Maximalist Tile Design Trend: More is More

The ideology of ‘Maximalism’ has been gaining a ton of attention in the interior design industry. A maximalist space is adorned with more colors, more patterns, more textures, more materials, and definitely more boldness and drama. Opposing the idea of the ‘minimalist’ style, which is based on the concept of ‘less is more’ - maximalism design embraces the ‘more is more’ vibe. Hence, it’s time to say no to subtleness, minimal decor, and the old and boring white walls.

Many homeowners and designers incorporate wallpapers to achieve a maximalist touch but one creative method that definitely doesn’t fail to impress is the use of wall and floor tiles. At Mineral Tiles, we offer an exquisite collection of tile designs that can make a beautiful maximalist statement. Let’s catch an eye!
