Tile trends you will love in 2019

We are getting more and more bold with our choice of tiles when we are renovating...no more plain tiles to play it safe! 

In 2019 there are so many fantastic styles to give your home some individuality and personality, so we choose some of our very favourite styles to give you some serious tile inspiration!


Lily pad tiles

If you want to have the most up to date tiles in 2019, then go for Lily pad tiles. These are really popular in the bathroom in deep blues and greens, but also look great in a neutral kitchen. If you love the look but are not quite brave enough for the strong colour, go for a light grey which will blend into a neutral space.

We love this bathroom by yvonne_loves_paris_and_kit on Instagram. These modern tiles look so striking in this Victorian style of bathroom. A perfect example of how to embrace a trend whilst still looking classic. 

This Instagram account has some other beautiful tiles all over their home, so well worth checking out!

Herringbone tiles

The herringbone pattern of tile has been popular for the past few years, and continues to dominate. Popular in so many different colours and finishes, it looks amazing when contrasted with a large plain rectangular tile. This isn't about colour but different patterns working so well together.

We adore this marble tile from Mandarin Stone, which is something a bit different to the grey marble that has been so fashionable over the past few years. It's so beautiful, classy and effective in this bathroom.

Concrete effect tiles

The industrial trend is not going anywhere and is so popular all over the home. Beautiful concrete floors, brass taps, Crittall style doors and statement lighting really completes the look. 

Concrete flooring is an expensive option and also requires maintenance, so it's not for everyone. If you unsure about a poured concrete floor, then large format concrete effect tiles are a great option. We totally love the look created by @the_house_acc on Instagram - it's a nod to the industrial trend whilst still looking super homely.

Penny tiles

The Victorian style of tiles are making a huge comeback and look amazing on anything from splashbacks to fireplaces, however we really do love them on the floor. What is so fun about penny tiles is that you can use them to add a bit of personality too, like this kitchen floor from thehousethatblackbuilt on Instagram.

Penny tiles work really well combined with another style of tile too, like a metro tile, or like this image where the white tiles look so striking with the black border.

Pinks and corals

With Pantone announcing Living Coral as colour of the year in 2019, we have seen this colour influence the tile market. We think it looks particularly striking in the bathroom as a splashback or in the shower area. If you want to go for it in the kitchen, a slightly paler pink can look stunning.

Coral is so modern mixed with black and copper and lends itself to small format tiles for a really striking look, like the tiles below.

Patterned tiles

You might be lucky enough to live in a property where you peel back a carpet and find some amazing Victorian tiles that can be restored. But you can also get some stunning patterned tiles which look amazing in a hallway, like these ones from hannahandhome on Instagram. 

They create a real focal point without being too dominating and look wonderful against the dark front door. These would also look amazing around a fireplace too!
