2. Also, why a tile import company? What gap did you see in the market that felt like a need for one?

Italian and Spanish designer products have always fascinated me. All the new fashion trends in tile start from these 2 countries and is followed by the rest of the world. The exclusive premium luxury tile market is always being dominated by tiles from Spain and Italy. The level of creativity, designs, and quality of the product is unmatchable with the domestic product.

8. Kindly let us through some pro-tips that one can keep in mind while choosing the ideal tiles for their space.

Since tiles form the primary canvas in a designed space, the theme, the colour palette and the mood are a few factors that one needs to prioritise. Also, choosing tiles as per the size of the space is crucial. With such a varied range of tiles available, one must be open to experimentation and trying out different combinations to achieve unique outcomes and feel. Playing with textures can also totally transfuse the overall vibe. So don’t resist experimentations.

9. Lastly, which do you think is the upcoming tile trend as per your predictions?

I think geometric designs will be the next upcoming trend. Even mono colours look promising for the next trend.

This was indeed a very insightful conversation. Contemporary designers are peculiar when it comes to their tile selections. Undoubtedly, it is one of the crucial elements in any kind of designed space- be it modern or traditional. All the more, tiling is something that primarily weaves character into the space. And, timex ceramic is a brand that not only understands these spatial dialects, but also truly imbibes the necessities into the core ethics and products of the brand. No wonder they have emerged as a prosperous company in such a short time span!  Timex Ceramic is a visionary brand with a motive to bring in the best of the worlds to the Indian market. 

We, at The Architect’s Diary, highly recommend such great brands that are an amalgamation of power packed work ethics and are excellent in their product quality and range. These brands cater to every new Gen design ideologies. Apart from catering to everything that is in trend, they become the reasons for the next.
