Tile floors are popular for a lot reasons. They're easy to clean. They're durable. And, especially in Florida, they keep things cool.

 

Unfortunately, a lot of the tile that comes standard in Florida homes isn't all that attractive. You'll see a lot of rooms that look like these:

 

 

But tile doesn't have to be ugly. This home featured in Elle Decor shows tile can be a beautiful and functional alternative to wood floors or carpet.

 

The tile in the living room adds the visual interest and color of an area rug. Picking a pattern like this might seem like a commitment, but picture how different this room would look with navy walls or a stark white. A quick change of accessories could give the tile a whole different vibe.

 

 

The bold chevron pattern in the kitchen and hallway adds a cheery touch.

 

 

In the family room/office, the patterned tile makes white furniture pop. The homeowners went with a purple and turquoise pattern, but for those that are color shy, a black and white pattern would be just as pretty but a little more neutral.

 

 

Continuing the trend in the bathroom, these hexagonal tiles mimic wainscoting along the walls, making the bathroom seem bigger than it is.

 

 

 

 

The bedrooms are arguably the best part of the whole home. The tiles provide the look of a patterned carpet while being more durable in the long run. Because it's nice to get out of bed to something soft, the homeowners added a fluffy sheepskin rug so the cold tile isn't such a harsh adjustment in the morning.

You can check out the whole Elle Decor article here. While wood floors and carpet remain popular, tile can add a lot of punch to your home, making it easier to decorate your space.

I don't know about your entryway, but the space can end up a dumping ground for mail, jackets, shoes and dog leashes. Unfortunately, it's the first thing someone sees when they come into your home. Entryways can be an afterthought, especially if yours isn't technically its own room. But there are easy changes that can make your entry beautiful.


Start with the door. This chevron wood beauty adds a relaxed California vibe before you even set foot inside. Wouldn't you love to come home to this every day?

 

 

 

 

Or just add a coat of paint.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Moving inside, why not add a bold wallpaper?

Painting the trim black and adding moulding and millwork lends an air of sophistication.

 

 

 

 

 

Or maybe you have room for a little area where you can sit and put your shoes on before rushing out the door.

 

 

 

 

Don't overlook your entryway area when making changes to your home. It's an easy place to make an impact. Think of it as making a good first impression on visitors to your home, whether it's family, friends, your mailman or the occasional Girl Scout selling cookies. Plus, it'll make you smile every time you come and go.
