Coverings is an annual trade show that showcases the latest tile and stone products. Earlier in April, the show was held in Orlando and featured 9 miles worth of trends and exhibits. Wow, that’s a lot of floor and wall coverings! Although we didn't attend, we've done our research to keep up with the latest innovations and how designers and trendsetters are using tile. Since the majority of our remodeling projects include flooring and sometimes wall coverings, tile is a material we talk about every day. And if you are planning a remodeling project, it’s probably in your future as well. So, take a look and check out the trends that were spotted at this year’s Coverings show below.
Inspired by the sea, hues of blue and teal are becoming very popular in bathrooms and kitchens.
Three-dimensional tile is a fantastic way to create a focal wall in a kitchen or living room. With a wide variety of options, you can choose something very subtle or if you prefer, go dramatic to make a statement.
New printing technology has allowed tile to have the look of a beautiful linen fabric or wallpaper.
Larger sized tile is becoming more popular as designers are using 18x36, 24x48, and even 48x48 to create seamless looks.
Wood Look Tile
When you love hardwood, but don’t want the upkeep for a bathroom, kitchen or mudroom now you can find a tile that looks like wood without all the maintenance.
