Tiles are one of the most important elements of your bathroom. They cover a large area and can change the whole look and feel of the room. Tile design has really blossomed in the last few years and there are some incredible patterns, shapes and textures available. So, what are the latest tile trends and predictions for 2014? Read on to find out.
Matte tiles are becoming extremely popular. There are so many incredible tiles available in the soft, powdery matte finish; you are bound to find some that you love. These are great as a feature tile on one whole wall, or section of the bathroom, for example, the wall behind the vanity or in the shower.
Neutral tiles are the colour of choice at the moment. Black, charcoal, grey and brown tiles can create a simple but stylish look. Pair neutral colour tiles with a white bath and vanity and accessorize with neutrals and whites for a nice contrast.
Patterned tiles have also become very popular recently. The patterns on these tiles are influenced by Moroccan heritage designs and are great for a more adventurous bathroom design. These tiles are very detailed and busy, so it’s a good idea to use them for the floor only, or on one wall or section. These patterns come in all different colours and sizes to suit any space.
Rectangle shaped tiles are very fashionable at the moment, and there is a massive variety in rectangle tiles now. Rather than the traditional 1:2 ratio, rectangle tiles are being made in all different sizes now and can be laid in various patterns. There are so many possibilities with rectangle tiles; you could use small skinny tiles laid in line with each other for a very modern look with clean cut lines, or if you want to add a bit of dimension, you can have these same tiles laid in a staggered layout to resemble bricks.
Wooden look tiles are one of the top trends in tiles. You may think it a little strange to have what looks like a wooden floor in the bathroom, but it is surprisingly beautiful. It creates a natural, simple look in the bathroom without being boring. It adds some texture and dimension to the bathroom for a really unique look. Wooden look tiles come in many shapes, sizes, colours and textures to suit any style. These tiles can also be laid in various ways and come in a range of different wood looks.
