Interior design trends come and they go.  Geometrics are still somewhat fresh for 2016, but this trend has taken on new dimension with faceted interior design.  Think of a diamond and its many facets, or the angles of a freeform shape.  Sharp, edgy and dimensional, faceted surfaces are taking form all across the design realm.  Let’s explore some of the ways you can include this unique design element in your home.

Faceted tiles are a unique treatment for your walls.  The added dimension gives rooms a completely distinctive look.  Geometric shaped tiles are made from materials such as wood, concrete, ceramic and even recycled paper.  Use them for an accent wall or in the powder room for dramatic effect.  Faceted tiles look great in the kitchen as a backsplash or arranged creatively in any room to form your own artwork.
