A common question people ask when looking at Patterned tiles is “Oh? but this is trendy…?” or “This is going to be out of style in 5 years right?” and the answer is as loaded as the question being asked. With tiles, it is difficult to say if a pattern will be a new staple or a passing fad. We can debate if a “Moroccan Pattern Tile” has a temporary place in the industry or if it’s something that will be around for good. An easy way of using those trends you love without running those risks are using them in spaces like Powder rooms & Mudrooms, they are smaller spaces and can have a bit more flare without having to worry about them overpowering a space. A lot of homes in Toronto and the GTA tend to have a small space or two that fit perfectly with this interesting splash of colour and design.
Let’s take a deeper look at that, the style of “Moroccan Patterned tiles” has been woven through history and is now a booming section of the tile world! Most of these tiles bring interesting patterns and colours to light, using a pattern tile allows for a more unique and personalized space. With an industry full of stone & marble looks allowing a more individual flare to take its place in your home makes for a more unique focal piece in your space. Another end of this is the fun and inviting presence these kinds of tiles have, using them in entrance ways & foyers can have an interesting impact on a space.
Whether or not they are a “passing trend” or “something my grandmother had” does not mean people will stop using them.
