Are you looking to revamp your home this year or as part of your annual spring clean? Updating your floors and walls with these stunning tile trends is the perfect place to start. When you’re planning a renovation, it can be easy to overlook tiles. But, as the cornerstones to our homes, floors and walls make the biggest difference to the look and feel of any room.
Don’t underestimate the amazing transformative power of tiles! Updating your home with an on-trend tiling choice is a great way to give your home an instant face-lift.
Add muted colour with new neutral tile trends
2019 is the year of the ‘new neutral’. This refers to a palette of roses, lilacs, metallics, and duck-egg greens and blues. These delicate shades are ideal for introducing colour into a room, without it feeling disruptive. Inspired by the Scandi trend in interior design, the ‘new neutrals’ tile trends work perfectly to soften minimalist spaces.
Bright pastel tones are ideal for opening up a room, so if you’re looking to maximise a space, muted neutral wall tiles are perfect. Use misty blues to create a calming influence, or dusty pinks for a feminine feel. These candy-coloured tones are ideal for introducing pleasant colour to a peaceful room.
Create a modern feature with geometric tile formations
The desire for clean, geometric lines and creative shapes is one of the defining interior trends of the decade. Gone are the days of tiles defaulting to the humble rectangle. Hexagonal tiles are perfecting for bringing this trend to any space. They’re suitable for use on floors and walls and create a stunning honeycomb effect. Mix and match contrasting hexagonal tiles for a truly striking feature wall, or some statement flooring.
Laying classic rectangular tiles in a herringbone formation is also a popular way to try this trend. Use contrasting monochrome tiles for a dramatic chevron pattern.
Go armchair travelling with patterned tiles
Want to feel like you’re on holiday all year long? Patterned tiles are a wonderful way to bring the feel of a faraway villa to your home. With endless designs, finishes and colours to choose from, finding a place for patterned tiles in your home is easy.
Moroccan-inspired tiles have an enduring popularity and are perfect for introducing the influence of sunnier climes to a space. Blue and white floral patterns, reminiscent of Delft pottery, are ideal for capturing continental chic. For the opulence of some far-off, five-star hotel, consider the timeless luxe of a Calcatta marble-style tile.
Keep it simple with metro tiles
2019 has seen a boost in the popularity of the classic metro tile. It’s easy to see why more and more people are opting for metro tiles on their walls and back-splashes. Available in an array of colours, sizes and finishes, this simple design offers limitless options for usage.
You can achieve any of the above tile trends while using metro tiles, which is a testament to their versatility. Lay metro tiles in a herringbone tile, or choose a patterned style, to create a feature wall or creative kitchen back-splash.
We hope these tile trends have you feeling inspired for your next big design project. Whatever look you’re hoping to achieve, there’s a tiling technique to transform your abode into the home of your dreams and push your home to the cutting edge of interior design.
