For those who prefer a sleek design for their homes in 2019, long and narrow tiles will do the job.

Narrow tiles can also give you the option to mix-and-match by forming them together in a vertical and horizontal manner which can result in a visually appealing pattern.

Hardwood

New homeowners will love the sleekness that emanates from chocolate-colored floors. It is no surprise that many are looking for more hardwood tiles for sales at shops nearby in 2019. Their deep brown and earthy tones will give a certain amount of depth to any living room. You can either choose a wire-brushed tile or hand-scraped option for this where brush strokes or streaks are etched on the surface of the wood. Meanwhile, hand-scraped is a style that focuses more on natural wear. It is similar to wire-brushed types, only, there are no fixed shapes. It is eye-catching yet simple looking at the same time.
