In the past few years, there have been numerous trends that have helped improve the aesthetic of homes.

In the Philippines, floor tiles in the bathroom are taken with utmost importance as this is a major factor of cosmetic appeal. Because of this we’ve got the best of 2019 bathroom trends to take the world by storm!


Stainless Steel Finishes

Stainless Steel Finishes

Plumbing fixtures with stainless steel finishes will always be in. Whether you have them in your bathroom cabinet or fixtures, stainless steel will always leave a lasting charm. Keep in mind that these decorations are a big deal when you want to follow a certain theme. Making use of stainless steel will truly add a touch of timelessness to match any home. To complement this futuristic design style, go for a muted color of tile like the 60×60 Solar Stone Matte.

In the Philippines, floor tiles of any design will fit perfectly with any type of stainless steel fixture. Many people go beyond the use of standard silver stainless steel and opt for other color options such as gold, champagne, rose gold, copper and gradient finishes. Stainless steel plumbing fixtures and bathroom accessories will give off an impression of cleanliness with its marvelous simplicity.

You can never go wrong with stainless steel accents and that’s why they’re still taking the world by storm. We can expect to see this trend go on, and in 2019, we’ll see designers take stainless steel to the next level with a range of new colors and designs.


Matte Tiles

Matte Tiles

Matte tiles are steadily growing in popularity, which is why homeowners are actively taking part in this trend. The non-reflective face of matte tiles has a charm that draws people to it. Being regarded as a classy finish and one of the best base finishes that helps accent any fixture design, the matte tile not only adds a touch of class to your bathroom but the matte finishes help make your bathroom look bigger, much like the 20×30 Musa.

The attractive aesthetic that matte tiles present not only works perfectly as floor tiles, they can also be used for your bathroom’s walls as well. These are great options for your walls as they do not reveal any smudges or dry watermarks, giving the impression of cleanliness. This finish makes it perfect for bathrooms that are always in use.

Matte tiles create a modern and state-of-the-art effect for bathrooms. Regardless of the bathroom’s size, matte tiles will always look natural, clean and sophisticated. Many homeowners also go for a mix of traditional gloss tiles with matte tiles. For example, they use gloss tiles for the walls and matte tiles for the floor.


Porcelain Tiles

Porcelain Tiles

In the Philippines, porcelain tiles have always been regarded as one of the best tiles to use for houses. Porcelain is known for its durability, flexibility, and low-maintenance. In 2019, we’re seeing a wide use of porcelain tiles in Philippine bathrooms. The glazed surface of porcelain offers a wide range of designs.

The amazing design flexibility of porcelain tiles makes this ideal for homes as porcelain can easily mimic other designs. If you want floor tiles that look like bamboo, granite, wood, or steel, porcelain tiles can look the part. On a visual scale, porcelain tiles can even come close to the real material it imitates just like the classic design of the 20×60 Basic tiles.

If you want bathroom tiles that are easy to clean, then porcelain would be the best choice for you. The surface of porcelain tiles is known to be stain resistant; its ability to repel stains comes from its natural ability to repel liquid penetration. That also means that even the test of time won’t discolor porcelain tiles.


Smart Bathroom Technology

Smart Bathroom Technology

We’re taking a huge step into the future of technological advancements, and we’re here to see them incorporate a few technologies to improve our bathroom experience. Many companies and technology firms are working to make home living more convenient, and they have not left any room uncharted, because even our bathrooms can be hooked up with smart technology.

These technologies involve innovations such as smart toilets that are equipped with the ability to connect to your smartphone and play music, a seat cooler or warmer, motion sensors on the seat cover, and illuminated panels. Touch activated shower faucets that can fill up the tub, warm water or showers are motion activated that will turn off once you step out of the shower.

We will most likely see these technologies in many homes for 2019 and the years to come. For this, you may want to consider the 20×30 Country tile collection for its chic and smart look.
