The Latest Tile Trends with CTD Architectural Tiles

From cultural influences to environmental considerations, the surface industry has become an exciting creative arena for trend developments. The desire for creating spaces that stand out, delivering on both aesthetic and practical qualities, has driven the demand for tiles that make unique and memorable design statements. From botanical-inspired patterns to modern terrazzo finishes, CTD Architectural’s extensive product portfolio provides architects and designers with more choice than ever when it comes to specifying ceramic and porcelain tiles for residential, commercial and hospitality projects.

Oriental Accents
Synonymous with an effortlessly minimalist aesthetic, a Japanese-inspired interior fuses sleek and simple design with natural finishes. An increasingly popular trend appearing throughout residential, retail and hospitality interior décors, CTD Architectural Tiles boasts a wide range of products that can help architects, designers and specifiers achieve this look for their clients. From the wood-effect porcelain Metropolitain collection, to the ornately decorated Amazonia and Jazz patterned tiles, the versatile range is guaranteed to inject an oriental-inspired appeal in to any project.

Timeless Terrazzo
Fast becoming one of the most popular surface choices for designers in a wide variety of residential, commercial and hospitality projects, terrazzo has experienced a major comeback in the last year. Having made its way from grand Italian homes into large communal spaces, modern homes and luxury commercial settings worldwide, CTD Architectural Tiles has grown its terrazzo-effect offering to meet market demand. Durable and practical, terrazzo tiles are resistant to water and stain damage when sealed properly, and can be used both indoors and outdoors. Choose from the eye-catching colourways of Venice Villa and Stracciatella and the ornate designs of the Farnese range to achieve a look that promises to deliver on both style and practicality.

Botanical Paradise
The trend for embracing botanical-inspired design has been growing in popularity at a rapid rate, in particular within the hospitality and retail sectors. Nature has been a source of inspiration for designers for a number of years and has now developed into all areas of interior design, including surfaces.

Diluted by a desaturated colour palette, the Amazonia collection is the perfect marriage between rustic handmade influences and biophilic design. Versatile and unique, the designer collection combines botanical patterns with a pared-back palette to enliven spaces of all sizes. Suitable for both walls and floors, the tiles are available in two shapes: a small square format (138 x 138mm) and a larger hexagon format (320 x 368mm), in five colourways and designs. Offering endless opportunities to combine and mix the distinctive tiles, designers are able to choose from the subtle geometric patterns of Ethnic or the delicate leaf prints of the Tropic designs to create a standout space. For a complete and cohesive scheme, combine with the nature-inspired hues of the Zelij collection.

Natural & Eco-Conscious
With sustainability being a key approach and consideration for today’s specifier, designer and architect, the CTD Architectural Tiles team are working with carefully selected manufacturers to offer products that achieve the highest level of sustainability possible.
