Top Tile Trends – Our Summer 2017 Half Year Roundup

Friday 2 June 2017, Written by Laura Tompkins Tags: Trends, Makeover, Victorian Flooring, New Products

At the end of 2016 we gave you our Top 4 Tile Trends for 2017. We thought this week we’d take a look over the last 6 months to see how our predictions are shaping up and find out what’s popular with customers...

Jewel Like Tones – Greenery

There’s absolutely no denying the greenery trend is still at large. With gorgeous shades like Jade BreezeVictorian Green and Palm Green available from the Artworks collection we have plenty of jewel like tones on offer.

For just a splash of greenery try a strip of Mosaics, we love Chanda which is new to the Mosaics collection and makes for a beautiful splashback. Its iridescent finish is perfect for adding a little bit of opulence to your kitchen.

In muted hues, greenery is a great alternative to white. Just take a look at this kitchen using Mint brick tiles from the Winchester Tile Company.


You may have seen last week’s inspiration page where we looked through tile installations that have been shared with us on Instagram. If not you can check out the post here. You will see just how many people are embracing the patterned tile trend, with homeowners opting for Odyssey and Victorian Floor Tiles in kitchens, bathrooms and hallways.

Throughout the year our fantastic photographer has been on plenty of location shoots to take photos of our Victorian Floor Tile collection. Here are a couple of our favourites.

We’ve also launched our new decorative Artisan bricks to the Winchester Tile Company. With intricate yet subtle detailing these tiles are great for those looking to add some interest to a lacklustre interior

Creative Tiling Patterns

We’re big supporters of this trend and love seeing all the different tile patterns people opt for in their homes. We even wrote this guide to show you all the different ways you can lay tiles! We’re still seeing plenty of herringbone as well as stack bond and grid layouts and some unusual and quirky styles like this one below:

Large Format – Class and Scale

Many homeowners are still opting for large format tiles in their homes, they look great on walls and floors, as laying large tiles together reduces the amount of grout lines, creating a seamless effect with nothing to distract the eye when you enter a room. We love this kitchen which uses Earthworks Natural Stone floor tiles, hardwearing and beautiful for years to come.
