Tile trends for 2015: create a stunning interior with porcelain tiles
Porcelain tiles are timeless, stylish and elegant. They lend their appeal to a wide variety of spaces —both residential and commercial — and a range of styles and designs means that any modern, contemporary or retro interior design can only be enhanced with the choice of porcelain tiles.
Porcelain tiles have a number of features which make them an ideal choice from a practical point of view. They are hardwearing and durable and are especially appropriate in high-traffic areas, particularly as they are resistant to moisture. Porcelain tiles are highly resistant to scratches and stains; they will also resist attack from harsh cleaning agents.
At Square Foot Ceramics we source an outstanding collection of porcelain tiles from accredited factories worldwide. The knowledge and expertise of our projects team is highly valued by our interior design and architect clients to assist in creating interiors which are visually appealing, creative and versatile.
Porcelain tiles, in designs spanning classic and retro to modern and contemporary styles, will all be in vogue in 2015 and our huge collection will meet every design need. The variety of colours, finishes and sizes means that, whatever the space, porcelain tiles for the floor or wall will make a stylish design statement.
A design effect referencing either traditional or new materials is easily accomplished using porcelain tiles. Stone-effect porcelain tiles for example, will have all the shade variations and textural appeal of natural stone in an easy-to-maintain floor. A chic, modern interior will be enhanced by our collection of new Caserta porcelain tiles, with understated colours and muted shade variations.
The trend for wood-effect floors looks set to continue in 2015 and porcelain tiles can cater for every look, whether dark mahogany, warm maple wood or a pale sun-bleached effect, reminiscent of driftwood on the beach.
Porcelain tiles are also perfect for walls and the trend for the retro ‘subway' design shows no sign of waning this year. Polished porcelain tiles have excellent light-diffusing properties, making them an ideal choice especially where space or light is limited. The Perugia collection will meet the retro subway vibe perfectly and of course can be laid in different design patterns to make a real style statement.
Natural porcelain tiles for walls, like their flooring counterparts, are also easy to maintain which makes them a perfect choice for kitchens, bathrooms and wet rooms. Their polished, reflective finish will alter throughout the day, depending on the light conditions, so that subtle variations can be enjoyed.
Whether following this year's trends or creating a particular effect, the project team at Square Foot Ceramics can offer a wealth of expertise and technical knowledge to bring your project to a successful conclusion.
In addition to porcelain tiles we also supply slate and other natural stone products, as well as high quality ceramic surfaces.
