When chevron patterns became all the rage a few years back, it looked like the trend that showed up on everything from textiles to tile backsplashes to flooring designs might be a standalone. But graphic patterns are hotter than ever, with an ever-evolving array of shapes showing up to jazz up your home.
Here’s where – and how – to incorporate this trend into your home.
The backsplash is a great place to use graphic tiles to provide contrast, interest, or give a kitchen a lift. This departure from the seen-everywhere subway tile makes a kitchen feel unique and custom. If you really want to be on trend, go 3D.
“Though decorative backsplashes have been popular for quite some time, the new trend popping up will be geometric three dimensional patterns,” said interior designer Shai DeLuca-Tamasi on Amara. “These will most likely be seen with cement and wood. The kitchen is a perfect room for geometric tiles. My design tip would be to let the movement in the tile be the star of the show. Consider using a neutral palette when using 3D tiles so as not to pull the eye away from the true feature.”
