Let’s take a look at flooring trends for 2017.
Large sizes in commercial and residential spaces
One of the trends that will dominate is large size tiles in commercial and residential interiors. The sizes 60cm x 120cm and 80cm x 120cm are most preferred as they provide a seamless look to the floors and reduce the number of joints on the floor. There are some options that are larger, but those come with their own limitations related to handling and installation apart from managing a slight bend, which is inherent in ceramics.
Polished double charge slabs
Today polished double charge slabs in matte or rustic finish are in demand. Marble, wood, other natural stone themes dominate the portfolio in varied finishes like highly reflective and soft satin. The international trend of creating beautiful flow in the floor decoration needs such coordinated decor elements.
Natural, pastel shades rule
Natural, real and warm tones are hue inspirations that will make waves this year. More earthy looking colours give the look and feel of nature. It provides freshness with the right amount of warmth.
Cement, wood and Narita stone leading themes
Opt for natural looking stone and wood tiles, which give your home a rustic and a distinctive look. They are also cost effective, since natural stone and wood are expensive and difficult to maintain.
Patterns and textures break the monotony
Standing out is an evergreen trend. The easiest way to do this – Use beautiful carpet type geometric patterns to break the monotony of regular patterned floors.
Bright interiors in white
Tiles in white give the illusion of spaciousness and the versatility to match with any kind of decor. While making a decision on flooring options, one should always remember that tiles are very durable while being easy to install and maintain. Further, an ideal home is one which connects all spaces; so choose a tile theme (colour, motif and pattern), which synchronises with your interiors.
