Borrow from these to create a stunning result
A home is often an extension of one’s personal style. Having served customers from a variety of backgrounds, RAK Ceramics understands this fact and that people are deeply attached to their personal spaces. In keeping with this, the brand has come up with five tile trends for 2020.
Ceramics are considered the modern marble, and can help make a space luxurious. One such everyday experience – one which is often taken for granted – is the moment you step into your home after a long day’s work. The floor, the roof and the walls, make a difference. With ceramics, it’s now possible to impart a sleek and upscale vibe to any space. There’s a catch though. When deciding on which ceramics to use, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the huge array of choices that the market presents.
Therefore, RAK Ceramics has come up with a list of top five trends that will make it easy to make the right choice, and will define the ceramic tiles market in 2020.
Wood look-alike tiles: The vein patterns of a polished and varnished wood is a timeless taste; add to it the durability of ceramics and you get tiles that add a touch of vintage to any space. With selections such as oak, rosewood, wood strip, maple, art wood and many more, RAK's wood art collection isn’t just all brown. Not to forget the nubs and twirls of classic wood patterns on the tiles that set these products apart from others.
Classic marble: Marble never goes out of style. Classic, marble-looking tiles are in vogue for homes and business properties alike. RAK Ceramics takes it up a notch by creating grey hues on marble that is white, beige or brown. Well-suited for floors, walls and counter-tops, these ceramics are available in the form of Mega Slabs – a unique product by RAK that yields smooth, continuous surfaces with no grout line. Cleaning too becomes a breeze with these products.
Metallic effects: Coincident with the uber-urban and contemporary design trends, metal on tiles are fantastic options for 2020. The modern vibe that metallic effects on tiles can impart is quite surprising. RAK Ceramics' metallic tiles are already a customer favorite.
Mega Slabs – the ultimate choice in elegance, has been showcased in 2019 at the ACETECH exhibition. RAK Ceramics’ Maximus Mega Slabs collection is paving the way into 2020. These products feature a 9mm width, and can cover surfaces as wide as 8ft. With their expansive floor coverage, these tiles require minimal joints, thus there’s little need for grouts. Options such as forest green, fiery red, and a plethora of different graphic designs allow one to express his/ her personality in every space.
Grey tones: Grey is no longer the dull colour it was once assumed to be. Not only do grey tiles appear chic, they also provide for a relaxing ambience, be it at home or at a workplace. Take a look at RAK Ceramics’ Irish Flakes or Maximus Basaltina Stone or Smoked tiles, grey’s neutrality harmonises with a plethora of other colors, and it’s almost like a clean canvas waiting to get designed.
This new year, let your imagination soar and create your perfect abode with the right kind of flooring.
