At The Stone and Tile Company we are constantly researching the latest design trends to ensure we provide you with the most up to date innovative products for you to adorn your home.
We love seeing new trends emerging in fashion, textiles and interiors so we can then develop and source the latest colours, sizes and finishes in Stone and Tile, ensuring you have the very latest looks for your home or development.
Trends in architectural design over recent years are now filtering into mainstream interior design where we see more and more people knocking down interior walls to create vast open-plan living spaces. Open plan living is a key trend that can be used to create a flow between rooms, combining a relaxed and friendly living room and dining room into one area. This trend sees the development of larger format tiles such as hardwearing Porcelain Tiles, Highly polished and light reflecting Granite Tiles and Riven Slate Tiles, which are perfect for you to create seamless open-plan designs.
Colour trends tend to move slowly and steadily in tile design, a refreshing change is the movement to bolder colour and textural statement walls rather than the safer ‘Travertine’ cream palette of recent years. Modern developments in Mosaics and Tiles can now provide you with captivating focal points for your design scheme, highlighting a splash-back in a kitchen or bathroom or even a feature wall in a living area. Stunning Split Face Mosaic or opulent Glass Mosaic can provide you with unlimited creative freedom to achieve a stunning on-trend design in any room.
This trend draws upon balance and harmony and takes inspiration from natural finishes, organic materials and textures. The movement towards handcrafted products and timeless finishes has meant that Natural Slate products are perfect for this trend. Multicolour Slate Modular with its wonderful autumnal palette brings true authenticity a design scheme in a kitchen or open-plan living environment, especially when you team with the latest warm wood kitchen doors. Grey Slate with it’s subtle riven surface and softer charcoal colourway brings a new neutral elegance to the Classic Vintage trend and can look amazing with any colour shaker or slab front door.
We may not get months of blistering-hot heat, but when we do get some sunny days there’s nothing nicer than making the most of them. With this in mind we see landscape architects designing plans for outdoor rooms. The design considerations are to create a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor areas so the products used are usually compatible with the aesthetics of the home. Natural stone is the perfect solution for you to flow between these two important areas as seamless coordination is key. Slate and Granite floor tiles in larger formats of 600x300mm and Modular Sets provide a classic solution to coordinate with external landscaping and allow you to bring the out-door in-door!
A mix of glamour and extreme rawness fuse to create dramatic interior design schemes, with high gloss luxurious finishes and rich opulent colour being top of the style charts. To ensure your kitchen, bathroom or living areas are on-trend you need to ensure you have some decadent high gloss tiles to work with this look. Whether your style is classic or contemporary our high gloss Granite floor and wall tiles are the perfect tile to coordinate with this glamourous trend. Black Granite tiles are a design statement, distinctive, highly durable and with a light reflecting finish and visual depth only natural Granite tiles can offer.
