Flooring is the predominant application for decorative tile and demand is expected to grow faster than any other application through 2020, according to Decorative Tile, a new study from The Freedonia Group.

In the residential market, gains will be boosted by consumer interest in tile flooring in kitchens, bathrooms, dining rooms and foyers, both in new housing and in renovation projects. Decorative tile flooring also appeals to construction professionals and building managers in the nonresidential market because of its durability, low maintenance requirements and slip resistance.
