and finishes to achieve minimalist spaces:
Clean and Simple Marble-Look Tile
Nothing screams minimalism more than a clean white surface. However, an excessively washed out and white area can also make spaces look too dull and tedious.
White marble is a timeless classic. The 60×60 EG16 marble-look tile is a reliable choice if you want to approach a fresh and light look. This marble tile flaunts a luxurious yet simplistic facade. Its color and intricate vein pattern combination instantly give that white, clean look a personality. It additionally makes your spaces feel airy and open. It works best in bathrooms, entryways, and living rooms. Pair it with darker hued furniture or metal accents like brass and rose gold, and it will pull any room together beautifully!
Narrow Wood-Look Design
Want something unique? Through its visual appeal, contrast, and dimensions, you can achieve that minimalist design in your spaces with narrow wood-look tiles.
The line-heavy appearance of the 60×120 XPY61226F porcelain tile provides the impression of a wider and more extended area. When you place your tile flooring parallel to your walls, it produces a more lengthening outcome on the space – perfect for your hallways and entryways. On the other hand, when you lay it perpendicularly, areas appear wider.
The color of this tile is also more subdued and its clean and natural finish brings the appropriate amount of balance to minimalist spaces. It can also be placed where natural sunlight comes in, as the sunlight will emphasize its light and spacious interior.
Here’s another take on a minimalist design. This wood-look, narrow plank tile flooring is an ideal pick for this who want to incorporate more traditional interiors to their home. Since it is warm and deep-toned, it is best to pair it with white simple walls and furniture. Be careful not to match any of the decoration to the color of the flooring as it can cause it will look too heavy.
This can also be used to run diagonally to some of your home’s large architectural pieces, like your kitchen counters and islands. Its 18×122 measurement will immediately contribute more visual dimension and will highlight your interiors.
Keeping Grout to a Minimum
Grout can be used as a design feature in many other styles. But to achieve an ultimate minimalistic design, keep your grout to a minimum or you can also match the tile and grout color for a more seamless finish. It will make your rooms more spacious through its monumental look as it strips off visual distraction and allows a more seamless flooring.
