Portuguese Tiles Are Totally the New Subway Tiles
If monochromatic and minimalist aren’t your thing, then you’ll be glad to know a new tile is trending and it’s full of character and color.
Unlike the Carrara marble and subway tile kitchen and bathroom accents of 2018, the new year will be all about Portuguese tiles. They’re vibrant, they’re classic, and they’re a fun way to add warmth to any space.
Take, for instance, these Talavera accent tiles ($1) that are basically begging to become the pop of color to an otherwise bland staircase.
Wouldn’t these Klinker Alcazar Petunia wall tiles ($11) look pretty on your kitchen backsplash?
Permanence not your jam? Why not give Portuguese tiles a temporary whirl with these self-adhesive wall decals ($17)?
Maybe even try tile stencils, like this Augusta Portuguese print stencil ($17), with chalkboard paint and make it DIY (and seriously cost effective).
Not ready for a full-on project just yet? Test out the trend in a no-strings-attached kind of way with these Thirstystone Lisbon Tile Costers ($8).
The new year is all about switching it up after all.
