2021 is set to be a big year for home renovation. After months of spending time indoors, many people have grown tired of their existing interior and are looking to give their home a new lease of life. Updating your floor or wall tiles is an excellent way to revamp your kitchen, bathroom, living room or hallway. Here we take inspiration from some of the 2021 tile trends that are expected to be big in the new year.
Wood effect tiles
Wooden floors are incredibly trendy and look great in any home, but engineered wood is expensive and needs regular maintenance to keep it looking fresh. Wood effect tiles are a great alternative that not only look realistic, but are durable and require minimal upkeep. They’re also cheaper than the real thing when you factor in the ongoing costs.
Whilst wood effect tiles have been popular for some time now, we’re seeing more and more people choose to lay tiles in a parquet style to create a rustic or vintage look. In 2021 we expect this trend to become even more popular than it is already, as well as an increase in the number of people choosing to use wood effect tiles to create striking features walls.
Bold colour combinations
For the past few years we’ve seen people gravitate to neutral colours and this trend is set to continue into 2021. However, we do anticipate an increase in bold colour combinations, with people choosing to mix grey or white tiles, with a statement paint colour such as navy blue and even black on the walls.
Earthy tones are also expected to make an appearance in 2021. Muted greens, rust and bronze will all be popular, helping create a rustic finish in period style homes.
Terrazzo tiles are a must have for any modern kitchen or bathroom in 2021. They have grown in popularity thanks to Instagram and Pinterest and are a great way to add interest to any room. Terrazzo tiles have flecks of glass and marble embedded within the tile. This is a fun way to introduce multiple colours into a small space without it over powering the room!
Large format tiles
In the bathroom we’re seeing more and more people attempt to replicate a spa within the home environment with natural materials and tranquil colours. With this in mind, we’re anticipating a surge in the popularity of large format tiles, especially those made from natural stone or with a marble effect.
Large format tiles give a luxurious finish and can help make a small room look bigger. They look particularly effective when used on both the walls and floor to give a cohesive look. Walk in shower cubicles also look great in this style.
