Mostly boring in design, we usually do not even notice tiles, but that should never be the case in your home. The majority of tiles on display in showrooms do not always effectively showcase what beautiful looks you can create and also re-create with the perfect tile. We discover top tile trends at the moment and how you can use them to create stylish spaces in your home.
We have been seeing mixed geometrics in many coffee shops and trendy delis. Bring that feeling to your home by experimenting with interesting geometric tiles in different shades. This look works well in kitchens and bathrooms. Trapezoid, rhombus and diamond-shaped tiles allow for more interesting layouts than simple grids and running bonds.
Bright, psychedelic patterns appeal to a wide range of people. Perfect for outside areas, you can find these fun patterns in paisley, kaleidoscope and abstract patterns. Pair busy tiles with muted walls, cabinets and monochromatic decorative elements.
Large-scale patterns can be hard to envision if you do not see great examples on the show floor. Large scale tiles work great on walls and floors, depending on the look you are after. This year we have seen a lot of patterns inspired by plant life. Expect to see designs of palm trees, big leaves and floral inspirations.
Recreate the look of fancy marble and precious and semi-precious stones with this tile trend. If you are looking for a dramatic, opulent style, this is it. Tile designers are creating looks inspired by onyx and agate, to tiles with an iridescent finish like pearls. This style is great for a feature wall, countertop or backsplash.
A raw industrial look never goes out of fashion. These concrete and stone look-alike tiles work wonders in contemporary spaces. The great thing is that this type of tiling is super low-maintenance and versatile and one of our favourite tile trends.
