The people who are now slowly entering, or have already reached, their 30s. This generation is one of the worst-off generations in terms of predicted wealth accumulation, stable income and job security. As such, these millennials are people who fondly remember the 90s as being the first decade of their lives. They cherish the memories they have of the 90s and many of them are looking to bring that 90s flavour into their homes. Below we have listed some of the popular tiling trends of the 90s that are making a comeback.

Wooden floors are synonymous with class and elegance. These are some of the most “premium” looking flooring options you can deploy to get that look of class and elegance which you can find on sites such as tileclub.com. While actual wooden flooring can be quite rough on new finances, there is a much cheaper alternative that can accomplish the visual aesthetics you desire. There are added benefits of these tiles including the fact that they are much more durable, easy to install and also easier to clean and maintain.

The vintage retro look of a 90s flooring scheme has come back in style quite aggressively. This design trend of the 90s (and 80s) makes for a fresh and unique look, where the only limitation of design patterns is the imagination of those designing it.

The vintage look is particularly preferred among those who are into the pop culture and design aesthetics of the 90s and 80s. Although it is more associated with the 80s than the 90s, the later was the one when they became more popular. This type of flooring will definitely give you a sense of nostalgia and make you go back to the simpler times of the 90s, when most millennials were just starting their life off in this world as just kids.

Patterned tiles were a staple favorite among many homeowners of the 90s. It really does not matter what colors they are made of, as long as they are patterned.

These types of tiles were very popular for use in kitchens and bathrooms. The kitchen and the bathroom are spaces of the house where decor quality is often sacrificed for functionality. That does not always have to be the case. Style and functionality can go hand in hand when you choose patterned tiles. These are areas of the house that are mainly made up of straight lines and solid surfaces. Adding even a few patterned tiles among them can be an awesome way to bring in some softness to the design. It also is a very definite way to give the space a bit of uniqueness and some personality.

This is a very bold option in the design scheme and can help to make the house feel like a place that is enriched with greenery.
