Tile Trend watch Autumn / Winter 2018! Baked Tiles buyers and designers head to Italy!
Keeping an eye and sometimes predicting up and coming trends are one of the things the team at Baked Tiles really love! We are always found with our noses buried in interior magazines from all over the world and if you knew how much time we spend stalking leading architects and designers online to find that little thread of a design spark, you would wonder how we have enough time to get into work each day!
So as part of our pledge to our customers to make sure we have the most exciting products available, our designers have been out to Europe’s leading tile and bathroom show in Bologna Italy ….. let’s have a little look at some of the photos they have brought back to share.
Sometimes the most inspiring things can be found in the most uninspiring settings……36 mega halls of tiles and bathroom stands from both artisan and large manufacturers. Best get the comfy shoes on…it’s going to be a marathon!
Marble is once again big news, but in a softer more antiqued style. High gloss surfaces that have been quite en-vogue are being replaced by honed, soft sheen or matt finishes, giving you the glamour without the bling. This might well be a trend we embrace next year?
It’s all in the detail.
Decorative tiles are still holding centre stage, with even many typical Italian factories now combining their simple large format porcelain ranges with ‘hand-made’ looking wall tiles that add a wonderful textural quality and often sumptuous glazes to the mix.
Porcelain wood ranges have been very popular for a little time now and whilst unusual products like our chipboard are still proving to be a hit with designers and adventurous homeowners alike, we have been on the look out for an inspiring yet price conscious range of woods. And we have found them. Available in planks and chevrons this great range starts at just £47.50m2 plus vat! And their uses are as broad as your imagination.
All shapes and sizes!
We have been championing our wonderful range of 3D tiles over the last few months and we are delighted to see so many people now using them in their homes. We love them so much we have decided to expand the range and we will be adding more product over the next few weeks. Here is a sneaky peak of some of the fabulous ranges we will be offering!
Move over grey and make way for colour!
Colour is one buzz word we just can’t ignore. Even if you are a big fan of grey, pepping it up with a splash of colour is definitely the way to go this season! Furthermore, we hope to present you with a range of coloured tiles in not only traditional formats like the brick or square tiles, but in a wonderful array of shapes too! Baked Tiles are certainly here to let you bring the personality out in your home!
