The Biggest Tile Trends for 2018

Tile your space with these chic looks that we predict will be huge this year

When choosing tiles for your space in 2018, you will see the general trends involve classic looks with a modern twist. From classic tiles styled in eye-catching patterns to unexpected materials and more contemporary shapes, these are the trends that we believe will take off this year.

Kitchen: subway tiles styled with herringbone pattern

The classic subway tile is an old favourite that will never go out of style, even after being one of the main interior design stars in the past couple of years. The new twist is simply using an interesting pattern, different from the traditional stacked pattern, so to create a feature wall that you will love for many years to come.

The visual impact of a herringbone tile pattern is second to none. Named for the shape of a herringbone skeleton, this pattern is created by laying each subway tile at 90 degrees to the tile beside it. We are seeing this pattern in the kitchen along the splashback, where it creates an eye-catching feature wall.

Bathroom walls: hexagonal tiles

Hex tiles have been increasingly popular, so we expect to see new variations of them – new colours, textures, sizes, and colour combinations. To make these beautiful tiles stand out, we suggest pairing a deep colour with light grouting (or vice-versa) and tile behind the vanity to create a bold feature wall. Or, go with a more muted contrast from floor to ceiling for a simple, elegant look. 2018 is the year of tiling with real visual impact, and we expect to see this bold, modern look at the head of the pack.

Bathroom floors: 60×60 tiles with stone look

A classic 60×60 tile makes smaller bathrooms look like they go on forever!  In 2018 we expect to see plenty of these versatile tiles, particularly in a modern stone or cement looks. These earthy, natural look tiles go beautifully alongside natural wood and sleek metal finishes.
