At Creative Homes, one of our favorite motivational quotes is “Go big or go home!”. Typically, this is said as a reflection of our core value, “Good isn’t good enough”. When we are selecting tile in the design studio, we are quite literally going BIG!
Typically, the largest tile that we have been able to select from is a 12x24”. This is an industry wide standard size that many homeowners love. With new manufacturing capabilities, the newest available size is a large scale 24x48” tile. This is quadruple the size of our favorite 12x24” go-to size! Our design studio is excited and inspired by this for a handful of reasons.
If you like to tour our model homes or search though interior design trends online, you might notice that interior designers are loving waterfall countertop edges, quartz backsplashes and quartz slabs as shower walls. When designing a bathroom or a kitchen, it is so fun to design around the beautiful movement of the veining in a stone look material. The dynamic patterning is what makes stone look materials so fun to embrace! Quartz countertops bring a natural and flowing pattern into your home that (until now) no other material does. We are loving the extra large scale porcelain tile for all the same reasons that we love a waterfall edge in the kitchen. This tile lets the gorgeous movement of the stone do all the talking!
An extra large scale porcelain like this is an unparalleled aesthetic. It truly does give such a high end feel to any design. Whether you have a super clean/contemporary style, or a classic/traditional style, a large scale tile like this feels high-fashion. The largeness of the tile gives a visually expansive effect to your space.
Below is a sneak-peek of the tile and finishes that we plan to use in the Owners Bath in our next model home! We are using the “Torano Dorado” color in a gloss finish on the bathroom floor and shower walls. We are so excited to see the mirroring gloss finish of the tile give a reflecting effect all over the bathroom.
While we predict that this tile will most commonly be used in a bathroom application, it can certainly be used in places like a mudroom floor, a fireplace, a wet bar backsplash or anywhere else your heart desires. We thank our partners at The Tile Shop for making sure that Creative Homes has amazing options like this. We have gloss, matte, light and dark options that offer so much variety for so many different uses. Are you inspired yet!? Go check out The Tile Shop and see which one is your favorite!
It has been four months since we have moved into our home and I cannot put into words how thankful we are that we built with Creative. They’re the type of company you feel like once you move in you want to invite over for dinner and drinks once a month! In conversation with other friends and family who have built new construction with other companies, I truly believe that Creative is unique in that!
We absolutely loved our new home from the first time we saw it, and have felt the same ever since moving in! From start to finish the entire process working with Creative Homes was smooth sailing. We couldn't be happier with our house or our home buying experience!
We had an exceptional experience with Creative Homes and would recommend them to anyone. Not only did we get a well-built home, but the customer service exceeded our expectations. From our first meeting, to well-after we closed on our new home, the Creative Homes team made us feel like we were family. We already know we want Creative Homes to build our next home (in many, many years)!
Wow! It's hard to know where to even start and I know I won't be able to list everything, but I have to try and tell you how we awesome we feel about the whole building process with Creative Homes and how much we truly love our new home. The process of building with Creative Homes was the most relaxing (sounds weird, but so true!) home building experience we have ever been through. The communication provided from the very start until the very end has been phenomenal. Not once during the whole process did we ever sit and wonder what was going on regarding our home. I honestly wish I could name everyone behind the scenes at Creative Homes who works so hard to make customers like us have such an awesome home building experience. This company has the standards and employees that all companies should take note of and follow the example of.
From the initial conversations and choosing our lot and floor plan, to our design meeting and the actual build itself Creative's team made us feel at ease and went above and beyond. We felt like they truly cared and looked out for our best interests.
