Tile will always be in style, whether the look is classic or contemporary or anything in-between. But do you know about the latest looks available in the tile world today? Find out the most popular trends in tile right now! Learn how to incorporate the latest fashion in your interior.
One of our favorite trends right now is placing tile on an entire wall in the kitchen. Who says backsplash should only be 18 inches high? Since backsplash is the jewelry of a kitchen, there is no reason to only use backsplash tiles in small portions. In other words start the backsplash at the counter top and install it all the way up to the ceiling. This looks especially good on the wall behind the range.
Typically, above the range there are few (if any) upper cabinets. This is the perfect location to showcase a beautiful tile backsplash! Apply this technique in kitchens with few upper cabinets (this is also trending as well). Run the tile behind floating shelves to really open up and beautify this space.
The classic chevron pattern has been showing up more and more in tile installation. This requires long skinny tiles. In the end the result is nothing short of stunning. A classic look is created in an eye catching manner. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Tile that appears to be other materials is enjoying the limelight. Due to huge advances in digital scanning and printing technology, porcelain tile can now be made to look like a wide variety of materials. Long tile can look like wood planks (with the pattern scanned from a wide variety of wood species and finishes). Instead of installing a wood floor with the maintenance associated with its care, try porcelain planks!
