What are the trends in bathroom tiles? The palette is mostly neutral, sophisticated and balanced equally between warm and cool tones with a heavy emphasis on greys and muted colours.Bathroom Tiles Johannesburg
Patterned tiles continue to be popular in 2014, but with a marked difference – they’re mismatched. The vintage look is popular but a trend that is seeing the most love is Boho: a slightly softer look. Try to recreate this style with ever-so-slightly faded ceramic tiles in complementing shades.
Create an eclectic feel by going for a mismatch effect. Apply tiles to walls for a fresh feel and to accentuate a room.
We all love the look of hardwood flooring, but most contractors say it has no place in a moist bathroom. Well, there’s wood-look ceramic tiles! Problem solved!
The tile industry has gotten really creative at manufacturing tiles out of one material to look like another material and a perfect example of this porcelain tile made to look like real hardwood. It looks fabulous!
Available in a range of different sized ‘planks’, the tile is much easier to care for than real wood. And porcelain’s natural resistance to moisture makes it an appropriate material for bathroom applications.
Geometric shapes such as hexagons and fashion inspired herringbone patterns to offer a fresh and bold design – outside the rectangular or square box. Many tiles have a very modern feel to them and should only be added to houses that reflect this same look. This trend can also work well mixed with other styles, such as eclectic and 1960s vintage for a fusion style.
The Beveled subway tile and 3D tile adds dimension, depth and interest to a basic geometric shape. Look for large tiles scored to look like smaller tiles.
LIVING WALLS (NOTHING TO DO WITH TILES!)
They are more of a rarity at this time, but when done right ‘living walls’ look breathtaking. Living Walls are simply stunning, adding vibrancy and tangible life to the bathroom, which would be difficult to achieve in any other way. The main concern people may have regarding living walls is the watering of them.
We’re seeing these living walls drawn into more and more room designs, and expect this trend to continue.
