These tiles can be purchased in virtually any color and style, making it easy to create the most unusual patterns and designs.

This cool and cost-effective flooring is durable and ideal for basements, kids’ rooms and exercise spaces.
3. Porcelain Tile
Porcelain tile is available in an endless array of colors and styles, including slate lookalikes. It’s easy to find tile on sale, and if you have a knack for DIY projects, you can install tile on your own, saving plenty of money.
