Ceramic tile floor in Houston bedroom

We all know the benefits of tile flooring in your home: it’s highly durable, resistant to water, and available in a variety of beautiful designs. But aside from the typical places we find tile—bathroom floors, shower walls, kitchen floors, backsplashes, and so forth—you might not always think of other creative ways to use this versatile material around your Houston Heights area home. Today, our flooring experts at Floor Coverings International Houston Heights share a few alternative places to install tile in your home.


While your bedroom is not the first place you might think of installing tile, there are numerous reasons why you might reconsider. With the variety of designs and finishes available, large format ceramic or porcelain tiles can be used to create clean and modern designs. If you, like many homeowners, want your bedroom to exude warmth and comfort, know that many tile options can be installed on top of radiant heating, which you certainly can’t do with carpet!

Accent Walls

A great way to add a touch of design to your living room is by adding a tiled accent wall. Here, you can truly let your creativity flow by playing with a variety of colors and textures to add depth and intrigue to your space. In larger rooms with long walls, applying tile is a great way to visually break up open spaces. Accent walls are also a great place to bring beautiful hand painted tile and mosaics into your home! Just be sure to choose a tile that is suitable for walls and avoid floor tile that may be too heavy for the existing structure.


Although it’s not a space where we often spend large amounts of time, closets are a great place to install tile. Because we use closets for storage, it’s important to choose a flooring material that is long-lasting and that can withstand the heavier things we tend to store away. Another great reason to install tile in closets is cost. Thanks to closets’ smaller size, you can install a very durable tile floor at a very affordable price.
