Preparing for Your Kitchen Remodel

Oct 29, 2021

Cersaie is the International Exhibition of Ceramics, Tile and Bathroom Furnishings that opened its doors to the public at the end of September for the first time since the pandemic started.  Cersaie is an important international exhibition because it reveals the trends of tomorrow for kitchens, baths and other rooms in the home that use ceramics and porcelain.  The top trends from Cersaie that will influence renovations for homeowners are as follows:

Splashes of color everywhere.  Bold colors were found in nontraditional products such as shower bases, radiators and faucets.  This trend allows homeowners to make personal design statements, use color to escape from daily routines and bring a natural vibe indoors through earth-tones, pastels and light shades of blue.

Connecting with natural elements expanded to tiles that resembled marble.  Featured were porcelain vanity tops that mimicked different shades of onyx, Carrara, Calcutta and Verona red marble.   Additionally, there were tiles that looked like hardwood. The ability to connect with nature was also found in bathroom displays at Cersaie.  There were brightly colored floral tiles with tactile surfaces and jungle-styled décor on display.

Combining smooth and textured surfaces for countertops, cabinet doors and tile finishes was another strong trend at Cersaie.  Utilizing cutting-edge digital printing technologies, combined with a variety of glaze applications and textures transformed tile to provide the decorative and expressive qualities of wallpaper while boasting the durability and versatility of ceramic.
