Denver Wood Look Tile Bathroom Benefits


April 3, 2020

Bathroom upgrades may not only enhance the overall value of a property but being that these areas often receive daily use, modifications can also be extremely helpful to homeowners. While simply changing facilities - toilets, sinks, hardware, heads, etc. can make a difference, switching the flooring in a bathroom can also have an extremely positive impact. In an area typically limited to only certain types of flooring materials, advances in technology have greatly increased the opportunities for individuals to create precisely the specific look they hope to achieve.

The benefits of wood look porcelain tile are far ranging and extend beyond the typical living areas of a home. In comparison to natural wood, these new places where the tile allows for a natural wooden finish are filled with benefits and can even be more cost effective than installing original pieces, especially in areas prone to direct contact with an adverse component - water. Even before they are permanently placed, homeowners can get a feel for exactly how their space will look once a wood look porcelain tile is installed.     

Design
Designing a bathroom that is not only functional but also incorporates the other characteristics of a home can be tricky. Fortunately, due to the impact of wood look tile, getting any surface color or “board” component is easily attainable. Not only can these pieces match hardwoods from other areas of the property but an opportunity for increased interior design also becomes favorable.

Flow
For homes that already have natural hardwoods in place throughout other spaces, including the living room, bedrooms, hallways, etc. - maintaining the same flow throughout bathrooms can create a sense of connectivity throughout the entire residence. Being able to match existing wood floors with wood look tile while still being protected from potential water damage is a major benefit.

Resiliency
Not only can wood look tile be just as good if not better than the real thing, upkeep and general maintenance are much less of a hassle. Tile is extremely tough and resilient to water damage making it a wonderful option for homeowners in an area prevalent to water exposure.

Denver Marble Kitchen Countertops and Beyond


March 25, 2020

Installing natural stone countertops is one of the best upgrades homeowners can make to their existing kitchens. Not only do these materials often help to increase property value but they also serve to provide a sense of elegance, while significantly changing the overall look and feel of a room. No matter if you are switching out an island or changing every existing surface in the space, natural stone options can provide a lifetime of use with relatively little upkeep. 

Marble countertops, in particular, are a suitable option for numerous upgrades and these aren’t just limited to the countertop surfaces. There are other areas of your kitchen which could also benefit from installing new marble and given the variety of colors now readily available, there’s something out there for everyone. If you’re in the market for making a change that may not involve a complete remodel but can drastically improve your home’s value and the way you use the kitchen, then consider giving marble a try. 

Countertop

Backsplash

Another useful area for marble within the kitchen is as a backsplash. Serving to protect the walls just above countertop surfaces from potential food or water splatter, this space can also benefit from marble use. Installed in conjunction with the countertop surface or as a completely separate piece, there are marble backsplash options available for any homeowner.

Island

The current interior design trends of having a colorful kitchen island extends beyond the cabinetry and can also apply to the surface top material as well. In addition, waterfall countertops may also be utilized here to help give a more pronounced look of the marble over the course of an entire kitchen island.

Flooring

Marble surfaces also don’t have to be limited to the above ground components of a kitchen. Due to the flexibility of marble as a natural stone option - this material can also be incorporated into the flooring. Depending on personal preference of the homeowner, switching out some tile or laminate underfoot for new marble, may also be a way to add some flare to your existing space.

Denver Natural Stone Wood Look Tile Advantages


March 5, 2020

Updating your flooring surfaces is one of the best improvements homeowners can make to not only enhance the value of their property but also change its look, while installing something that will last for years into the future. No matter the room or area being addressed, moving from carpet to another material provides plenty of value, in addition to giving individuals multiple options for the color, look, feel, and style of their home. Whether you are inheriting existing surfaces through the purchase of a new property or switching out your own original selections, moving from carpet or vinyl to wood look tile has many advantages.

Flooring can be important when selling a home but can also have an impact on everyday use for those who inhabit it daily. Not only can upgrading the material significantly change the look of a space but depending on the surface selected, it may have other important impacts as well. Choosing wood look tile over other available options allows for property owners to reap the following benefits from their new choice.

Durability

Wood look tile flooring is one of the most durable surface options available. Unlike carpet and other materials which may show wear and tear in high traffic areas, these tile floors can withstand an enormous amount of use. Even hardwood floors will begin to show age through discoloration and other means over time but wood look tile remains the same from installation throughout the life of a floor.

Flexibility

The number of different options available for wall and floor tile designs is exponentially more varied than any other surface option. Not only can homeowners get precisely the color they are looking for but they can install with confidence knowing that it will not change over time. 

Availability

Wood look tiles can also be installed in areas where homeowners may have concerns about traditional hardwood floors. Both kitchens and bathrooms - two of the highest selling points of a home - are subject to moisture and water exposure. While this may increase the propensity of hardwoods to be damaged, individuals can rest easy knowing they have installed tile within these areas to achieve a similar look without damage concerns.

Versatility

Finally, wood look tile is extremely versatile, requiring significantly less upkeep. While both tile and hardwoods will last well into the future, the former still requires sanding, staining and routine maintenance to keep its new look. Tile, once installed, will maintain its luster for years with a simple sweep, dusting or vacuum on occasion.

Denver Natural Stone: Popular Countertop Trends for 2020


February 27, 2020

As the new year continues, often there are individuals who set goals either personally or related to other activities. These can often include home improvements and one area many people choose to upgrade when completing a remodeling project is their kitchen. Often, a time dated area of the home, there are a few distinct characteristics that have withstood the test of time but others are emerging as new trends and seem poised to work well into the future.

There are many options available for beautiful designer kitchens and remodels can focus on something as simple as replacing current countertops to rearranging the layout and replacing all existing fixtures and appliances. No matter your current goals for 2020, consider these specific trends should you decide to upgrade your countertop surfaces this year.

Natural Stone Selections


Installing natural selections (granite, quartz, martble, etc.) has been a trending topic for quite some time and seems to only be growing in popularity. While there has been a slight turn to other materials in lieu of granite, the stone options continue to offer existing benefits with a lifetime of quality use.

Character

The kitchen counter challenge can be exactly what type of material to utilize for the future because a natural stone selection will last a lifetime with proper upkeep. For this reason, determining if you wish to have veining lines present can be a detailed process. Essentially, it comes down to personal opinion but veining lines add character and are currently rising in popularity across the country.

Contrasting Colors

In the past most homes have utilized a similar color combination for their kitchens. While yellows and greens were utilized more during the 1970’s and 80’s, natural tones with stark white and black have recently become more commonplace. Even newer trends are to incorporate a natural, light color with a stark contrast. Utilized either with an island countertop opposite the other surfaces or even in different cabinets from one area to the next, a splash of color seems to be the popular opinion at the moment.
