Tile Trend Watch: Inspiring & Unexpected Creations

Tile Trend Watch: Inspiring & Unexpected Creations

Gone are the days when tile was simply tile, and making a decision about your bathroom's wall covering was a matter of taking a quick trip to the tile store. And they're no longer just for the bathroom, either.

As interesting new tile collections are released — take, for example, Heath Ceramics' collaboration with Dwell — and we have more online resources and design inspiration at our fingertips, it's easier than ever to get creative with tile designs. Whether it's placing different tile sizes on a single wallscape, using metallic tiles in place of a mirror, or creating patterns and images with different colors for a dash of visual interest, one thing's for sure: these days, when it comes to tile, you make your own rules.
