Using Tiles to give your home personality – Tile Trends 2018
Hoping to sell your home soon? If you want to up that asking price, then introducing some stylish new tiles is a great way to increase the value of your home and make it more appealing to the potential buyer. The addition of a beautiful new floor can work wonders for your home and it’s the perfect way to inject some personality into your decor. Here are the top 2018 tile trends!
Definitely not a new 2018 tile trend but one we still can’t get enough of marble tiles. Apparently ‘Spa Bathrooms’ is a top Pinterest search and marble tiles fit this look perfectly. Previously seen as too extravagant and perhaps only suited to luxury hotels, marble is now accessible to all. Small, slender marble bricks that can be laid in herringbone (especially in Carrara) are particularly desirable right now. You don’t even have to invest in the real deal – there are some incredible alternatives out there in printed luxury vinyl products. Try Harvey Maria or Amtico for some inspiration.
From subtle surface texture to richly embossed tiles, texture defined the way in 2018. For eye-catching feature walls, stylish bathroom tiling or kitchen splash backs, they will undoubtedly add character. Try Moduleo Impress which mimics the textures of wood, stone, slate and concrete perfectly.
Indoor/outdoor porcelain tiles
For a truly seamless surface, consider the use of porcelain tiles that flow from the inside to outside, creating a unique living space that really flows. New collections have been designed specifically to allow for continuity of size and finish from inside to out.
The traditional subway tile has been our ‘go-to’ tile for decades now but who doesn’t like to add a little creativity in 2018. Hexagon tiles haven’t quite had their day, but we’re moving on to more unusual shapes such as triangles and stars. It’s not all about geometric though, consider softer shapes such as scallops and circles create a more feminine feel. Take a look Amtico for some stunning designs mimicking the Victorian era of tonal patterned tiles. Or if you want to give your home the wow factor how about Moduelo Moods which has a completely different take on patterned luxury vinyl tiles in a range of shapes and finishes.
Luxury vinyl tiles
Luxury vinyl tiles are a great addition to any home – and are particularly good for high traffic areas including hallways and kitchens. They are highly water resistant and slip proof making them ideal for bathrooms and are soft and warm underfoot compared to laminate or tile. Brands such as Amtico, Karndean, Moduleo and Quick Step produce some incredible tile effects in wood, stone, concrete and tile and they are available in some stunning patterns.
