Incorporating Patterned Tile Into Your Home
Patterned tiles have been around forever. They add color, interest, and extra pizazz to a space, making them a favorite amongst designers and homeowners alike. Here’s a few foolproof ways to incorporate patterned tile into your home, and create a look you’ll love for years to come!
Laundry Room Love
We all have to do laundry — so we might as well love our laundry rooms! Laundry rooms are an ideal space to test the waters with patterned tile. Add inspiration to an otherwise plain laundry room with a bright and busy ceramic tile, or hand painted cement tile. Durable, beautiful, and fun — patterned tile in your laundry room will add that perfect punch of character to an often-unloved space.

A Brightened Bathroom
Floors aren’t the only place for patterned tile! Give your bathroom a quick dose of character by creating a focal wall behind the vanity or bathtub. By only tiling the top half of the wall, you’ll enjoy a high-end aesthetic, without a high-end budget.
RiteRug Flooring offers a wide selection of tile flooring in all different shapes and colors that are perfect for any bathroom in your home! Check out our full collection HERE!
Stairs That Sizzle
Your stair risers are a cool, unexpected place to add a pop of style. From classic small mosaic tiles to unique and bold Spanish style designs, tiled risers have a welcoming effect, without overwhelming your space.
What’s best of all about tiling flooring? With such a small area to cover, your budget will go far. Opt for a tile you really love, without hating the price tag, and add that extra pizazz you’ve been missing!
Fab Fireplace Fix
A fireplace is already a natural focal point in the home, especially in living rooms, but if it’s time for an update, take advantage of the minimal square footage and go bold with a stylish patterned tile! But if that’s too big of a change to handle, consider simply tiling the hearth.
Since it's just a small area, you'll still get the added character without completely changing your aesthetic, and you’ll have room to work with any budget that works best for you!

5 Tips To Sell Your Home Faster
We may not be ready to ditch our winter coats just yet, but before we know it, spring will arrive!
We all know that spring and summer are hot for the housing market, so if you’re planning a move, check out our 7 tips for selling your home at the best possible price — and fast!
Apply a Fresh Coat of Paint
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again — paint is one of the most effective, and least expensive ways to update your home. New paint has the ability to lighten and brighten a room, and make it feel new again, as it contrasts with the flooring in the room. Choose a grey or greige for wide appeal, and opt for a flat finish to hide any imperfections.
Keep The Clutter to a Minimum
Beneficial in more ways than one, decluttering will help you prepare for your move, and enable buyers to more easily imagine themselves in the home.
The less you have, the better — especially when it comes to closet space. Half-empty closets will create the illusion of fabulous storage, even if it’s not really that fabulous. If the walls and floor are clear, it’s easy to compliment the colors of the room, creating a more desirable room and ultimately a more desirable home.
A well-lit home is key in creating a positive and inviting experience for potential buyers. Make sure bulbs are in working order, and swap out dated fixtures when possible. Great lighting will also make the walls and carpet or flooring pop out more, providing an easy, mini refresh to any room.

Cabinet & Hardware Upgrade
We all know that kitchens and bathrooms have the ability to sell a home. But if your cabinetry looks boring and out of style, your selling price will likely reflect that. Paint-dated, mid-toned cabinetry a bright white for a clean, and contemporary refresh, and consider splurging on some new, beautiful hardware to complete the look.
Broken tiles and old, peeling vinyl flooring send major red flags to a buyer. In their mind, flooring will cost a lot to replace. Luckily, you know there are affordable and beautiful remedies to refresh your flooring before your home hits the market. Consider Luxury Vinyl flooring for this quick and affordable update.
