Bold patterns – not just a fashion fad

This summer, the upcoming trend to look out for is bold patterns. Just like in fashion, these bold patterns are appearing on the runways but now on floor and wall tiles in homes and commercial spaces too.

Going bold means anything and everything goes - from bright colours to funky shapes! The key is to have fun when designing a space with bold patterns. Create a focal point in your kitchen by adding bold patterns in your backsplash or place them on the floors of your home for a more dynamic design.

“Whether you opt for traditional looking tiles, Moroccan inspired tiles, geometric, or other patterned tiles, the key to pulling off this modern look is to mix bold patterned tiles with rustic or natural tiles to create a unique and modern look, packed with character,” says Richard Nuss, Marketing Manager at Johnson Tiles.

As with fashion, tile designs need to evolve with shifting trends and customer demands. “Our newly acquired inkjet technology allows us to make smaller production runs with designs exclusive to a single customer if that is what is required.  This is true for large commercial projects too,” he says. Inkjet technology allows for innovative new designs that can be produced for once off installations or even to suit a universal look and feel required for franchises or satellite offices.

Johnson Tiles produces various tile sizes and formats.  Gone are the days that you are restricted to the standard square tile body.  Tiles are now produced in large formats and even planks and these can be cut to size or even into geometrical shapes such as octagons for a stunning finish.  “You don’t have to be restricted to using one tile shape and size either.  Mix and match shapes and sizes for an edgy look,” concludes Nuss. 

All Johnson Tiles inkjet products are tested against the Porcelain Enamel Institute (PEI) rating system and conform to the highest standards to ensure they are durable and slip resistant.
