Trend Alert: Tile Rugs

At Naturally Tiles we are loving the latest trend in ceramic flooring – tile rugs! This new design style combines the ancient art of mosaic with the structural focus a rug brings to a space. It’s a look can be created by combining single colour and patterned tiles of different colours, finishes, sizes or texture to add extra character or a subtle contrast.

This sophisticated trend works particularly well for those spaces where placing a rug would be impractical – in the kitchens, bathrooms, hallways or outdoor entertaining spaces. Creating a tile rug can achieve a stunning visual impact with a small or large design (or even multiple rugs) while retaining the convenience the tiles provide.

Through bringing in the extra texture or colour with a tile rug, you can transform any space by creating a touch of opulence and sophistication; or fun and playfulness. Tile rugs can be framed with a border, in order to emulate a traditional rug look or it can be borderless for a more contemporary and open feel.

Chose to make a bold statement or a more subdued tone-on-tone effect, alternate the colours or create intricate patterns with a variety of painted tiles to define the space. Whichever direction you decide to take, the result will be unique and bring additional character to an area.
