Trendy Tiles that are taking the Designing world by a storm in 2021
Want to give your home a quick and affordable yet impactful makeover? Swapping out your old tiles with any of these trendy ones will breathe new life into your space. Wondering where to find the best tiling experts? We are just a call away.
Let’s have a look at the trendiest tiles.
Terracotta tiles impart a warm tone, earthy feel, and rugged texture to the flooring which has rustic chic undertones. They are a modern and uber-stylish way to celebrate our roots. The earthy tones of terracotta play beautifully with neutral beige and white as well as muted tones of peach, pink, mustard, red, and cerulean blue. They are perfect to complement bohemian, coastal, and minimal style interiors.
Natural marble stone exudes opulence and luxury. Unfortunately, the delicate natural stone is prone to cracking. Its porous nature makes it susceptible to staining and it calls for high maintenance. Plus, it doesn’t come cheap (to put it lightly).
The solution? Marble tiles. They emulate the look of marble flawlessly and sometimes they even look better than the real thing. The best part is that they are super easy to maintain and relatively affordable.
If extravagance (on a budget!) is what you are looking for then these stunners are a must-have. The high-shine, metallic finish imparts an ethereal glow to your space and stands as a statement on its own. Keep the interiors minimal and clutter-free to let the tiles do all the talking.
They say trends come back and terrazzo is a living example. The flooring style has been in use for a few centuries now and they are back. The speckled tiles are delightful and add a sense of fun and cheerfulness to the interiors. Modern terrazzo tiles can be found in neutral colors with bases of grey, black or white that are speckled with contracting neutrals.
