5 Tile Trends We Love

So as some of you may know, my family has been in the home improvement business for almost 30 years.

The office has always been my second home. I grew up playing with cabinet samples and hardware and paint swatches so who knows… maybe that’s why I’m kinda obsessed with everything that has to do with home remodeling and decor. Which maybe doesn’t sound that bad to you, but if you ask my husband, I could literally just sit on the couch with a magnum of Cabernet and a box of Ferrero Rocher’s and watch HGTV for hoursssss. But any who….

The point that I’m trying to get across is, I see so many tile orders come in and out everyday. Some of the tile trends, I just honestly want them to go away. Like when a customer comes in and they want something that’s horrible, as a sales rep, you should just tell them it’s not in stock or something.

But then there are others, that are simply amazing. Yes they’re a newer trend, but there classic and lasting as well. And who doesn’t like that? Here are a few of my favorites.

 

HERRINGBONE

If you’re a Pinterest lover like myself, I’m sure you’ve seen this one around. It works in a variety of spaces whether it’s the kitchen backsplash or the flooring of a bathroom. It’s gorgeous and it’s interesting.

PATTERNS

We’ve also been seeing alot of patterned mosaics. Some are choosing  to use patterns on their bathroom walls while others use it as accent tile over the kitchen range. Either way, patterns make any room instantly chic and fun.

CEMENT

I would have to say I think this cement tile trend is definitely one of my favorites. It’s contemporary yet vintage at the same time. You can choose to go with a bolder color tile or you can find them in colors that are more soothing light blues and grays.

UP THE WALL

Why limit tile just to your backsplash? Use the whole wall! Have a small bathroom with no windows? We’ve seen people opt for a lighter tile that goes up the whole wall. By doing this, you bounce light and get the illusion of a larger bathroom.

METAL

The metal tile trend has been around for awhile. If you’re thinking about using some metallic accents, the trend will definitely stay around if you do it right.

Although there are tons and tons of great trends out there, these are just a few of my favorites.
