In 2018 the use of tiles in the home is going to be even more popular than ever before, as trends we’ve seen begin to rise over the last several years start to reach their peak, such as art deco styling, geometric patterns and the return to a classic decor look, over the post-modern home design trend that has ruled the roost, is dethroned.
Encaustic tiles have seen various resurgences over the years, first coming of use back in medieval times, originally made by using different colours of clay to form the patterns, rather than them being a product of the glaze. Many modern manufacturing methods of encaustic tiles use a two-shot moulding process, where the inlay colour is moulded first and then backfilled with body colour before the tiles are fired.
With the new year, comes the basic human instinct to search out the new, and clean out the old, often manifesting itself in the form of home DIY projects. Helping you to create a new, fresh and warmer feel to your property after those dark winter months.
