Trends for flooring

Don’t make the outdated choice when you update your floors – use these tile flooring trends to choose something durable and stylish that will stay in style the lifetime of your floor.

In self-centred thoughts, we do like the idea of a new floor – or any new home decor, for that matter!

There’s a whole lot going on in the flooring industry right now, but if you ask us, tile is where it’s at. Not only are there tons of modern, stylish tile trends to choose from, but tile itself is trending in a big way.

Solid, durable tile flooring has always been a staple in Aussie homes, but it is coming back stronger than ever. Due to advancing technologies, tile can now mimic not only the look of natural stone but also hardwood, fabrics and more.

The tile business is booming, and you can expect to see more and more homeowners choose tile over other surfaces. Here’s a look at what’s trending in tile flooring this year.

2018 Trending Tile Looks

The most incredible innovation in tile flooring is its ability to realistically mimic countless natural and man-made materials. This is the most prominent tile flooring trend in 2018 and, likely, the years to come.

Below, you’ll see new, contemporary tile looks that you may not even believe are tile. Get ready to see how tile has become the ultimate master of disguise.

Wood-Look Tile

We say wood-look plank tiles are only building momentum in regards to popularity. The style is quickly becoming a whole-house norm, meaning it’s not just for kitchens and bathrooms, but also living rooms, bedrooms and more.

Will they last? Absolutely! Tile is the most durable flooring option on the market and combining that durability with the look of natural hardwood is a combo that is hard to beat.

Marble-Look Tile

The classic, timeless, elegant look of marble has been around for centuries and, in 2018, it is once again back in a big way.

Natural marble is soft and porous, susceptible to rings and challenging to keep clean. That’s the reason so many homeowners choose granite (for their counters) and tile (for their floors) instead of natural marble.

Marble (or a marble lookalike) will always show elegance, be classy and seem expensive. Expect to see this upscaling trend for decades to come.

Tile Shapes

While there are wonderful options like Mixed Width Tiles and Wood-style flooring, home and business owners do still look at traditional square, rectangular and plank tiles and choosing unique shapes to stand out. That doesn’t mean boring, straight patterns, it can also mean very luxurious styles and combinations to make the room pop. It all comes down to preference & necessity for the room itself and you never know what will be the perfect product until you try it!

There are plenty of different, unique options trending that will likely stick around for years to come, which means your possibilities are endless. And you know, with tile, your floor will last so be sure the style does too!
