Last month, we took you on a journey, exploring 2021’s Top Tile Trends and hearing from leading industry experts on pairing popular styles with our designer tapware finishes. Now we delve into more unique designs to see how their form and finish can be incorporated into your home, instantly transforming a space and creating the wow factor.
GET THE LOOK
Creating a cohesive look within the home goes beyond colour and furnishings. Attention to the finer details allows for a show-stopping statement. To help inspire you, we’ve sourced three additional tile trends for kitchens, bathrooms and laundries and we demonstrate how to adopt these styles into your next project.
TREND 4 | PENNY ROUNDS
As their symbolic name suggests, their silhouette derives from their vintage timeline, first introduced as the round penny currency. Whilst balanced and circular in shape, Penny Rounds have a unique way of appearing linear and streamlined. Their small scale gives them this quality, and the result is a punctuated modern look with soft tactility.
As seen in the following kitchen zone, Perini Glass Moda Dots in Blush demonstrate how the subtle addition of colour can elevate a space and pop against contrasting finishes with subdued materiality.

“Moda enamelled glass is a unique collection as it is made from a high percentage of recycled glass, making it very earth-friendly. It is incredibly tough and can be used on floors and walls. There are many colours and shapes to choose from. There is no special maintenance involved in keeping them clean, and they do not need to be sealed.”

Pair with Meir Matte Black Tapware for a contrasting effect and monochromatic style; A sleek choice, enhancing the Penny Rounds textural layering and tactility.
TREND 5 | TERRAZZO
Terrazzo is quite timeless and very much on-trend.
Without question, now’s the time for Terrazzo, with the trend making a comeback from its 1920’s debut.
Eclectic and eccentric, every square inch is unique with endless combinations possible.
When it comes to incorporating this robust style in your home, consider the grain, texture and touch, and how you can apply it as a statement feature or an additional textural layer.
“Terrazzo is quite timeless and very much on-trend. With its textural quality, it is quite adaptable in any space, and the monolithic look Terrazzo stone produces is popular among many. Terrazzo is perfectly suitable for commercial and residential projects in all applications, interior and exterior.”
~ MATTHEW TURCO | Cerdomus Tiles
Terrazzo is a durable and versatile material available in varying colours, shapes and sizes, it is ideal for contemporary homes, creating a natural yet modern look when paired with luxury finishes. The Meir range of wall taps and spouts come in a variety of style’s to truly complement your Terrazzo trend.
TREND 6 | FISH SCALES
If standard geometric styles leave you unimpressed, then perhaps a patterned style is an ideal alternate.
Fish Scale tiles (also known as Mermaid or Scallop tiles) are sure to add interest to your tiling repertoire.
The tesselation makes for a dynamic look without over-embellishing your bathroom, laundry or kitchen.
Ultra-modern with a layer of softness, this laundry zone embraces a splash colour whilst creating a distinguished look enhanced by a collection of contrasts, a harmonious balance even in the most compact of spaces.
“Soft pastel pink works perfectly with a large range of classic neutral toned floor tiles. The pink creates a beautiful aesthetic and is a favourite amongst our customers. Geometric tiles also create an interesting feature in any space.”
