What tile designs are perfect for an art deco look?

  1. Marble-look
  2. Cement-look
  3. Marble pattern

 

Contemporary interior designs seem to be the trend nowadays. Modern residential or even commercial spaces make use of seamless looks with predominantly uniform patterns which are all characteristic of this style trend. It’s probably uncommon to find modern homes that make use of more vibrant and eye-popping visuals due to the demand for more of these minimalist-fusion styles. Styles like art deco have largely gone unnoticed – maybe because of the hesitation and a lack of knowledge on how to achieve this look. However, as long as you have the right tile designs for an art deco look, this elusive style of the early twentieth century will eventually be in your grasp.

The influence of the 1920s on interior design is probably one of the most underrated and overlooked movements, with respect to today’s current design trends. Designs of wildly-shaped geometrical patterns with precise finishes are not everyone’s cup of tea, after all. To dispel popular opinion, this style is actually one of the most versatile styles out there. It can be fused with contemporary, rustic, or even Mediterranean designs to create a modern look that is by all means art deco in nature. Continue reading for these art deco-appropriate tiles which can bring out your artistic expression and flair for interior design.

In the beginning, the natural finish brought about by marble look tiles may seem to defy all the conventions of an art deco style. The latter has largely focused on vibrant colors and striking shapes and patterns which are reminiscent of North American and European architecture styles in the 1920s.

Despite this, however, marble tiles actually make the perfect complement for any art-deco inspired design. The black marble-inspired design of Floor Center’s 60×60 QG26032 makes the best choice for this endeavor. Natural patterns emulating real marble are simply visually-appealing to anyone who sees it. Art deco is all about achieving the highest level of opulence – this beautifully-designed marble-like tile can easily polish and brighten up the spaces of any living room, bedroom, or dining room.

You’re probably wondering why cement-look tiles are part of this list. It’s quite simple, really – the industrial element of these tile designs will easily take anyone back to a time of visually-stunning architectural elements and sheer extravagance.

There is one bit of a challenge when it comes to selecting cement looks for your interior. It’s all about beautifully striking the balance between industrial, and art-deco style. Simply leaning too much into the former may achieve the outcome which is the exact opposite of your desired intent.

The right kind of tile for this job is the 60×60 6186P. A distinctive feature about this tile is that it has been applied with a matte finish, which can offer your interior with an enhanced look of smoothness. These style fusions tread the fine balance of industrial-art deco, resulting in a style which is just what you’re looking for.
