There’s no denying that Copper has been the material of the moment in interiors as it looks great in a huge variety of settings. Brass and chrome are also still hugely popular but it is copper hues that are making the biggest impact in kitchen designs. If you’re looking a touch of copper, we recommend opting for a splashback using our Copper Leaf tile from the Glassworks collection.
For those who want to really embrace the metallic trend look no further than a full wall of metallic effect tiles for a real wow factor. Metallic Steel (made from Porcelain) from the Tileworks collection is perfect for this and is and is suitable for wet walls making it ideal for bathrooms.
If you’re on the other end of the spectrum and love the metallic trend but you’re not sure how to incorporate it into your interior, try experimenting with some accessories before taking the plunge. Adding a few accent pieces is also a great way to change a kitchen or bathroom, try adding a panel of metallic mosaics to liven up your space and add a little bit of interest.
This is another popular trend that when done correctly looks striking, take a look at these Platinum half tiles tiles teamed with a marble work top and teal green paint, a winning combination! Experimenting with textures and materials is a great way to create a unique style in your home.
Keep it classic
There are many interior design styles that lend themselves to the current trend of metallic, such as Art Deco. Art Deco tiles tend to feature accents in gold and silver, as these hues are reminiscent of the opulence of the era. Stylised Art Deco tiles in trademark geometric shapes could be a great way of introducing gold and silver if you don’t want to cover large areas. Try incorporating decorative Art Deco border tiles with metallic flashes for an easy to live with look that is sure to impress.
