Designer Brian Patrick Flynn transformed this contractor-grade bathroom into an elegant, classic space strictly using shades of black and white. White subway tile walls, black porcelain tile floors and an aged iron chandelier all enhance the room's timeless appeal.
As seen in the HGTV Dream Home 2012, carpet segues to glazed porcelain tile flooring in the guest bathroom, where a 7-foot, quartz-topped maple vanity offers undercounter storage drawers. The dark wood finish gives this bathroom a masculine feel.
For maximum accessibility, the designer of this contemporary bathroom installed a curb-less shower with a 60-inch turning radius, a fold-down seat and attractive grab bars. Beautiful slip-resistant porcelain tile floors add style and function throughout the space.
Since shiny black floor surfaces tend to draw attention to imperfections, large-scale, rectangular porcelain tiles featuring a dulled, chalky finish were used. In order to add contrast to the floor and highlight the lines of the tile, the contractor used white grout.
This light and bright bathroom features a double sink vanity with white wooden cabinets and a neutral Cambria countertop. Black tiles offer a stylish contrast to the gray walls, while porcelain tiles line the shower walls. LED lights are positioned on either side of the mirrors above the vanity.
This farmhouse kitchen feels open and airy with beautiful white cabinetry, porcelain-tiled flooring, stainless steel appliances and a neutral subway tile backsplash. Rustic barstools provide casual seating at the island, which functions as an eating area, preparation station and gathering spot.
This designated spot for homework and bills keeps clutter out of the kitchen. The built-in desk and upper cabinets provide plenty of storage for filing, art supplies and mail. A lantern pendant light and porcelain tile floors add polished style to the space.
The wood grain porcelain tile floors are soften by a natural fiber rug in the living room. Blue and white upholstered furniture plays into the coastal palette, while nautical elements –– the mounted marlin and anchor throw pillows –– crank the seaside theme up a notch.
A Walker Zanger porcelain tile floor in a honeycomb pattern embraces a stone-like palette that's echoed in the hallway and outdoor terrace beyond this powder room at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Hardware and lighting adds a luxe twist to the otherwise natural, bohemian vibe.
Steps away from the doorway to the outdoors, the lower level powder room at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase continues the look of the outside stone terrace with a Walker Zanger porcelain tile floor in a honeycomb pattern. The palette continues the look of stone, while hardware and lighting adds a luxe twist to the otherwise bohemian vibe.
The designers left the staircase and fieldstone planter in their original condition, but added a painted wood screen to separate the stairs from the lower-level family room and bedroom, the latter of which is now used as an office. Pushing out the entry door gave the foyer a bit more breathing room, and new porcelain tile flooring updated the look.
It's cold outside, but this room screams warm, fun and inviting. There’s radiant heating below the porcelain tile floor, and the vaulted ceiling has a skylight to brighten the space. The large-scale design of the colorful area rug anchors the cozy orange furnishings. Finally, the funky patterned pillows and striped table lamps add whimsy and style to this sunny room.
Statuario honed marble tile, which is actually porcelain, graces the shower walls. Tiny tile over the shower floor gives it a textured finish. An extra, moveable shower head is mounted next to the built in bench seat for ease and comfort.
The Bianca Carrara porcelain tile used for the guest bathroom floor resembles European marble, and creates a clean and elegant look. The durable and versatile tiles are easy to clean, and a great choice for this space with water.
This European-inspired kitchen features the latest in appliances. The Miele coffee center and wine refrigerator are the focal points and flank the sleek Poggenpohl cabinetry. The Swarovski crystal chandelier brings shine to the space, while the wood stools and wood-like porcelain tile flooring accents bring visual warmth. The final touch is LED lighting underneath the kitchen island that highlights the quartz waterfall countertop.
Gray walls create a lovely transition from the white angled ceiling to the white and gray marble floor tile. Tile extends up the wall to form a backsplash surrounding the oval bathtub. Natural light from the window bounces off the porcelain tub surface and glass shower walls.
