Longing to give your kitchen or bathroom a face-lift? Several chic tile options have surfaced this year, and unlike the simple slated styles we’ve seen in the past, these trends feature bright, contemporary colors and bold patterns. Designer Becky Behling of Beauty Tramp shared the look of her own bathroom, emblazoned with tiles as green as the Amazon jungle. “I really just fell in love with the vibrancy and graphic punch of the Starburst tiles,” Behling says of the encaustic cement tiles. She also used chrome fixtures on her 1963-vintage bathroom, to both update it and keep its original feel. The sky’s the limit when it comes to tile varieties online, Behling says. “Don’t be afraid to use a tile you love even if you think it’s too bold. It’s your space!”
