When it comes to commercial flooring trends, the styles and options available are nearly endless. But regardless of the look you want, It’s essential that the performance characteristics of the flooring you choose meet the requirements of demanding commercial environments. Porcelain tile is one of the most durable, easy-to-maintain, and cost-efficient (in the long run) of all the flooring materials available. And it’s also green because it’s sustainable and contributes to superior indoor air quality (no VOCs). These are the reasons porcelain tile has become the material of choice for hotels, restaurants, healthcare facilities, educational facilities, office spaces, and many other non-residential environments. But what about the look? Tile for commercial spaces is no longer just about functionality. Modern designers today also want the flooring they specify to deliver on style. Floor tile is now regarded as a beautiful design element that can enhance a comfortable and inviting environment in any type of commercial space. Here’s a look at what’s trending in floor tile for commercial interiors.
Wood Look Tiles
Innovating design teams are integrating the feeling of a “home” aesthetic into their commercial projects. Also called “resimercial,” this type of design is known as the marriage of commercial durability with a residential feel. From polished to reclaimed and weathered looks, wood look tiles are often the answer to inject warmth and create a homey vibe into commercial spaces.
Here, our new Versailles masterfully replicates centuries-old parquet in a new range featuring modern planks, criss-cross, and inlay designs.
Our Distressed wood look collection brings authenticity to modern, urban settings. This line is available as generously sized 8″ x 36″ planks in four reclaimed timber hues.
LOFT by GIO offers the charm and warmth of wood with a truly modernistic look. Our Loft collection is available exclusively in a large 8″ x 48″ plank size in a contemporary color palette.
Floors take the limelight in patterned tiles in a range of styles from vintage to playful and modern. Intricate tile designs are on the rise with mixed prints and pattern-on-pattern styles playing big parts in both residential and commercial design.
This cheerful Color Mix Set from our Vintage collection brings on a nostalgic vibe to infuse spaces with a retro and elegantly olden look.
The big geometric pattern of our 24″ x24″ Blocks Infinity has a playfully modern look. These big-format tiles are available in a range of soothing, organic colors.
Large commercial spaces (think high-end retail or hotel lobbies) covered in marble are beautiful and luxurious looking, but real marble can become cost prohibitive and the maintenance is not simple. Porcelain tile that mimics marble looks is a great option instead of the costlier natural stone. The elegant look of marble with the convenience and durability of porcelain is the perfect combo for commercial spaces.
The lifelike marble look of our large format GIO_Thin 5.5 in “Statuary” is a beautiful and smart alternative to the real thing in this retail space.
The classic look of premium Italian Calacatta marble is authentically interpreted in porcelain in our Calacatta collection.
