When choosing a flooring solution for your home, the hardest part is having so many great options in front of you. Hardwood offers a simple, timeless, and classic flooring option that looks great with almost any style of architecture or home interior design. Carpet, on the other hand, can feel incredibly comfortable and decadent. But if you’re looking for an easily maintained, modern, attractive flooring solution, tile is an excellent option.


At Brenner Floors in Minneapolis, we take pride in creating beautiful floors of all types for Twin Cities homeowners. In this post, we’ll talk about some of our favorite unexpected tile flooring solutions for Minnesota homes.


1.      Rustic tiles

There was a time when rustic flooring called to mind rural, country looks. But today’s rustic tiles are used to complement a range of looks, imbuing them with clean minimalism that is as chic as it is elegant. From the look of simple stone to tile floors that mimic wood, rustic tiles have come a long way through the years. Rustic flooring can look absolutely stunning when used in a simple, minimalist design as an industrial chic detail. It also pairs well with modern decor.


2.      Darker designs

Dark flooring options are a shortcut to elegance. Designers on home design shows are beginning to pair onyx, charcoal, and chocolate floor tiles with bold colors and earth tones alike. The darker floor creates a chic and luxurious backdrop for many home designs.


3.      Minimalist white

We love white floors because they stand out without trying. Stunning white tiles look clean and bold without overwhelming the look of your furniture or art. It can look ultra-modern or understated depending on the shade of white you decide on and looks fantastic when paired with a border or other decorative design details.


4.      Elegant patterns

Patterned floors are making a splash this year in hip urban lofts and suburban homes alike. They add detail and interest to a space and can be used to direct the eyes by creating a focal point within a room. They are perfect for busy homes where a good deal of foot traffic might otherwise require you to stay alert for the tiniest little spot.


5.      Focal points

Speaking of focal points, adding a unique design in the center of a space or another focal point can make a bold design statement. It can also be used to create natural spatial distinctions within an open plan room. An artistic element with vivid colors or a simple contrasting patterned space creates a stunning but stylish distinction when used in a main living space or dining area.
