Extra-large format tiles
Tiles continue to be larger and larger. With big format tiles on floors and walls, there are less joints, which results in clean and smooth surfaces. Litex, the newly-launched brand by Romantic, Kasor and Tongyi, will bring big format tiles perfect for hotel bathrooms, lobbies, shops and beyond with a contemporary and minimalist style.

Super small format tiles
While large format tiles are a popular choice for large scale construction operations, super small ones are also the new trend in interiors. By choosing small format tiles, interior designers can realize many creative design ideas and add depth that makes a space feel more compact. Belite, Yuechangying and MDC will present various kinds of small format tiles that can meet the different design needs.

Neutral tiles
Neutral tile is versatile by nature and mainly black, white and grey in color, making it easier to match with different decor styles. Trending in walls and floors, neutral tiles stand out and leave the impression of a chic as well as comfortable atmosphere. Qualicer, Overland and Damia are among the representative exhibitors that will showcase complementary neutrals in tiles.

Terrazzo tiles
Terrazzo excels as a composite flooring material that has been used for centuries across the globe. Terrazzo tile is manufactured to introduce a dynamic and retro sense to interior decor with its vibrant grains, which feature both a fascinating speckled appearance and extremely durable construction. Huabao Stone, Xinfeida, Battlo, GUI•YI and Moma will demonstrate a premium quality collection of terrazzo tiles at their booths.
