Top 3 Tile Trends for 2016

Tiles are such a versatile medium that you can find a color and style that matches whatever your taste or home decor scheme. Tiles never seem to go out of style from year to the next. Each year, however, people are drawn to different colors and styles. Take a look at the trending styles for this year. Your bathroom or kitchen may be begging you for a renovation and tile is sure to fill the bill.

1. Fragments - Rather than a uniform design of square tiles, try mixing together various geometric shapes to create a hodgepodge of shapes that flow together to create a fresh, modern look. Try picking three neutral tones or two complementary colors and a neutral.

2. Brick - Brick never goes out of style. Using real brick, however, can cost a fortune and cause your home to be disorganized for quite some time as the work is done. Using a brick-like tile will not only give you that warm, rustic look, but will also be much easier to keep clean and new-looking. Even better, you can get this look quickly.

3. Chevron - Combine patterns that are inspired by centuries-old designs traditionally created in wood, stone or resin and you will feel like you have stepped back into the Middle Ages. Imagine a floor or wall that takes you on a time traveling experience every time you enter your kitchen or living room. Guests may never want to go home once they are settled in.

Check out these and the other tile styles available today. You could be feeling like you have a whole new room by the time we are done. Any look from the ancient past to modern day sleek can be yours inexpensively.
