With an ever-expanding range of pattern, size and finish, tiles offer unmatched variety and versatility for every room. Decor assistant Jen Gough brings you up-to-date with the latest tiling trends – and products to match.
Cool colours often represent serenity and when used in a home can create an air of calm. For a spa-like feel, consider incorporating a sea of soft blues, greens and whites into the space, or for a rich, luxurious look decorate with dark, powerful Prussian blue and emerald green. Conversely, all-white will create a highly modern, clean atmosphere. Be sure to consider the size of the space, too – these hues can make a room appear larger and more refined and therefore work well in smaller spaces.
Tiles can provide an effective way to bring an outdoors feel into a home. With a wide range of colours and textures, earthy tiles can make a room seem rustic and cosy or modern and sophisticated. Pair rich, muddy reds and oranges with neutral creams for a diverse colour palette that doesn’t overwhelm.
Bright and Bold
Tiles no longer only act as a neutral canvas for a room’s interior design. Create feature walls and accent pieces with vibrant colours and unexpected patterns to amp up a plain interior. Experiment with textures and shapes such as mosaics that add a vintage feel to a modern home, or play with linear in bold hues to create a sleek, contemporary look.
