This year is already shaping up to be a year of unique design trends for the home. Fresh styles are emerging for ceramic floor tiles, as traditional stone and wood looks are being traded out for decorative, geometric or modern-rustic looks. Take a sneak peek at the ceramic floor and wall tile trends of 2017—these beautiful designs will get you inspired for some home renovations!
Trendy Ceramic Tiles for 2017
Wall and floor tile trends of 2017 are vibrant and cross design boundaries with textures, colours, patterns, and materials. Although last year’s large sizes, textile-inspired, and metallic looks are still popular, 2017 is all about innovation. Instead of going with traditional checkerboard patterns or solid coloured tiles, the emerging trends include triangles, asymmetry, retro looks, rustic looks, and macro marble designs.
Decorative Ceramic Tile
Designers are getting inspiration from various cultures to give each home a unique ambiance. Clay 41 is inspired by Native American culture and features a decorative, diamond-like texture. The Magical tile collection explores glamorous patterns and looks from hexagon-like tiles to golden curved tiles, and some designs also have a metallic appearance. Chic wall tiles can be installed in a variety of shapes and sizes, giving your kitchen backsplash or bathroom a look of sophistication and customization. For ultimate elegance and a trendy feel, however, the Verve Design includes undulating, reflective surfaces.
Wood-Look Ceramic Tile
The wood-look tile was very popular last year and will continue to be trendy in 2017. Wood 41 is one example that is taking the cabin-like design to a whole new level. Instead of bold, warm, earthy colours, the designs are available in shades of light grey and taupe, giving rooms an exquisite matte, brushed finish and a more versatile background to suit your home décor.
Brick-Look Ceramic Tile
When people think of brick, they typically think about the rustic, maroon colour that accentuates a fireplace. Tribeca is a brick-look ceramic tile pattern that can be used in virtually any room. The tile, which comes in taupe, grey, and shades of dull, matte brown, adds a cool and cozy feeling to your living room or dining room.
For a three-dimensional reflective look, the Facetado design achieves this thanks to its use of geometric shapes. It creates an almost imperceptible texture and a strikingly artistic effect. The combination of geometric shapes and metallic shine is also rising in popularity as a contemporary and distinguished look. The Geom design blends these two trending features and achieves a look that can be used as your statement wall in your bedroom or living room.
For a new twist on retro styles and patterns, Streamline takes the subway tile look to a whole new level. The designs come in five classic colours that will remain trendy for years and feature unique chair rails, edged liners, and listellos that combine details from retro trends with a modern revival. You can add flair and finesse to your kitchen backsplash or opt for a bold and daring bathroom design.
Geometric designs are one of the biggest trends for 2017. The intricate details and shapes add personality and sophistication to every space and give the whole room a modern look. There are many beautiful designs to choose from, whether you are changing the floors in your living room, adding a tile backsplash to your kitchen, or revamping the walls and floors of your bedroom. There are many benefits to using tile in any space—it is easy to clean when maintained, durable, and adds a beautiful shine as the ceramic refracts light beams. Several beautiful examples of tiles that will change your entire home include Carrara, Wig Wag, Magical, Rigo, Chic, and Hexatile.
