Make a Statement

Ease into the Elemental

With winter on it’s way in, you’ll be spending less time in the great outdoors, and more time in your cosy home. Sometimes, those plain white tiles and grey grouting can make your home feel cold and lifeless, so why not revamp your space and bring a little mother nature in with organic trends?

 

Aqua-esthetic

2017 brought us an intense obsession with mermaids and their aesthetic, from their tails to hair and makeup, pastel and glittering ‘Mermaid Mania’ was everywhere. The decor industry was quick to capitilise and unveiled the mermaid wall, thankfully in more muted tones. Fast forward to 2019, and this trend is as popular as ever.

Fish scale or scallop tiles are a great addition to any space, whether you use them from floor to ceiling or in increments just above the basin.

A widely sought-after shape, Tile Styles has the resources to produce this beautiful shape that brings the element of water into your home, helping you create a seamless ‘flow’ of colour and texture in any space. Opt for shades of navy blue and teal to really capture the fluidity of this style.

50 Shades of Not Grey

There have been a number of unorthodox style trends cropping up over last year, one of them being colourful grouting. Interior decor gurus everywhere have abandoned the stale grey grout in favour of brighter, more vibrant hues that really pop.

Add a fun, graphic aesthetic to simple tiles or vamp up bespoke cut tiles with a burst of creativity! Mix darker, earthy toned tiles with gold grout for a whimsical, forest-esque feel that opens up a space at the same time.


Tone It Up

Sometimes, custom tiles just don’t quite ‘cut’ it. And when colourful grout fails to raise the bar, turn to tonal tiles.

Have your custom tiles cut in shades of the same colour, or, if you’re feeling bold, go for ombre with hues of two colours or more. This style is more popular for minimalists, thanks to how simple it is to achieve, but it is still a stunningly versatile option for when you feel you’re out of ideas or lacking simple creativity.

Bring in hues of orange and yellow to add life to any space without needing actual flames. Another tip: use off-cuts from previous jobs for an artistic flair!

With these stylish, eccentric trends, you won’t want to leave your gorgeous home this winter, and each style is easily upgraded when spring rolls around and you’re in need of a little sprucing!
