When it comes to interior design, tiles are really having their moment in the spotlight. Visit any new bar, restaurant, shopping centre or hotel and the chances are you’ll see tiles being used to create striking trend-led looks, from industrial to vintage chic.
One of the biggest trends is for tiles that replicate the look of traditional encaustic patterned tiles. Featuring a patchwork of designs in either a monochrome colour palette or warm muted colours, these tiles capture the essence of sunnier climes and bring any space to life. And thanks to the launch of our new La Fayette range you can now recreate this on-trend look in your own home.
The large 60x60cm matte floor tiles are made from glazed porcelain, which makes them very durable and suitable for use throughout the home. Porcelain feature floors are particularly popular for hallways, where you can make a great first impression on your visitors whilst benefiting from the hard wearing, low maintenance properties of porcelain floor tiles that are suitable for high traffic areas. For a real wow factor you could also use these patterned tiles on walls, perhaps to create a feature wall in your dining room or a striking kitchen splashback
Each La Fayette tile comprises a patchwork of 16 smaller patterns with a hand painted quality, and the range is available in a choice of two colours. For those who want an authentic patterned feature floor reminiscent of the traditional tiles found in places such as Portugal, the Multi Colour option blends shades of muted yellow, blue, grey and beige for a warm finish that will look great against rustic wood furniture. For a more modern edge, the grey colour option gives kitchens, bathrooms, dining rooms or hallway floors a contemporary twist. To see the choice of colours for yourself, why not order a sample today?
If you’re using patterned tiles on your floor and wondering what wall tiles to team them with, why not try a simple tile in white or a solid colour that combines traditional style with contemporary design trends such as our Metro or Country wall tiles? Whilst both these tile styles nod to bygone eras, they’re also very contemporary and on-trend right now, making them the perfect partner for patterned feature floors.
One thing’s for sure, if you want to create real impact with your interior design then patterned tiles are a great option.
