Mosaic tiles have been popular since ancient times. In 2015, these patterned tiles extend beyond the traditional kitchen backsplash to your floors, walls, and other parts of the home—the bathroom in particular. Inspiration is everywhere, and homeowners looking to implement this tile trend can find ideas from the past and present and from all over the world—from the Victorian homes of England to the more exotic styles of Scandinavia and beyond.
The Hamilton Parker Company is exploring this global trend to inspire home design projects for our clients in Central Ohio.
Mosaic Tiles in 2015
While mosaic tiles have always been popular, they go far beyond the traditional this year. In 2015, you can expect to see mosaic tiles in more unique shapes—from oval to triangle to hexagon—and in natural stone, glass, or metal materials. Long, rectangular tiles, metallic finishes, and larger overall mosaics have become increasingly trendy as homeowners seek more modern, contemporary design options.
In terms of style, mosaic tiles can be installed both vertically and horizontally, though horizontal linear styles remain the most commonly used. Additionally, mosaics will often be found with bold, vibrant color, though we can help you incorporate the popular gray of 2015 into your design as well, and in textured or matte finishes. Mosaic tile designs are expected to be increasingly intricate; they are also expected to be very contemporary to match other home design trends of the year.
However, if bold and colorful just isn’t for you, there are other options to consider. Using black tiles to set off white, ceramic fixtures is a popular alternative often used in modern bathrooms, for example. Consider the materials and colors in your countertops and cabinetry to find the right complementary look among these popular trends. If you are located in Ohio, our designers can help!
