Whether you’re building a home or remodeling your kitchen or bathroom space, tile can be used in a myriad of ways to create a unique, personalized space. Here are 6 tile trends to create stunning visual impact without destroying your budget.
Like many other industries, certain tile shapes come to the forefront of popular design each season. Brick shaped tiles are modern and timeless, and even with this simple shape the options are exponential. From macro to micro, vintage or clean and modern, polished to rustic, brick tiles are available in almost any color and finish you can imagine.
Chevrons and herringbone are a timeless pattern that never goes out of style. Herringbone and chevron designs are available on scales from thin lines to inches wide allowing you to create the pattern you desire.
Endless variations exist on another of the most basic elements of design: the line. Straight lines, intersecting lines, flat or three-dimensional, linear designs can run from the most simple to elaborate, modern to classic. Lines can add movement and depth to any tiled surface.
Tile can be a great place to add a pop of color, but designing in grayscale can add endless sophistication to your space. From cool late tones to blends of grey and beige, there is an entire spectrum of grey available in different shapes and finishes.
Soft Meets Hard
There is something magical about creating a soft design with something hard like tile. Distressed tile that has been sandblasted, tile with the look of fabric, warm and cool shades in soft tones can all create a reprieve from the hard lines often found in tiled surfaces. If your aesthetic is less modern and more classic and homey, the watercolor and velvety textures found in some tiles can bring warmth to your home.
Play with Size
Fragmented patterns on square and rectangle tiles combined to produce large, stunning compositions can create a statement piece in your bath or kitchen. For something completely modern and new, supersized tiles bring new design possibilities to any home. Large, thin porcelain slabs can be used to cover countertops or to create smooth, stunning wall spaces and backsplashes.
