What is still trending?


Despite many believing that the emulating of natural stone and wood products would start to fade with tile manufacturers, it has not.  In fact, many of your ‘top’ quality manufacturers from Italy and Spain have again produced tiles that have the natural appearance of wood, linen, granite, travertine, marble and cement.  The colours’ varying surface effects is what makes the more experienced and quality driven manufacturers’ stand out.

What is more apparent is the seeming lack of interest shown in the more monochromatic look.  Customers are certainly excited about the combinations of structured and polished tiles.  The realisation among many of the architects and designers is that the cheapest of imported products are very often not the best and, in many instances these tend to fail the application it is used for.   Customers are asking questions about durability in combination with the aesthetic appeal of the product.
