Gone are the days of feature tiles that were overtly bold and gaudy. Interior designers are now taking bathroom design to the next level through experimentation with the tiles’ shape, texture and colour.
Using interesting and quirky tiles in a stylish and sophisticated way to add wow factor to these spaces is certainly a trend for 2016. Here are our favourite 6 tile trends to keep an eye on.
This trend has been around for a while but it’s predicted that they will be used more creatively over the next year. We love how they can be used in interesting patterns (especially herringbone) and will increasingly be used on walls not just floors.
Not necessarily a new look but it is certainly here to stay. With the popularity of polished concrete but the difficulty in achieving a “perfect” finish, concrete tiles are a great way to achieve this urban look with a little more class. They can even come in large format tiles to add more of a dramatic impact featured in an ensuite we recently completed in Camberwell.
A much easier to maintain option than the real thing, brick-look tiles were popular throughout 2015 (think the subway station look) but this year it’s all about the rustic, aged brick reminiscent of a downtown loft. This trend will be popular on walls as well as on the floor.
Adored for its sophistication in bench tops, marble style tiles (made of porcelain instead) are going to be popular in large formats installed on the floor and walls. The white with grey vein is still going to be the favourite look.
Now this is a very dramatic look and not for everyone. Metallic tiles look fantastic in opulent ensuites or powder rooms in the form of a mosaic type pattern.
These tiles almost jump off the wall at you. Tiles with rough, wavy, jagged or bumpy surfaces in more of a neutral pallet, these tiles are sure to be a big thing this year.
