Home Decor Colour Trends For The Year 2016

Posted by Edward on January 7th, 2016

It is that time of the year again, people! Don’t we always feel that the year has ended way too quickly right when we’re sitting on the verge of toasting with our friends on the night of 31st December.  Well, 2015 was no different! Its time to move ahead and move forward with positivity and vigour.

It is time to move on from the old and embrace the new. 2015 was high on colour whether you look at people buying eccentric looking ceramic tiles, or solid coloured vitrified tiles or grey themed bathroom tiles and classic plain white kitchen tiles. 2016 will see this trend carry forward as people are becoming even more experimental these days.

Want to know what’s hot in 2016? Here are some key points: 


Yellow Citrusy - This is yellow with a green base to add freshness to your living space. Works extremely well in combination with plum or burgundy and will add warmth to the kitchen. Even though this is a little out-of-the-box, but this colour is ideal when paired up with bathroom tiles.

Dark Aubergine - A powder room in this deep brinjal colour shade adds depth and looks divine. This was one of the most popular shades when you take vitrified tiles into consideration.


Dark Teal - The most versatile of all colours - it goes well with the deep colour of the woods as well as the whites in the house. You will not regret using dark teal whatever be your furniture. Whether you pick ceramic tiles or kitchen tiles, you can do no wrong with dark teal.

White - Not only does white makes a small space look bigger that it is, you can never go wrong with it. Keep it all white to add the illusion of space or complement with shades of any dark colour to accentuate any corner of your house. There’s a reason why this colour is deemed as evergreen.


Navy Blue - For people wanting to go black but have trouble using it, a particular shade of navy blue serves the same purpose but does it in a softer way. Just imagine a centralized navy blue set of tiles right between a wall full of ceramic tiles.

Blush Pink – Ideal as bathroom tiles, you can pair this up with metallic tones like brass and bronze, the powdery pink has a place of its own. And no, it is not for the kids no more.

Lilacs and Purples - To add warmth and sophistication. Spring Lilac works best as vitrified tiles in the bedroom or sitting rooms with a view.


Deep Green - Rich and vibrant, it works well in both traditional as well as modern settings. The green effect adds life to the space.

Milky Blues - This is a move away from the glossy shades and into the more faded ones. A trend that will definitely catch on like wildfire especially on the lines of kitchen tiles!

Come new year’s eve, we’ll be right on the verge of stepping into another year. Colour are something that will never go out of fashion. Whatever you choose, make sure its personalized.
