Hope everyone is off to a great week! This week for our #TileTuesday post we wanted to feature the details behind the porcelain tile floors at the brand new Beacon Lake Clubhouse we designed with Basham & Lucas Design Group. We wanted the clubhouse floors to make a statement to the members of the community as they entered the space. Leaving guests with a sense that the clubhouse was personalized for them.
We designed the long hallway that runs throughout the clubhouse to have insets of a contrasting porcelain tile by Emser Tile. To give the room depth and visual interest we arranged the tile in a herringbone pattern, drawing your eye directly to the social room and fireplace.
The white washed wood porcelain tile that covers a majority of the clubhouse is from Crossville Tile & Stone by a company called Ilva. We selected this as the main floor tile to keep the cleanliness of the New England style interior. We decided to change up the direction of the tile on either side of the room to mimic the wood ceilings above. This also helped make the room appear much wider than it is.
As always, we aim to tie the exterior in with the interior. If you are not aware, porcelain tile is not only attractive but is also extremely durable. Most companies make their porcelain tile products to be used in an exterior application that is covered. It was the perfect opportunity to carry the tile from the clubhouse over to the fitness room without losing our design flow.
The covered foyer was designed as if it was still apart of the interior space, joining together the two sides of the clubhouse as a whole. We aligned the contrasting wood tile with the columns to enhance the architectural details by Basham & Lucas and directed the white washed wood tile towards the lake drawing your eye out towards the stunning view.
