Tiling Tips & Trends
Large-format tiles are constantly evolving. When it comes to today’s residential and commercial applications, larger tile sizes are all the rage—making for unique stylish designs. We are seeing opportunities for tile ‘feature walls’ and a lot of great dimensional tile options for that application. Large-format tiles have gone beyond 12×24 inches. We are seeing 40×120 inches, and in some cases, even larger.
Outdoor porcelain pavers are becoming quite the trend, especially in mountain regions. Porcelain pavers are frost-resistant, skid-resistant, durable, and easy to clean. Pavers offer a range of patterns, textures, and larger sizes for your driveway, walkway, patio, and more.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have your whole palette picked out for you, including paint and grout? Well, look no further! Companies have been successful in creating package deals for their clients. These include wall and flooring materials, paint and grout to match, and even a decorative tile to give you a little “bling,” all in one. These palettes are enriched with vibrant colors and oversized formats devised to meet the continuing needs of design and complete your look in one simple step.
Remember how this year was the “year of the hex?” Well, now we are cutting those hexes into triangles! Much as the same way lines have meaning, shapes have meaning too. Shapes have an endless variety of characteristics, each communicating different messages to your audience. So next time you think “hex,” think outside the “box” and try a triangle!
