Grey hues and tones remain a very much sought after colour for interiors. Although moving away from a completely neutral palate, 2017 will see the introduction of contrasting vibrant colours and patterned tiles to bring the look together.
Texture will be a significant design element in interiors tiling arrangements. 3D effect tiles are an exciting design element that will add a modern edge to interior design looks. Tile shape is also changing with new shape combinations replacing the traditional square and rectangle configurations. ( see our new Arrivals- CUBICS and WALL ART) There will be more use of hexagonal and ‘V’ shape tiles used to add a design element to a plain surface or space. There is a trend for funky décor tiles being used as a splashback in kitchens, with textures such as glass and metallic tiles complementing bright colours for a contemporary look. (see our new Arrivals – DIAMOND)
Vintage designs will still be a feature in 2017 tiling trends and bring a sense of heritage to interior design. Moving away from Shabby Chic, the look is clean cut with Victorian and Georgian tile patterns combined with classic tile shapes and colours for a contemporary aesthetic.
Bathroom design is moving away from the traditional formation and focusing on creating a rejuvenating space. For city spaces and those downsizing to a smaller property where space is at a premium, wet rooms are an increasingly popular installation.
