As December draws to a close, it’s time to start planning your bathroom and kitchen renovations for the New Year. Before choosing the tiles to compliment your design, why not take inspiration from the upcoming tile trends that are expected be big in 2020? We’ve scoured the new ranges of our leading suppliers, to bring you the latest tile trends ahead of the New Year.
Here’s our pick of the top tile trends for 2020
Patterned tiles are making a comeback this year and can help add interest to any room. Play with vintage patterns, Moroccan prints or create your own design using contrasting colours. The beauty of this trend is it’s so versatile and limited only by your imagination. Be bold, push the boundaries and create something unique that reflects your personality.
We’re expecting unusual shaped tiles to be big in 2020. Geometric shapes and hexagons in particular, will be extremely popular and can help add a modern twist to any home. For an eye-catching look, fish scale tiles are an excellent choice, particularly in marine inspired colours. If you’re nervous to try this trend, why not test the waters and just tile a feature wall.
Black and white
Many customers are fearful of incorporating black into their interior design projects, because they worry it will make the room feel smaller. In actual fact, black can help create depth and give the impression of more space. In 2020, black is expected to be a key colour in bathroom and kitchen décor. When paired with white fixtures and fittings this classic colour combination can be sleek and stylish and add some drama to the room.
Unusual tile laying patterns
You’ll be pleased to hear metro tiles are here to stay, but why not try a unique spin on this popular trend? We’re seeing more and more people choose innovative laying patterns, including chevron, basket weave and herringbone. Vertical layouts are also going to be big in 2020, which is great if you’re trying give the impression of a higher ceiling. For a statement look that will help emphasise the laying pattern, you could try using a contrasting grout colour.
Tile colours inspired by nature
Every year Pantone and Dulux announce their ‘colour of the year’, which play an integral role in shaping interior décor trends for the upcoming seasons. This year both colours, Classic Blue and Tranquil Dawn are inspired by nature and are said to inspire feelings of calm and tranquillity. We stock tiles in similar shades of blue and green, so you can stay up to date with the latest colour trends.
