Newest Tile Trends

I recently was invited to a tile seminar that displayed what’s hot and exciting in tile innovations for 2012. Here are some pictures of what caught my eye. Thought you may find the upcoming trends interesting.

 90% of the tiles produced today are porcelain.  They are usually heavier than ceramic and are made from a denser finer clay. This means they look great and are durable for the long-run.

Glass tiles create a beautiful look.  They can be used on a full shower wall, as a back splash or border.  Here you can see that some of the glass tiles are with mother of pearl, stone and metal.  Glass tiles can be paired with a plain larger tile to add instant texture and interest.  They could be placed behind a bar with down lighting to emphasize the graduated heights of the tile.
