Our friends at Beaumont share what they have identified to be the top tile design trends for 2017, to inspire your next home makeover

Beaumont Tiles Communications & Design Specialist Christie Wood says that “as variations in tiles abound in terms of shapes, sizes, forms and colours – it’s not necessarily a type of tile that’s dominating trends, it’s how they are put together and the ambiance and emotion they create.”

Intrigued by this, we asked Christie for a few examples of such trends. Here’s what she shared with us:

Earth

Tile trends Earth - Beaumont Tiles

“This trend may be designed by man but has the earth very much at its heart. It’s a return to nature, the original masterpiece, where you surround yourself with the art of the ages. The stone look is very big in this trend and using natural tones that actually bring the outdoors inside.”

Raw

“We’re moving from the industrial trend into a rawer, unconventional ambience where imperfection (often hidden or disguised) is being brought to the fore. Raw is about items that are found or unearthed and been naturally affected over time, they have character and age. For example you may be renovating a home and come across a beautiful fireplace – it’s about stripping  it back to what it once was, and celebrating the beauty of it.”

 

Formation

Tile Trends Formations - Beaumont Tiles

“Formation is the materialisation of a concept into a design. It’s where surfaces are shaped, moulded and fashioned with the eye of the designer. They are laid out to capture light, shade or to create a transition to carry the eye. Each piece has its own contour or shape to create pattern with a myriad of applications.”

Monochrome

“Black and white makes a classic entrance but its extrovert temperament runs stripes all over the rest. Shades of grey soften the hard edges, and metallic embellishments are the finale to completing the luxurious look. The new monochrome encompasses all shades of grey too. Monochrome is a confident contrast that people feel good and comfortable about.”

Burst

“Don’t hold back; let it burst out in colourful and contrasting energy! Like a curator’s enthusiasm for exquisite pieces, surround yourself with joyful style choices. Multiple textures, colours, and materials are combined in seemingly random composition to make a room pop. Burst is all about splashes of the eccentric and idiosyncratic to create positive and vibrant spaces that ooze personality.”
