Move over white subway tiles, we’re introducing a whole raft of new kids on the decorating block; there’s hexagon, finger tiles, mosaic and stone and they’re rocking a kaleidoscope of colours and textures. We check out some of the latest looks snaking their way across walls and floors.
Mixed geometrics: Geometric shapes made their mark in 2019, but they’re not going anywhere in a hurry. In fact, they’re actually getting more clever and creative than ever before with trapezoid, rhombus and diamond-shaped tiles hitting the homewares sphere.
Pencils and pennies: Pencil tiles or finger tiles – narrow rectangular tiles – are proving popular as accents on walls, while penny tiles – small coin-shaped tiles laid in sheets – are being used for borders, niches, accent strips or whole walls to add sparkle, depth and interest.
Industrial chic: Concrete and stone look tiles are a sleek, low maintenance, easily-installed alternative to actual concrete and stone, pairing beautifully with matte black fittings.
Moroccan magic: Morocco is famed for its vibrant colours and intricate designs, so Moroccan tiles add an exotic touch to the room, either as a wall or floor covering.
Darks arts: Just like the little black dress, a black bathroom is ultra chic. The dark tones work surprisingly well in small spaces and textured tiles add a sense of drama.
