Let’s take a look at current tile trends.
Best Tile Designs to Inspire Your Next Renovation
If you are planning to add a fresh touch to your floors or walls, these tile trends can give you the inspiration you’re looking for.
1. Magical Moroccan
Known for their vivid colors and combinations of intricate designs, timeless Moroccan-style tiles have become a significant trend this year. On monochromatic walls, they’re a great way to engage the viewer, while adding a unique and exotic splash of color to your wall or floor. For a more authentic effect, use natural materials with texture in your curtains and furniture, like cotton, burlap, and jute.
Additionally, they are easy to clean as well as durable. Remember, wall tiles and floor tiles have different PEI ratings which determine where they can be installed. The Reno Superstore has a similar design right here.
2. New Vintage
With designers focused on decorative details and fine craftsmanship to create perfect floors, incorporating vintage designs into your modern aesthetic can result in major payoffs.
To that end introduce deep glazed tiles such as herringbone or stack bond. These essentially vintage designs add a modern twist to your decor. Mosaic tiles are very water-resistant so don’t think twice about installing them in moisture-prone areas of your home – something you’d never dream of doing with solid hardwood. We have found something that may interest you right here.
3. Perfect Patterns
A decorative tile is a great way to refresh or update kitchens, bathrooms, and hallways. Installing them on your floors can bring your room to life.
When you shop for tiles, you may notice that they come in a pattern. That’s why installing them without prior experience or the right tools is best avoided, as breaking any pattern can make your floors look unfinished and shabby. Best to hire reputable and experienced flooring installers, like the ones working for The Reno Superstore.
Remember to use patterns cleverly and effectively. Otherwise, it can become quite off-putting. For instance, if you are using a pattern for floors, avoid choosing the same or another busy design for the walls. Find a similar style here.
4. Stunning Stones
Natural stone or stone-patterned tiles are always a stunning style statement for floors and walls. They also help to create a seamless feel between inside and outside. This feature is much desired in open floor plans. Since tiles are such versatile creations and extremely tough, they work well in high-traffic areas and last well in all weather conditions.
Interior designers recommend choosing large tiles with a simple design to flawlessly combine exterior and interior elements. Remember, this rule isn’t just for floors and can be applied to walls as well. We found a similar style here.
5. Dark Drama
Dramatic styles capture your attention like no other. If you want to create an immediate visual impact, then consider dark-colored flooring. Use colors like dark grey or charcoal black in a glossy or matte finish and add warm lights to create a stunning space for yourself.
The added advantage of dark flooring is that it hides the little imperfections that occur naturally over time. They also help to add focus to the rest of the room’s elements and are truly unexpected and refreshing. Try something like this here.
6. Textured Tile
Tiles are well-loved for their designs, but what truly gives them their inherent versatility is their ability to flawlessly mimic textures. Texture adds depth and dimension to any space, making them a popular choice for floors and walls alike.
Textured tiles are a great way to revamp outdoor patios, kitchens, even bathrooms. Rugged stone tiles can make any space look unique and stylish. Besides beautiful, these tiles are also quite practical. Their unique texture minimizes the risk of slips and falls, something that is always a risk with glossy tiles. Check this one out in a similar style.
7. Interesting Shapes
Tiles come in different shapes; this sets them apart from other flooring materials. Unlike hardwood planks, tiles come in various designs like hexagons and diamonds, among others.
Installing interesting shapes in your foyer, entryway, or backyard can be visually captivating. For instance, lantern-shaped tile can act as a stunning accent wall, or even a pathway leading to your backyard.
These tiles can help unleash your creativity. Add a hexagonal tile wall beside your hardwood floors. These will complement each other and can be a fun way to stylize your walls instead of paint.
Adding a medley of different shapes and designs can be ideal for a grand entrance, or any space that shows off your unique personality. We found a fun shape for you right here.
