2018 will bring us a return to some classic inspired patterns with beautiful colour combinations and designs. This year is going to be a big year in terms of revisiting old trends. The first beautiful trend is the traditional floral patterns which are going to make a grand comeback with their colours, detailing and vintage vibes. Floral patterns are making a huge come back to this year with a vast variety of colours. Art continues to spill into home spaces with different variations forming a particular design. BFT has these classic patterns in bold, vibrant colours and exaggerated patterns. These designs serve as part of the aesthetics and create a more natural feel.
Another classic trend that would complement a dark coloured wall or a patterned wall painting is to use simple tiles to create elegant floorings. We recommend on keeping your floors plain with light colours when you have a lot of décor in your space. It is the most popular design trend to keep your flooring designs simple and minimal to reveal the elegance of the space. Simple patterns accompanied by elegant colours speak for themselves about the Interiors of the given space. 2018 is all about minimalism and classic floorings for an avant-garde style home. BFT recommends going with simple designs that create a sophisticated look adding to the elegance of the space. The colour palette that creates this look comprises of pastels, browns and creams which create a warm and cosy vibe. Move away from contrasting and bright colours and combine light, medium and dark tones to create a softer effect.BFT creates customized flooring and offers various colour options from which you can choose and design the flooring for your home or any given space. The simple Cast-In-Situ and Terrazzo tiles are perfect to attain the desired look and feel.
Another classic and all-time favourite trend is the Geometric pattern!! Playing with different shapes and creating unique patterns is what BFT loves to do; from creating stars to diamonds and hexagons, we’ve done it all. This pattern will perfectly complement simple & elegant home decor to highlight any given area. The hexagon is a classic geometric tile shape that will always transcend trends, making it a staple shape in tile design. Geometric tile doesn't necessarily mean to have to choose a dramatic shape and colour scheme. Instead, you can keep it simple with a classic white or neutral colour, with a square or any pattern tile and a contrasting black grout line. Using a range of shapes from hexagons and triangles, squares and herringbone, establishments and individuals can choose to be bold and create instantly recognizable designs that will create emotional responses.
A little customization would do no harm in creating flawless beautiful flooring patterns. Being simple is good no doubt but adding some uniqueness to your flooring is always a good idea to create a statement look. Statement floors and personalised flooring are all key trends we’re seeing the great appetite for in the world of leisure and hospitality this year.

Artistic creations don’t have to be confined to your walls. When it comes to your house, there are plenty of ways to infuse beauty and design. From the décor to the furniture, each piece of your overall vision can be accented with an artsy essence. There is, however, one important element that plays a crucial role in enhancing the aesthetics of your house! Wondering what that is?
That’s right! It’s undoubtedly your flooring!! The floor design reflects the concept and quality of your life and is an extension of who you are. Adding interesting designs to your flooring not only breathes life into the space but also defines its energy. Selecting the correct design that blends in well with the interiors of your house is important to give a wholesome finish. Without the right flooring, your room can have design elements in all the right places and still not look right. The design idea for your floor must depend entirely upon your personal taste and also the room interiors. Big surface areas such as flooring will have the greatest influence and it is worth taking great care in selecting the right materials and patterns to highlight the given space. Flooring thus plays a significant role in beautifying the look of the house and giving it character. The cement floorings BFT provides are long lasting, of superior quality and available in a vast range of designs and colours.
Selecting flooring for your space is an important and challenging step as there are a number of flooring and designs options available in the market. At BFT, we have in-house designers to guide you with the perfect flooring solution that matches the interiors of your home and enriches the look and feel of your space.
BFT has a wide variety and range of tiles which are neither printed nor painted; coloured cement materials are hand-poured into divider moulds to create the stunning patterns that have become synonymous with the brand.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING CEMENT?
Cement is incredibly durable. Floors can last up to 60 to 70 years if used and maintained properly. In addition to this, the tiles can be re-polished a number of times during their lifetime and will look as good as new each time this process is repeated. Cement floors can withstand a lot of wear and tear and are perfect for high traffic areas.
These tiles are very easy to take care of. A few simple steps and your flooring is good to go! Avoid using harsh chemicals such as phenyl. Just use plain water and most importantly, change the water often during the mopping process. This will keep the tiles clean, and indeed will ensure your tiles gleam more and more over the years. If you like, you may buy our effective soap solution and use a small capful in each bucket of water for the desired results. A small bottle should last you a long time.
It’s very important to follow these key steps to maintain your flooring so it continues to shine on for years! Beautiful design makes beautiful spaces. Get that floor you’ve always dreamt of with the splendid designs and patterned floors from the extensive BFT range!
