The open weave of linen, the grain of wood, a beautiful raised damask – the tactile feel and texture surrounds us but isn’t necessarily what you think of when you think tile. Keep your eyes open and you will begin to spot one of the hottest trends of 2014!
Tiles that have the look of wood have been popular for a few years now. Digital printing technology allows suppliers to simulate the look and patina of aged or reclaimed wood. This tile option is great for people who love the look of wood, but hesitate to install wood because they are concerned about wear.
Lately, manufacturers are also bringing the look and “feel” of fabric to tile as well. The Fibra Series brings the look of linen to tile. This very modern tile looks great on both floors and walls.
Because these products are made of porcelain, they require minimal maintenance. It is the perfect option for an entryway or high traffic area. It’s dog friendly too!
Of course you can also add texture by using natural stone of varying widths. Our 3-D Mesh Mount Stack tile creates an interesting visual element to any room with its raised texture. It is available in six travertine combinations, one marble, and two finishes. Imagine this amazing stone as a focal wall, above a fireplace, or used in a commercial setting.
Texture is hot in tile these days. We bet you see it in restaurants, hotels and other commercial spaces, already. But it will start popping up all over in residential spaces as well. Start noticing this great new trend. Find the Arizona Tile store nearest you to see and feel these textured tiles for yourself!
