What is it about exposed brick that is so appealing? Is it the urban vibe it emits; the rough, rustic, rawness set in rectangular uniformity; the steampunk flair it sends when juxtaposed against today’s tech and modern design? Whatever the reason, the brick look is cool and totally hot. And the trend has not gone unnoticed by Tiles Unlimited of Queens, who are ever at the cusp of the latest trends.
Case in point: Generation Brick and Amsterdam, two new porcelain tile collections made to look like real brick. Unlike traditional bricks, they are durable and easy to clean, making them a practical surface for flooring.
Both collections are a perfect blend of contemporary style and timeless appeal, with an impressively accurate reproduction of the look and feel of brick. Old world cobblestone streets, industrial chic restaurants and lavish brick buildings are the inspiration for these new brick-look porcelain tile collections. Brick-look tile are fast becoming one of the hottest trends for 2016.
We think that the reason brick-look tiles are becoming so popular are because there are so many different possibilities for installation patterns and locations. That is certainly the case with both Generation Brick and Amsterdam. Some of the most popular brick-look tile installations are used for backsplashes, accent walls, fireplace surrounds, covering post and beams and floors.
Generation Brick comes in an array of colors (cream, dark, red, rust, umber) with gorgeous color variation and two sizes (2” x 10” and 7” x 13”) with a rough surface that feels like real bricks. The collection also includes matching large format floor tiles (13” x13” and 24” x 24”).
Amsterdam also offers a variety of color choices (beige, brown, charcoal, fog, multicolor, sunset) and two sizes (2” x 10” and 5” x 10”). The collection includes stunning mosaics in matching colors as well as matching 12” x 24” floor tiles.
