When repairing tile floors, you or the pro must ensure that the concrete holding the tile down is level with existing tiles, in addition to maintaining the existing pattern. The more complex this is, the more the repair will cost. Because tiles are laid one by one, a professional should be able to remove just a couple of tiles and replace them. For a simple repair of a few tiles in a floor, expect to pay about $100 in materials, depending on the amount of tiles as they are priced individually. Overall, with labor, this is a $300 to $600 job for an established, reputable business.
Dark Grout. As homeowners look to keep their tile looking clean and chic, many are turning to darker grout that stands out among lighter tile. This goes for the kitchen, bathroom and floor tile. Even though a darker grout will show less dirt and grime, you should still have it cleaned regularly, especially in the bathroom.
What’s Out In 2018. While many flooring options last over time, there are a few that are beginning to fade. "The previous trend for highly polished, flawless floors will continue to trend out in favor of rustic styles," Whalen said. "In fact, you’ll see more and more floors where no two planks look the same, particularly with hand scraped wood and wire brushed finishes also on the rise."
While hardwood floors have certainly come of age these past few years, tile flooring is still the most popular flooring option. With its versatile nature and natural looks in a kitchen or bathroom, it’s hard to imagine a home without decorative tile. Given its vast popularity, tile manufacturers have done their best to give homeowners as many options as possible. However, some present unique advantages, in price and function, that others don’t. Below, I will list the major types of tile flooring, as well as some of their characteristics, costs, advantages and disadvantages.
