Stylish tile trends and ideas
The Metro series consists of a collection of modern, versatile and contemporary bevelled brick tiles. They take their inspiration from the iconic look of the London Underground. With a variety of different colours, ranging from bright and zesty tones through to the gentle and hushed, you can create a stylish wall display that perfectly suits your taste. It will paint real character into your walls.
An extension of the brick collection, the Rustic metro tiles series has a unique aged effect. Similar in style to Laura Ashley’s Artisan range, they have a bumpy and warped surface. A relative of this collection is the Antique metro tiles selection. The retro crackled surface will add a texture finish to your walls.
A lot of people are going back to nature when it comes to tiling their homes. Natural stone brings a luxury and exclusive feel. The gorgeous veined patterns are completely unique, and are thousands of years in the making. Travertine tiles are a fantastic choice for walls. The soft beige tone adds a rich, warm and ambient feel. Alternatively, marble can bring a chic and contemporary look to the party, when combined with glass in an eye-catching mosaic format.
Linear tiles are a great way to break up a wall, and bring a crisp, cool appearance. The Brighton collection from British Ceramic Tile is a perfect example of how the modernistic linear effect can completely transform the look of a plain wall.
Alternatively, mosaic tiles give a sharp and snazzy look. They’re becoming increasingly popular throughout the UK; popping up in the homes of A-list celebrities and well-loved interior designers. And why not? They’re stylish, unique and they’re modern.
Not a one-trick pony
Tiles have long been associated with the kitchen and bathroom. But with hundreds of new designer tile ranges coming out each year, the fact of the matter is, tiles can cater for every room in the house. Realistic wood effect floor tiles are extremely versatile and look fantastic throughout hallways and living areas. When kitting out the bedroom, Buccino Tiles are particularly effective; having featured in Channel 4’s Grand Design Magazine.
