Top Kitchen Tile Trends for 2019
Making the Most of Space
If you only have a small area to cover, then using large tiles make the job cumbersome and means you’ll have to cut just about every tile you place. Hard work! But we can make things easier if we just take a step back and consider what we are doing. Smaller rectangular shapes in sizes such as 2×12 are ideal to make a small space like a backspash not only look fab but a breeze to redecorate. The eye is always drawn to the sink when you walk into a kitchen. If you want to make the most of this space, then think small rectangles and you’re on the right track.
Geometry in The Kitchen
Geometric shapes were all the rage in 2018, and this year looks set for that trend to continue. But now it’s time for hexagons to move over. The humble triangle is set to rule the roost this time around. For a kitchen backsplash, a triangle tile is perfect, fitting in nicely without overwhelming the area with patterns. We recommend that you use a single color or shade, but you can be bold by mixing and matching colors if you feel like it.
Time to Think Outside the Subway
The subway tile has been a mainstay of kitchens for a number of years now. The news is it’s still here. But it’s also time to think a little differently when it comes to using this classic tile. Laying them like bricks can work but why not get a look all of your own by putting them in a herringbone or chevron pattern instead of just a brick lay? Now that’s thinking outside of the norm. That’s why the subway makes it on to our list of the top kitchen tile trends of 2019.
Big Is Beautiful
When it comes to flooring, big is most definitely beautiful. The floor catches the eye as soon as you walk in, so why not make it look a million dollars? And making it look a million dollars without the same price tag is definitely within reach. You should look for large format tiles – 2’x4’ or similar large size to give that floor the look of timeless style. Don’t think that you need to be intricate on detail to have class and grace. The large tiles bring a kitchen to life.
Brickwork Does Work
If you are looking for a natural look in the kitchen, then you’ll be thrilled that brick is back! Using or exposing brick in a kitchen is bang on trend for 2019. It can be very earthy and yet contemporary. As we all look to nature for the fresh batch of inspiration, brick straddles two worlds, it’s both man made and organic. The red/brown hues set up a kitchen to have that warm and cosy feel. Entire walls can be filled with brick flowing smoothly out from a backsplash to great effect. Only brick can be use this way.
