Mix Marble + Wood

Tile rugs are not limited to spa bathrooms and chef’s kitchens, friends. Bring the same high-style details into your living space or hallway designs, by incorporating hardwood floors. This ultra-glamorous inlaid rug was created using a mix of matte oak floors and luxe, marble insets.

High-Shine Herringbone

Let herringbone lead the way! Create a (stylish!) sense of direction in your home with a herringbone tile rug. Not only does the beloved, broken zig-zag pattern add tons of texture to tile floors, but it creates points that literally usher guests through the entryway, inviting them into the rest of your home.

Ornate Mosaic

All it takes is a lift of a leg or a slash of cabernet to ruin your prized (pricey!) Persian rug. Create an ornate, tile mosaic in your tile floor for the same grand effect, without living in a state of perpetual stress over splashes and spills. This luxurious design is incredibly detailed, boasting swirling foliage and blooms galore.
