Living Room: Large Format Tile
On-trend for 2019 is innovation at its finest, including the use of large format tile for various purposes.
According to Mar Esteve, director of marketing for TheSize Surfaces, a large format tile manufacturer, “With its 100-percent natural composition—and several exhaustive quality controls along the chain—Neolith is able to produce large format slabs, which means greater uniformity and continuity in finished spaces, easier handling and minimized joints for aesthetic and hygienic benefits.”
“Thanks to its slim surface, it allows contractors to transport more than double the amount of surface per container than with thicker products. Slimmer slabs also allow for Neolith to be directly applied onto existing surfaces. This saves contractors from costly tear-outs while reducing landfill waste.” It won’t always work, but sometimes you can successfully tile over old tile. Here’s how.

White mosaics, as well as black and white patterned ones, are on-trend right now. In 2019, a variety of shapes including small squares, herringbone, chevron and more will be seen everywhere.
“Many are opting for using the same white marble tile throughout the bathroom, but mixing up the shapes on the floors, walls and shower area,” notes flooring expert Debbie Gartner. “This keeps the space light and bright while providing visual intrigue by mixing up the shapes and textures.” Here’s how to remodel a bathroom with marble mosaic and limestone tile.
