Tile isn’t all pale beige anymore. Today’s new colors are richer and somewhat deeper, and there are exciting looks in surface texture and edge treatments. Tile is appearing in larger sizes, too, so that it’s easier than ever to make a dramatic statement you’ll love. Check with us about these hot new tile trends:
Sophisticated products that are inviting yet invincible—and for the busiest homes, very durable porcelain tile that can also hold up in commercial settings.
Longer tile planks—4×24 and 6×24 are two examples.
Antiqued edges that give an elegantly rustic look, resembling stone flooring of the Old Country.
Accent tiles that sparkle and shine, like jewelry that sets off a beautiful outfit; these tiles feature mosaic inserts of glass, metallics, and stone.
Glazed porcelain in a wider range of rich, earthy palettes.
Surface and texture variations that mimic the natural variations of stone or wood.
Multi-layered glazing processes that give immense depth of texture and color, strong veining, and realistic effect.
Tile that looks like wood.
Mixed surface looks combining old and new, organic and edgy—such as tile that looks like a cross between stained concrete and textured fabric, or between stylized wood and stone.
