Tile Trends of 2016


Here at Tiles 2 Go we have witnessed many tiling trends this year, from material to colour, and design to mosaic. Here is our guide to the top tile trends of the year.

Popular styles in the kitchen

Natural stone tiles have been very popular this year in the kitchen for both floor and wall tiles. The look tends to compliment most kitchen designs and themes including both contemporary and traditional kitchens. A natural stone finish to the splashback can help to promote natural colours, texture, and is easy to maintain, keeping the areas around both the sink and the oven clean. The tactile nature of natural stone has also promoted its popularity for kitchen tile choices.

Popular styles in the bathroom

Solid colours, with an almost texture-less quality has been a big part of bathroom design this year. With natural colours and shades, larger tiles used as floor tiles in medium to larger sized bathrooms, have also been incredibly popular with people preferring the effect of the larger tiles to regular sized tiles. Homeowners and property developers alike have also been opting for the same material and colour tiles for both the floors and the walls within the bathroom, creating an almost masonry quality.

Popular colours of 2016

2016 has seen neutral, natural colours topping the popular colour trends. With a larger range of suitable colours to pair with, natural and neutral colours such as browns, beiges and creams offer homeowners a chance to renovate their kitchen or bathroom with future changes in mind, meaning that a future tile change may not be necessary when aiming to breathe new life into their bathroom or kitchen by changing the colour scheme. This adaptability has probably been the deciding factor fro many homes,

Popular designs of 2016

Natural stones have been popular, possibly matching with the neutral and natural colour theme discussed above. Also, tiles that look like wood have made it into the popular trend list with the aesthetic appeal of hard wood, but the vital waterproofing provided by tiles.
