Choosing colours, shapes, patterns and styles to suit your home can feel like an overwhelming task, especially with inspiration everywhere on social media, in tile showrooms and on home renovation shows. Talk about exhausting!
So if you’ve chosen 2021 as your year to start home renovations or even build a home of your own, we’d like to help you on your journey with a comprehensive list of flooring tile ideas for your home.
Looks & Styles
1. STONE LOOK TILES
Stone look tiles are the sophisticated, durable, low maintenance and on trend flooring solution that suits almost every home style. These tiles are completely versatile, making them perfect for use in your kitchen, bathroom and throughout the home.
Made from ceramic or porcelain, these tiles feature the characteristics of stone without the downfalls of natural stone tiles. You can see the simple beauty of the AT. Choice tiles.
2. WOOD LOOK TILES
Much like stone look tiles, wood look tiles are in vogue thanks to their low maintenance and durability, with technology improving the realism of these tiles to a point where it’s hard to tell the difference between the real deal and the replica.
3. ENCAUSTIC TILES
If you want to bring colour, dimension and wow factor to a space, consider using encaustic style tiles like the Azulej Grigio Cubo, which is featured on the floor and wall of the stunning project at St Vincent’s Residence.
Use one pattern of encaustic tiles across your bathroom or water closet floor for impact or get creative by pairing encaustic tiles (like the Art Nouveau Padua Black) with complimenting monochromatic tiles to create a unique design on your floor.
4. PINK TILES
Don’t knock the idea of pink tiles until you view the range at Myaree Ceramics. Pink tiles are a great way to soften a room, with various pink hues available to suit any modern home.
5. WHITE TILES
The timeless yet modern look of white tiles will ensure they remain on-trend for many years to come, but white doesn’t have to be plain or ‘boring’.
Pair the white tiles of different textures and finishes for an elevated chic look or get inspired by the original Terrazzo floors in Italy with the Medley Classic White. You can also combine multiple patterned and solid coloured tiles together like above.
6. BLUE HUES
If you want to add a more vivid colour to your flooring, we’re tipping blue as the must-have flooring colour.
Opt for a grey-blue colour tone for a style that will stay in-vogue a little longer like the Stromboli Glassy Blue, or choose the Picasso Palm Beach Blue to match the encaustic style tile trend with blue hues for bathroom floor tiles you can’t miss.
Layouts & Sizes
7. LARGE FORMAT
If your home style is contemporary and minimalist, then large format tiles are the trend you need in your home for 2021. The large tile size results in less joints, giving an uninterrupted look and making the floor surface much easier to clean.
To maximise this look and pair it with other 2021 trends, opt for stone look or concrete look tiles in grey hues.
8. HERRINGBONE LAYOUT
Herringbone is a popular tile layout used in kitchen splashbacks and bathrooms, but it also looks stunning on a floor tile.
The above Bejmat Lake Gloss and Bejmat Biscuit Matt tiles combines the beauty of the herringbone pattern with the natural aesthetics of terracotta look tiles, making it a great choice for added interest areas.
9. HEXAGONAL TILES
If you want to stick to more a monochromatic colour tone on your flooring while adding dimension and variation, using an unusually shaped floor tile like a hexagonal tile can be an effective solution.
We love tiles like the Heritage Carbon floor tile, which has a natural finish and tonal variation.
10. SUBWAY TILES
Subway tiles are a timeless and much-loved tile type that will continue their popularity into 2021. These tiles, most commonly measuring 75mm x 150mm, are available in classic white and coloured variations.
