From terrazzo tiles to big pops of colour, there are abundant tiling options in Australia and choosing isn’t easy. But we’re here to take the stress out of tile selection by showing you exactly what’s trending in Australian homes for 2022.
Tiles continue to be a safe choice of flooring for Australian families thanks to their allergy-friendly and hardwearing compositions. But they also have a lower environmental impact than other types of flooring, making them not only a brilliant choice from a design point but also an Earth-friendly one. And what’s not to love about that?
From stone and timber styles to coloured tiles with a sprinkle of pattern, this year’s trending products allow you to tap into your creativity as little or as much as you want.
Top 4 Tile Trends In Australia For 2022
We chatted with Beaumont Tiles for an update on Australian tiles trends for 2022 – and whether you love timber hues or texture, now’s the time to start that long-awaited restyle you’ve been dreaming of.
Texture and Shape
If you thought your backdrop had to be plain, neutral and, well, the same as everyone else’s, think again. Coloured and textured tiles are definitely trending in 2022 and if you’re dreaming of a lovely splash of it on your feature wall or in a hallway, now’s the time to open up the doors to your creativity.
First, let’s talk texture – because, while there will always be a place for smooth walls in the home, a textured wall has the power to truly transform a space.
The exclusive Barcelona range is all about texture with options that include strips, peaks, dunes, waves and studs. Mix and match them for a truly unique design, or repeat a single tile throughout your space.
This season’s colours include a dreamy sage-green, clay terra (shown above), dark grey and crisp white.
Mozaic tiles are timeless and offer an opportunity to add character to a space without necessarily committing to big colour.
The Shape Carrara pressed-edged porcelain Mozaic collection dials up the creativity from bathroom and laundry splashbacks to bathroom floors. Choose from brick, herringbone or hex shapes in gold and grey to suit warm and cool moods.
The Prettiest Patterns
Patterns and prints are empowering renovators to create their own little hideaways, channelling far-off places and cherished memories in the process.
The ceramic Atmosphere Jungle Mix Tile range includes 12 different botanical faces that allow for infinite combinations. They also blend beautifully with the rest of the Atmosphere single colour range.
The captivating Sync Tile is available in two colourways in each of the Cube, Clover and Flower patterns.
These decorative porcelain beauties are a simple way to create a retro feature in the home. Take them all the way from the floor to the wall or use them sparingly for a special nook steeped in detail.
The Timber Look
Earthy tones and connections with nature feature heavily in tile trend trends for 2022. And, we have to say, the Beaumont Tiles timber-look selection captures both perfectly. Not only do these tiles bring the warmth of wood to the home (without touching a tree), but they’re also waterproof, allergy-safe and compatible with underfloor heating.
Taking its inspiration from Europe (which paves the way in tile trends globally), the blue-streaked Amazzonia Tile has a pressed edge and matte finish. There is loads of variation between each plank which results in a magnificent finish, packed with detail and colour.
For enriched grains and a heritage look, the dark tones of the Artwood Chocolate Brown Tile ticks all the boxes. Elegant and undeniably luxe, this hardwearing and waterproof option performs from your laundry right through to the bathroom.
So much more than just a pretty face, Smart Stone Tiles are a slip-resistant, pet-friendly option that works indoors and out for seamless transitions between your spaces.
The Lagoon Tile is a stand-out for its clean, contemporary aesthetic and use of Microtec technology for safety when wet. From your ensuite to your balcony, this tile has the family covered.
So what’s the bottom line on tile trends for 2022? Be brave with colour, invite patterns and texture and look for eco-friendly takes on stone and timber for timeless elegance.
