The beginning of this year turned out to be rich in events in the field of interior design and decoration. In Valencia, from January 28 to February 1, for the 37th time, the Cevisama exhibition dedicated to ceramic tiles, porcelain stoneware and equipment for bathrooms and kitchens was held. Our tips site will tell you about the outcome of this event.
Most recently, the portal introduced you to the trends of The International Surface Event, an exhibition of flooring, countertops and wall decoration materials, which was held in Las Vegas (USA). The exhibition in Valencia, Spain is also a landmark event for the construction and interior decoration industry. Cevisama annually attracts over 90 thousand visitors from more than 140 countries of the world.
Let’s talk about what trends were presented at this event.
The first fashionable trend, in which the Spanish exhibition is absolutely in solidarity with the American “colleague” – porcelain stoneware. It was presented at Cevisama-2019 with an unusually wide range. Moreover, manufacturers are improving, making porcelain stoneware more and more thin, lightweight, easy to install and use..
If in Las Vegas, wood imitation porcelain stoneware was in trend, which was more often used as flooring, then in Valencia, numerous panels were presented from this material. A tile that replaces wallpaper and successfully imitates it is nothing new. But at Cevisama they showed colorful panels made of thin porcelain stoneware, which allow you to focus on one of the walls, look great not only in bathrooms and kitchens, but also in living rooms..
In the photo above, there is another fashionable novelty – porcelain stoneware from the Canvas, Harmony collection. It imitates the marbling technique – it’s like a drawing on water, created by colors that do not mix with each other..
As for the colors, at Cevisama-2019, blue and green were clearly developed. Not just blue, but turquoise, aqua, the night sky with twinkling stars. Green is also not simple – these are shades of moss, emerald and spruce branches. Of the warm tones, coral, shades of bleached powder and watercolor rose, are still in trend this year. That is, pink remained popular, but in a blurry, pale form. Most often it is combined with gray, white, pale blue.
Again, it was not without honeycombs and octagons. At Cevisama 2019, tiles with geometric patterns were plentiful. The designers noted that the 1970s motifs have returned with their sophisticated geometry, which focuses precisely on the floors and walls. Arches, ornaments, braids – all this was on the stands with tiles from the Spanish exhibition.
Marble is a material that never goes out of style. At Cevisama-2019, the most notable were statuario marble with its clear veins, as well as dark brown Emperador Dark.
Let’s briefly highlight the other trends of Cevisama-2019:
- Monocoating. The same porcelain stoneware, thanks to the seamless installation, passes from the floor to the walls and countertops. Manufacturers immediately offer such ready-made solutions for decorating an entire room..
- Larger and larger tiles for floor finishing, sizes continue to increase.
- Wood-like tiles are becoming more and more difficult to distinguish from real wood, the trend remains very relevant.
- A tile that mimics textured concrete or Corten steel. Such brutal surfaces are used today not only in the loft style..
- Glossy surfaces, gloss, glaze, many tile collections literally shone.
