It’s no secret, today’s buyer wants it all. But can a home still have low maintenance features AND style that appeals? You bet! Numerous tile options paired with smart design provide easy care that pack a dramatic punch in flooring, countertops, back splashes and more.
Potential purchasers are all about choices! They’re looking for the ability to truly customize their home. With the huge variety of tile options available now, today’s buyers can achieve practically any design aesthetic. From the warmth of wood look tile to the sleek sophistication of a marble look tile and even three dimensional tile, there’s no shortage of selections or design excitement. For example, faux wood tile is a great option for an airy, open floor plan and faux marble tile completes a spa-like bathroom. Many manufacturers even offer styles that have the flexibility to be installed indoors or outdoors, creating a seamless flow between the spaces.
Love for Low Maintenance
Tiles are a fabulous finish and offer a low maintenance option for any market. Large format tiles, exceeding the average 12”x12”, create an aesthetically pleasing look and provide easier maintenance because there are fewer grout lines. Additionally, installation is easier with larger tiles and they can be individually replaced if scratched, stained or cracked.
Along with the prospect of lower maintenance, possibilities such as faux wood and faux stone tiling produce lasting durability for areas such as floors, counters and backsplashes. Due to the softness of wood, scratching is inevitable. And with darker finishes these scratches tend to stand out. Tile creates a strong, sturdy surface that appeals to the wear and tear a buyer might expect in their home. Also, rather than using real marble, which is typically soft and porous, a faux marble tile creates a tough surface that is resilient to etching and stains that may come from red wine or hot pans. This is very important for those who love to entertain!
