Kitchen Deco Trends


Material Choice

Choice of material is important in all areas of your home. In your kitchen and bathroom decorative wall tiles should invite you to want to reach out and touch them. In terms of trends, men are becoming the focus with a masculine and streamlined look. Stripes and animal prints are predicted to be popular choices and if you don't want animal print on your walls then a quick contemporary re-tile can be achieved by using stick on tiles which are available in a wide range of styles and color.

Predictions say that wood, knitting, embroidery, silicone and matte plastic will be in whilst high gloss finishes will be less popular. These all invite you to touch them so remember materials are important!


If you've got lots of shiny tiles in your kitchen or bathroom then don't panic. A quick and efficient way to re-tile is to choose self adhesive wall tiles as these stick on tiles come in colors and styles that will complement your new look. An additional benefit that they have is that they can be easily removed through the use of a hair dryer meaning that you can change your look as often as you wish.


Color Choice

White will be popular but accompanied by floral, stripes or geometric patterns. The African look will encourage browns and blacks and more natural tones and shades but do think warm as warm tones and shades are the 'in thing'. Other colors heading for popularity in 2013 are dark burgundy and yellow.


You can successfully carry this look into your kitchen or bathroom not just through accessories but your choice of tiles. If the thought of re-tiling has you in a panic then why not consider self-adhesive wall tiles as they will make the job much quicker and easier/ Stick on tiles today come in a range of styles and colors and will happily lend themselves to the latest design trends.
