Tiles are not only practical and easy to clean, but they can define the character of your home and there is a range of tiling styles available.

So whether you are planning a tiling Do It Yourself job or you’re getting a professional tiler to come out to your home to do the work for you, consider these top tile trends for 2017 and your home will be looking better than ever.
1. Luxury tiles are ideal if you want to add a touch of class to your home. They are particularly eye catching when you mix and match them with luxury fixtures, such as gold plating. One of the most popular styles of luxury tile are class marble design.

Timber look tiles are low maintenance when compared to their real counterparts, but they look great and can even give you “wooden” floors in your bathroom! The one place you normally wouldn’t have it.
4. The ocean look is a popular choice for 2017 as people are looking for the ultimate lifestyle getaway.
