Tile has been a mainstay in home design for decades. It's no surprise that designers and builders have come up with innovative methods for making the material stand out. These styles have emerged as some of the top tile trends in 2017.
The Mermaid Look
If you can make any kind of product look like a mythical creature, 2017 is your year. Homeowners who like the feel of the ocean will love the fish scale tile scheme. A textured look is obtained by using varying shades of blue and aqua in the tiles.
The use of unpolished, low-sheen stone creates a rustic look. Perennially popular in pool and patio areas, natural stone has made an entrance into interior design. Natural stone comes in an assortment of earth tones colors and creates a striking look in the room.
Pastel bathroom tiles are still a big hit with homeowners. Light pink and mint green bring a warm or cool tone, respectively, to this functional space.
For those looking for an alternative to grandma's tile choices, greyscale is in. Using grey grout against white tiles, mixing geometric patterns, alternating colors, and combining techniques: look, we don't want to say 50 Shades, but there's a lot of grey going on in contemporary design.
Fans of the urban or industrial look might use beveled subway tile. This type of high gloss tile can be found in a variety of colors to create a truly unique surface. It can also work as an alternative to brick.
