Bolder Finishes for Wall & Floor
Every year brings more options for tiles and ideas to bring into your interiors. If you’re ready to try something new and bold, consider the following trends for this year.
Tiles seem to be getting bolder and bolder, as graphic geometric tiles are very much on the trend radar this year. We’re seeing these statement tiles used for kitchen backsplashes, in guest bathrooms and even in outdoor spaces. They’re a great choice when you’re really looking for that wow factor.
This typically polished composite material with a distinctive speckled look, is making quite a comeback thanks to high definition printing, in porcelain. Traditionally used for floors – however this look is making its way to kitchen counter-tops now.
The classic pattern has been gracing the floors and walls since the 19th century, and based on the design’s recent rise in popularity, it’ll likely be around for another century or two to come, especially due to its diverse tile combinations.
If you’re looking for an interesting floor design to define or separate spaces a tile rug is a wonderful solution to consider. This is not actually a rug; it just looks like one, with an outside border and an inside design. Customized to fit your space, the “rug” is installed first, and the rest of the tile is worked in around it. It’s a great seamless way to personalize your floor!
Colour & More Colour
HGTV interior designers are predicting that more colorful tiles are coming our way. They are seeing a lot of interest in tiles with glaze and color variations. Anything that brightens your room is great, especially when it’s combined with a bold color.
We are also seeing a lot of beautiful and earthy options in the gray and blue world.
Creating a bit of distinction with bold, dark grout is a way to make your space look more unique. To give a new spin to your traditional subway tiles, transform it with contrasting grout for a subtle yet appealing finish. Of course this style is by no means limited to a rectangular shape! Get creative with hexagon and arabesque tiles too.
