Design Through the Decades - part 43

Flooring in Phoenix homes in the 1990s was basically a larger version of the 1980s.  The 1980s had a lot of 8″ ceramic tile squares.  The 1990s moved up to 12″ ceramic tile.

The 12″ ceramic tile of the 1990s was usually a light color and sold for about $1 per tile.

As the decade progressed, tile color became darker and more varied.

Carpeting was still a popular flooring choice in the 1990s.  The favorite carpet color was tan.

Starter homes in the 1990s came with rolled linoleum in kitchens and bathrooms.  If a Phoenix home was built in the 1990s and had tile, you knew it was an upgrade.

    I hate linoleum! It should be outlawed! The other floors are lovely.
