Are you on the hunt for the perfect architectural stone and tile trends in 2018 to breathe new life into your favourite spaces? We understand that upgrading the tiling in your home is no small decision. We’ve rounded up some of the hottest designer tiling trends set to dominate in 2018 to get you inspired.
Are you feeling bold? Inject some of that confidence into your home. A patterned tile can create a striking kitchen backsplash or contrast against a white bath. If you’re not ready to go a full spectrum of colour, opting for neutral colours with white, black and grey is a great option. You can infuse pops of colour through your décor and even change palettes depending on the season.

Lively penny round tiles
Some are calling the penny round tile the new subway tile, and for good reason. The versatile nature of these mosaic tiles means you apply them to any kind of style you’re wanting to achieve. You can use this to achieve a retro, art deco or sleek and modern style. Monochrome penny rounds look beautiful against brass hardware and colourful accessories, while a bright and bold blue penny round tile with white grout brings a soothing vibe to a contemporary bathroom.
Loving this look? Try it with our Carrara Marble Penny Round Tiles.
Black brickwork tiles
Despite what you might have heard, subway tiles haven’t dropped off the map, but their 2018 iteration is longer, leaner and a lot darker. Many designers are opting for a texturised tile in black to give subway tiles and edgier look. Try laying in a brickwork pattern with a white grout, against black and gold cabinetry for a sultry look.

Large and artistic
Larger than life tiles stood out at the 2017 Cersaie Trade Fair, the world’s largest tile and bathroom ware exhibition held in Italy. What you might see in the foyer of a luxury hotel is now featuring in the home as well. Tile sizes of up to 3000mm x 3000mm are used to create uninterrupted flooring and built-in art pieces. They are made of materials such as cement, stone, terrazzo or marble.
Get this look for your home with our large format tile range, which comes in custom sizes to suit your space.
Cement-look floor tiles
The cement flooring trend has been around for a few years now, but with tiles you can now create a bold look with less filigree. These tiles look best in laundries, bathrooms, foyers, kitchen and dining areas, balanced with soft rugs. Cement tiles also complete the industrial look – perfect for any quirky CBD apartment.
Feeling the inner-city vibe? You can realise this look with our porcelain Reuse range and our porcelain tiles from the Ergon Playground Inessence Composto Munich series. The Inessence Composto porcelain tile range mixes a stone-cement compound to offer a unique mixture of stones with cement elements. Which is brought together to create the ultimate contemporary look for your floor tiles.
