New floor tiles are the perfect way to give your home style a thorough update
Are you looking to give your home a style reset alongside your annual spring clean? A sure-fire way to grant any space an instant face-lift is by replacing your flooring with new floor tiles. When we’re thinking of giving our homes a new look, walls and floors and often overlooked in favour of new furnishings and accessories. There is a quick-fix appeal of refreshing your living room with a new throw or updating your bathroom with a set of fluffy new towels. But there is no substitute for truly uplifting the foundation of your home – your floors – with a style overhaul.
Bring the outdoors indoors with natural finish tiles
One concept that is taking the interior design world by storm in 2019 is ‘bringing the outdoors indoors’. More and more people are looking to incorporate the natural beauty of the outside world in to their homes, and with good reason. The popularity of natural finishes owes a debt to the Scandinavian concept of ‘Hygge’ – which refers to cosiness. With minimalist interiors on the rise, natural shapes and textures help to breathe new life in to otherwise sterile spaces.
Wood effect tiles
If you want the look and feel of natural timber in your home, without any of the maintenance, consider wood effect tiles. The appetite for using porcelain wood effect tiles in the home is growing, and it isn’t hard to see why. Well-made wood effect tiles are indistinguishable from real wood. The tiles perfectly replicate the grain of real wood with variations in pattern, texture and colour. Choose a distressed wood style for a flawless rustic finish. If you prefer a classical look, choose a polished tile and lay them in a parquet style. Crown Tiles carry an extensive wood-effect collection to suit any space.
Natural stone tiles
With their unpredictable array of colours and textures, natural stone tiles are one of the finest design gifts that nature has to offer. The visual interest created by stone’s idiosyncrasies is a perfect complement to the clean geometry of modern interior design. Matching interior and exterior stone tiles draws the eye beyond the threshold of your home and makes any room appear much larger.
Invite subtle colour with new neutral tiles
The colour trend of the year is the ‘new neutral’. This refers to a palette of pinks, lilacs and duck-egg greens and blues. These delicate shades are ideal for introducing subtle colour in to a room. Inspired by the Scandi trend in interior design, ‘new neutrals’ work perfectly to soften minimalist spaces. Pastel tones are ideal for brightening a room, so if you’re looking to maximise a space, muted neutral wall tiles are perfect. Use grey-toned blues to create a calming influence, or dusty roses for a feminine feel.
Make a statement with patterned tiles
Patterned tiles are the perfect way to bring character to a room that is feeling a little stale. Moroccan-inspired tiles have an enduring popularity and introduce the influence of sunnier climes to a space. Kitsch and retro patterned tiles are ideal statement flooring and bring with them a sense of nostalgic charm.
Whatever your design plans, renovating from the ground up is a sure-fire way to change the look and feel of a space. We hope these tile trends inspire you to bring the joys of spring to your home.
