Lately the modern trend seems to have been to use the most unusual tiles one can find to add dramatic accents to home decor and we certainly found some very unusual ideas when we started looking. For walls or floors, there are colored tiles, tiles that amazed us with their subtlety, and even 3D tiles. Whether it’s demand – people aren’t afraid to use bold designs to express themselves – or whether the industry has seen a surge in innovation recently, we don’t know. It could be both. We are sure to see many new materials used in tile making along with the new technologies used to apply patterns. This has resulted in unique and unexpected designs. Read on for ideas and sources …
