We’re almost halfway into 2018 and it’s clear that new tile trends of the year have emerged. Of course, it’s always important to keep in mind the particular needs and style of your home before incorporating a trend into your next tile project. Our team at Floor Coverings International Albuquerque and Santa Fe is always ready to help you find the right tile for your Albuquerque, Santa Fe home! Here’s three of our favorite current tile trends and suggestions on how to incorporate them into your own home:
1) Terrazzo Tile Flooring
Terrazzo is made from chips of marble, granite, or glass set into a cement base and polished to a smooth surface. Terrazzo gives you versatility since it’s made by mixing different elements together. In addition, it’s extremely durable, resistant to water, and won’t chip! This means it performs well in nearly any area of the house, including the kitchen and bathroom. It can be made from combinations of different materials and fun colors, which can give a room extra movement and vibrancy!
2) Ombre Tile Floors and Walls
Ombre has been a big color trend with hair and fabric, but it can also work well for tile flooring or walls. To create an ombre effect with tile, gradually transition from a lighter tone tile to a darker one, making the colors flow smoothly from one to another. You can get creative with how you transition the tiles to blend the colors together. Creating patterns or stripes with different shades and tones of colors can create a nice effect!
3) Soft Textured Tile Backsplash
It may sound basic, but tiles made with slight texture variations can add a beautiful level a detail to a room. Handmade tile, or tiles made to have a handmade appearance, can make common tile types have a more personalized appearance. For example, a plain white subway tile can look intriguing and high-end when made with subtle texture. These unique details help the tile stand out and gives the room special charm! This look can work for rustic or modern styles of rooms.
