If you want to know what will be trending underfoot when it comes to ceramic tiles, you have to visit the world's largest ceramic tile fair, Cersaie, held annually in Bologna, Italy.
The fair brings together more than 500 exhibitors to showcase the latest the tile industry has to offer.
Over the course of this year's five-day event, several trends emerged.

Beyond these technological advances, several style trends were apparent this year. We round up our five favourite tile trends below.
