When building a new home, or remodeling an older one, homeowners have to make selections for their new flooring and tile. The task can be overwhelming with all the available options on the market today. Many homeowners are afraid to introduce color with those design features, as decorators typically recommend staying neutral.
At Performers Flooring & Design Gallery in Bloomingdale, Marketing Manager Lexie Psyhos takes a different approach. "I encourage our customers to not be afraid to incorporate color or a bold design into the more permanent aspects of their home," she explained. "The trend is to stay with the safer, more neutral colors, but I show what's available in case they're interested in adding some pops of color in their design space."
Psyhos doesn't push customers to select colors they wouldn't normally feel comfortable incorporating into their home. "I educate them about their options, including what's trending and what will last aesthetically," she added. "Cooler colors stay popular over time, and we have some really terrific ways to incorporate color into any size area. For example, I love a soft pink chevron tile for a daughter's bathroom."
Psyhos admits that it can be difficult to imagine how a room would look with flooring or tile that isn't standard. "Our vendors offer terrific imagery and resources so customers can visualize how a certain color would look in their home," she said. "We can incorporate color, for example, into hardwood or tile with a border in a single room. Right now, blues are very popular. Other fun ideas include adding a cool blue subway tile in a kitchen, or a blue painted reclaimed hardwood floor in a study."
Another interesting flooring idea is a very light aqua wood-look tile. "We pair this with white, taupe, and gray, and the colors work together quite well," said Psyhos. "It's both fresh and exciting at the same time." For more information about adding color into your home, please contact:
