In recent years tile has totally taken off, easy to maintain, perfectly suited to our climate in Ireland, but also very much on trend. We are seeing a lot of designers and customers using wood effect tiles to beautifully replicate the hottest wood floor looks.
This year sees an emphasis on large wood-look planks, we are also seeing interesting eye-catching patterns, shapes and textures. One of the most popular new trends is mixing wood tile sizes, giving the look of reclaimed flooring.
This trend is enhanced using wood tiles that have a number textures and finishes. Various tiles have different levels of texture from subtle wire brushed effects to a more distressed wood-look tile that appears to have been through a lot of wear and tear, giving a reclaimed, aged, antique look.
This look really suits larger floor areas, where you can really appreciate the mix of sizes.
