Add a Little Glamour With Chevron Floor Tile
In the famous words of Carrie Bradshaw…“Hellooo lover.”
Chevron floor tile was one of my first flooring loves. Still is. I would happily give up my hardwood and plain porcelain in a half of a heartbeat for this gorgeous pattern. It just exudes glamour. And if you haven’t noticed, I am drawn to all things glamorous.
Perhaps it’s because I’ve always kind of thought I should have been brought up in Paris or lived during Hollywood’s Golden Age (helloooo Hollywood Regency decor…post on that to come!).
Who needs boring hardwood or plain porcelain tile when you have these to play with??
Design hint: As I’ve previously stated in my post laying out 3 steps to planning your kitchen, the foolproof trick to designing a space is choosing one focal point and building around that. While the patterns with all one stone still leave a lot of design options to work with (i.e. Walker Zanger’s “Helsinki” version), others with a lot of color and movement would generally need to be the centerpiece of the design (i.e. the following design).
PS: I couldn’t, for the life of me, find the source of the tile pictured below. If anyone knows who the manufacturer is, PLEASE let me know in the comments section so I can credit it appropriately!
Notice how when using the higher-contrast Chevron pattern, the tile really pops when the rest of the features in the room are left quite simple: solid-colored Caesarstone counter, large-scale plain wall tiles, and a mirror that takes up almost an entire wall.
With the Walker Zanger version, design options are left much more open. It’s fun because it can be played up as more traditional with some antique store finds, but with some bright accent colors could be given a very modern vibe.
What do you think? Would you rock the Chevron pattern? If so, where would you use it?
