What is New in Floor Tiles?


Are you planning to revamp your home floors with something different and unique?

Tiles have totally taken off over the past decade or so, beautifully replicating the hottest wood looks as well as expanding into new textures to offer the most convincing look and feel. Regardless of the design style you have in mind, tile flooring is a smart way to add flair to your home decor. Here are some designs and products that are new in floor tiles.

1. Tile sizes and shapes

Unique shapes and styles, such as hexagons and mosaics, are the newest trend in wood-look tiles, tending to be larger and larger. Tiles can now be as large as 24×48 inches and are available with realistic types of stone, such as marble tiles, limestone tiles and travertine tiles. Large-format tiles have fewer grout lines to clean and help a room look bigger, more open and less busy.

A lot of fun geometric shapes like large hexagon floor tiles are now coming up. Herringbone, chevron and mixed-width patterned floor tiles are showing up everywhere, as well as laying a room on a diagonal. Wood, laminate, vinyl and even wood-look tile are popular in mixed-width flooring.

2. Concrete-look floor tiles

Concrete-look tiles are making their way into contemporary interior designs. Huge slabs of concrete tiles and concrete countertops are becoming common.

3. Metallic floor tiles

Metallic tiles are popping up all over the place, and they actually look pretty cool. Trending in bathroom floors, metallic tile stands out and follows the theme of using new technologies to create looks that had previously been impossible.

4. Fabric-look floor tiles

The soft and subtle textures of linen, silk and more are new in floor tiles. These fabric replicas offer a soft look with a lasting, dependable floor and you still get the easy maintenance and clean-up of tile, but your floors look like cosy linen or expensive silk.

5. Wood-look floor tiles

The texture trends that are popular in both solid hardwood and wood lookalikes include wire-brushed, hand-scrapped and distressed. Each textured wood-look comes with its own unique style and character and these wood-look tile floors make your home look warm, current and expensive.

6. Blonde wood-look floor tiles

As more homeowners embrace the light, airy feel in their home, a huge resurgence in blonde wood-look floors will be observed. With blonde wood-look tiles, your decorating possibilities are so many.

7. High colour variation floor tiling

High colour variation is trending in both wood and stone looks. Wood looks typically feature colour variation between planks, whereas high variation in stone-look tile typically refers to the amount of colour variation in each individual floor tile.
