Tile selections will make an undoubtedly big difference in your home. If you have a new build, renovation or are simply looking for a small spruce up in any space, take the time to visit your local Daltile showroom. The showroom designer, Jenn Wilson, and the entire Indianapolis Daltile team strive to keep the best and brightest trends on display to help make your design process cohesive. This spring, we are happy to share some trends you must keep in mind for your upcoming projects.

UNFINISHED EDGING Even by switching up the installation orientation of a simple subway tile, this end goal can be obtained. The edgy look of an unfinished edge will give the ultimate spunk and unique style you have seen in the design magazines. All shapes, sizes, curvatures, colors and grout can be used during this process – it just takes stepping outside the box to believe it will look great in your space. The “Illuminary in Icicle” by Daltile is a glass herringbone mosaic to check out for this installation method.

PATTERNED CEMENT TILES Also known as encaustic tile, these elegant and durable tiles have some history but are making the “what goes around, comes around” saying true once again. Back from circa 1930 to 1940 in America, we are seeing these tiles laid everywhere throughout the home. The color and pattern variations of Daltile’s “Quartetto” can meet anyone’s style and preference and it becomes another fun feature in your interior or exterior space.

MATTE FINISH Taking any simple or intricate tile shape and selecting a matte finish will automatically place the focus on the tile shape and color rather than the shininess factor. It’s a simple and usually affordable way to bring simplicity into the room. Daltile has an array of matte finish tiles – the “Rittenhouse Square” being a designer classic go-to.

Tile can be an investment in any home, but Daltile is there to help every step of the way. Make an appointment to begin your selections by calling the showroom at 317-841-0883 or visiting them online at
