We’re all managing a little differently nowadays. Maybe you’ve spent too much time looking at that old entryway flooring. Sure it’s holding up well, and it’s easy to keep clean, but it was already in the house when you bought it, and it might be time for change. Tile flooring is the perfect solution for beautifying high traffic areas of your home. Here are some ideas for using tile in your Bloomington home.

Border Tile

A great way to add some character to any room is border tile. Using a contrasting tile to your main flooring draws the eye to the center of the room and adds a dynamic element to the space. Border tiles are also excellent for marking divisions or sections in a room, as well as marking transitions from room to room.

Mosaic Patterns

Elegant patterns, intriguing designs, and bold shapes can make a statement in any room. Consider a design that makes use of shaped tiles to create an accent tile “rug” that is interesting and durable, or get creative with an abstract pattern. Tile chevrons work well to stretch a room and make it seem larger and longer. Whatever pattern you choose, installation by our experts at Floor Coverings International® of Bloomington is quick, simple, and easy.


Everyone knows first impressions are important. Extending that thought to your home means placing more focus on your entryway. Set the tone for your home with elegant marble tiles, rugged slate tiles, or classic porcelain tiles. You could also opt for a wood-look tile. Whichever direction you choose, your guests will be impressed when they arrive. Tiles are also easy to keep clean with a broom and a dustpan, which makes for easy clean up when someone tracks in dirt and leaves.

Tile floors in the bedroom? It’s not as crazy as it sounds. Tile is an excellent flooring material for regions that experience a large range of temperatures throughout the year. Tile keeps the bedroom cool in the summer, and for chilly fall and winter days, consider an under-floor radiant heating system.
