What are the Latest Tile Trends?
Tile trends are constantly evolving with different varieties of textures, tile shapes and finishes fluctuating in popularity over the years. Different finishes such as a gloss tiles, matte tiles as well as textured tiles will each have their place in the home as their individual surface finishes will provide specific benefits in different applications. Gloss tiles for example are a popular choice as a wall tile as their reflective surface will brighten up darker spaces while matte and textured tiles are a popular choice as a floor tile solution, providing better grip underfoot than other options. You will also find that many tiling options will provide a timeless look, offering endless appeal in any application throughout the home. These often include marble tiles, travertine tiles and other types of natural stone tiles as well as concrete tiles. Stay up to date with all the latest in tile trends in our blog: Talking Tiles.
Are Natural Stone Tiles Timeless?
In short, yes! Natural stone tiles will provide a timeless look in the home, pairing well with just about any style of design from traditional to contemporary. This year, we are seeing more marble tile options becoming available in a range of luxurious naturally occurring colours and patterns such as blush pink marble, green marble as well as cream marble tiles. Travertine tiles are also another popular choice for the home, once again offering endless appeal. The unique textures, colours and patterns presented in travertine stone make for a luxurious yet earthy look in any application, from the kitchen to the bathroom and more.
Creating a Cosy Atmosphere with Textured Tiles
Creating a warm and inviting atmosphere in the home is easily achieved by combining contrasting textures. Including a rich variety of textures and finishes in your home’s design scheme creates a wonderfully tactile environment that allows you to take advantage of the many benefits offered by each individual material. Timber tiles for example will create a luxuriously low maintenance finish in the home, effortlessly replicating the earthy look of real timber while providing a surface that is resistant to staining, moisture, scratching and staining. These tiles will pair well with both natural stone surfaces as well as concrete surfaces, allowing you to combine a range of materials to create a warm and cosy atmosphere in the home.
Modern Tiling Solutions: Stone, Timber & Concrete Look Porcelain Tiles
Advances in modern tile manufacturing technology have paved the way for new and exciting finishes to be achieved especially in the area of porcelain tile design. Materials such as natural stone tiles or concrete tiles are both porous and as such, do require ongoing maintenance in order to ensure their longevity in the home. Traditional timber flooring solutions will similarly experience some restrictions as their surface can scratch or stain or be affected by moisture, direct sunlight and excess water, eliminating them as a solution for wet areas such as the laundry or bathroom. Modern porcelain tile designs can be used in place of these types of materials with an enormous range of porcelain ‘lookalike’ tiling solutions available that effortlessly mimic the look, texture and organic patterns of materials such as natural stone, concrete as well as timber. Porcelain tiles are well known for their immense durability and strength, providing a virtually non-porous option that will not require sealing and is resistant to scratching, staining and moisture, making them an excellent fit for all areas of the home including wet areas such as the bathroom or laundry room.
