Wood-look

modern-interior-loft-in-the-evening When talking about home design you can’t go past wood-look tiling, it’s come, stayed conquered, and still remains as one of the biggest design trends of 2017. This is because of its versatility. Not only does it look chic but works in both an urban-loft or a countryside cottage.

This year, play with shapes and sizes to decide what type of wood-look best suits your home. Shorter, narrower floorboards that were popular mid 20th century are back. Also keep an eye open for hexagonal wood tiles of all sizes. These are perhaps the biggest thing in design coming out of 2017.

Wood looks great on the walls as well as on the floors. Find out what else makes a great feature wall.

Metal

bathroom-of-converted-industrial-loft Metal is also back when it comes to bathroom renovations. But forget stainless steel, we don’t want this to look like a laundry. Look into gun-metal grey and pewter with matte or light polishes. This will give your house an industrial feel and especially mixes well with concrete.

Masonry

spacious-outdoor-sitting-area Masonry is growing with the indoor/outdoor living trend as stone seamlessly blends from kitchen to patio. According to Daltile the biggest trend in indoor/outdoor tile products will be 2 cm pavers. These large tiles are about twice the thickness of regular tiles so keep your eye out for tiles with these specs.

The age old favourite white marble still takes the cake for style and simplicity, but anything monochromatic (like limestone) with minimal graphics will be hot this season.

Financing your renovation shouldn't be a headache. Lendi makes it simpler.
