With so many designs, shapes, colors and styles of tile available on the market, it can be overwhelming to choose a tile for your floors or walls. Not only are tiles highly functional, but also carry a lot of aesthetic and design value. Choosing the right tile may be a big decision, but here are some of the top tile trends of 2019 to consider.
Do you want to feel as though you’ve just stepped into a coastal city of the Mediterranean, an Italian cafe, or the streets of Spain? European-inspired patterned tiles will make you feel just that. Their big and bold patterns create alluring accents when used on both floors and walls. You won’t be able to take your eyes off of this old-world style that has enticed Europe for centuries.
The classic and simplistic neutral tile is ideal for creating an elegant and timeless look. A neutral color palette allows your mind to relax and creates a calm space. To prevent your neutral space from becoming boring, add in textures, shapes and layer with other neutral colors to create contrast.
For an edgy and bright look, metallic tile, especially copper, could be the perfect pick. During the day, natural light will reflect off of the tile to give more light to your room. At night, your lighting can be placed strategically under cabinets and pointed toward the tile for a dramatic appearance.
A small change in tile shape can make all the difference. If you’re not into the big bold colors and patterns, try trading in your rectangular tiles for a shaped tile. The most popular shape right now is the hexagon, which gives dimension to spaces and creates an eye-catching honeycomb design.
More than ever before, we’re seeing bright unexpected colors in tile design used for flooring, walls and backsplashes. Tiles are an exciting way to add a big pop of color to your space and to show off your personality. By pairing these bold tiles with neutral colors, your tile will be the talk of the room.
Ditch the glossy tiles and say hello to matte. For a sophisticated and powerful look, matte tiles are a great choice for your space. Matte finish tiles are easy to maintain and can provide a low-sheen and sleek look to both your floors and walls.
