Talk topic: Designing with the future in mind, exploring some exciting tile trends that are shaping the future of interior design.

Earthy Tones and Nature-Inspired Hues:
In 2024, tile design is embracing colour palettes inspired by the earth’s natural beauty. Here are some captivating options:
* Warm Brown Hues: These cozy tones work well for both floors and walls, creating a sense of comfort.
* Muted Greens: Reminiscent of tranquil meadows and lush woods, they’re perfect for kitchen and bathroom backsplashes.
* Terracotta Revival: Rustic terracotta tiles add warmth and character to walls and floors.
* Soft Blues and Sunny Yellows: These colours evoke the serenity of the sky and the optimism of sunlight.

Takeaway: Use these earthy, nature-inspired colours to transform your home into a peaceful haven.

Bigger is Better with Large-Format Tiles:
The trend for large-format tiles is gaining momentum. Expansive dimensions create an air of refinement and elegance.
Ideal for open living areas, kitchens, and bathrooms, large tiles offer a seamless, uncluttered appearance and convey a modern style. Plus, they’re easier to maintain due to fewer grout lines.

Geometric Patterns:
Geometric tiles continue to dominate design trends. Intricate shapes, hexagons, and chevron patterns add a modern and dynamic touch to floors. Whether in neutral tones or bold contrasts, they make a strong visual statement.

Material Choices:
Consider the following tile materials:
* Wood-Like Tiles: Durable and natural-looking, they add warmth to any room.
* Marbleized Tiles: Timelessly beautiful and exquisite.
* Stone-Look Tiles: Rougher in appearance but imposing and versatile.
* When in doubt, opt for neutral colours with minimal texture.

What is our choices today doing to the environment in the future?
