The Infinite Possibilities of Ceramic

Ceramic, an ancient art form, continues to impress! It’s still a popular option today, as it allows you to create a variety of different styles and provides the perfect finishing touch to a room. Here’s an overview of the latest trends.

Patchwork style

This technique is increasingly gaining traction due to its visually stunning results. The patchwork style is achieved by using several different ceramic tiles to create a unique and very personal collage. It may be a daring option, but one thing is certain – you will have an exceptional and unique work of art!

Herringbone pattern

This pattern provides a multitude of possibilities. In addition to enhancing the look of your room, ceramic placed in a herringbone pattern can be composed of tiles of different colours, tiles of the same colour, or even tiles in gradually changing colours. They can also be placed as a continuation of a wood floor, which creates a bold, interesting look.

Hexagon

Hexagon shaped ceramic can be used in a variety of different ways to create different looks. To create a real wow! effect, try using tiles that belong to the same colour tone or combine tiles of different colours. Or, why not use these same tiles and continue your pattern up the wall, stopping at the half-way point? These "incomplete" walls are also very trendy. The retro feel of a backsplash in hexagonal tiles is also a great choice.

A glossy effect...

For uncompromising style, a glossy ceramic is a natural choice. It’s an interesting option if you want to add a touch of glamour to those rooms that usually are relegated to the background, such as the bathroom. The glossy effect is perfect for showcasing a wall, but you must choose your colour wisely. If the room is on the small side, it’s best to opt for a lighter shade, so as not to accentuate its narrowness. Glossy style ceramics reflect light very well, which gives the impression that the room is larger than it really is.

Imitation concrete

In today’s world of interior design, many materials successfully imitate the appearance of another material, and ceramic is no exception. Ceramic tiles that look exactly like concrete are an ideal way to give a room an industrial look. This kind of ceramic tile is perfect if you like the look of concrete but don’t want to lose the possibility of having a mosaic. Imitation concrete tiles are very stylish and are being used more and more often!

Imitation natural stone

Like ceramic tiles that imitate concrete, there are also tiles that deceive the eye and appear to be made of natural stone. For a much lower cost, you will get the stylish touch that you’re looking for! It’s best to use large-size tiles that are "veined" differently, in order to maximize the natural look of stone.
