Technological advancements have catapulted tiles into the world of making any look possible. Do you love the look of timber hard wood floors?

No more dog or cats scratching the floors while bolting for the door, or nervously welcoming a visitor wearing stiletto shoes.
Slabs of luxurious marble or stone are not only heavy from the hip pocket, but also heavy in reality.

I like to go with a dark shade tile that draws the eye upwards and out, which is something that can be achieved with penny rounds, decorative, or large format and slab tiles. My fave go-tos are timber look tiles though, as you can run them from your front porch right through to your backyard pool to create a truly indoor-out living space, which is perfect for Australian living.
For the trend-savvy, terrazzo tiles are another timeless and impactful option. They’re delicate yet playful and blend beautifully into trending shades like blush pink, and organic blues or greens. Plus. for creating zones between the kitchen and living or hallway and bathroom, terrazzo is a great way to add complexity to your overall design narrative.
If you're thinking of tiling a floor in a wet area, you should also definitely look at textured tiles to make sure you have enough slip resistance.
