If all you can imagine when you think of tile flooring is white squares laid out in a grid, you are missing out on all that tile has to offer. Tile is not only a very durable material, but it is also quite versatile as well. Consider, for example, these top five tile flooring trends for 2014.

Best 5 Tile Flooring Trends
1. Imprinted Natural Designs
Tile flooring is a great option for people who want the beauty of other flooring choices without the maintenance they require. Currently, homeowners are loving tile that has been printed to mimic hardwood flooring, marble and alabaster. Not only is tile flooring easier to maintain, but it is less expensive as well.

2. Industrial Designs
In addition to the natural earthy elements that are currently popular, industrial designs are finding more favor with homeowners as well. Tile flooring that imitates poured concrete or cement is a great way for homeowners to get the edgy, urban look they love.

3. Patterns and Textures
Why cover up your tile flooring with an area rug, when you can make the floor look like a beautiful area rug itself? Many homeowners are moving away from wall-to-wall tiles in a single color and opting to incorporate interesting patterns and textures instead. Mosaic styles and area rug styles are becoming increasingly popular.

4. Metallic Finishes
For those with lavish tastes, metallic finishes are a great way to add a little elegance and grandeur into their tile flooring. The metallic tiles and designs are generally used as accents, though making them the focal point isn't unheard of. Gold is often the color of choice.

5. Adhesive-free Technology
While the gold accents and marble designs may make it seem as though tile flooring is reserved for only the nicest of homes, homeowners everywhere are falling in love with tile flooring. Many manufacturers are producing interlocking tile options that don't require adhesive or grout--opening up the tile market to anyone and any floor.
