Tile has historically been cast as the go-to flooring for kitchens and bathrooms. But this year, tile is reinventing its career. With its limited amount of maintenance, extremely high durability, and great, new looks, you’ll want to consider tile for many more roles. Tile flooring can make a splash in any room in your home.
This classic tile combo is making a big comeback in bigger, bolder styles. You’ll find new patterns, such as chevron, bold stripes, subway tiles, small tiles, and more. If you’re looking for that vintage, urban farmhouse look (which is really in right now), black and white is the ideal choice.
Mosaic tiles are the perfect way to add an extra touch of style to the room. A mosaic pattern is a great way to bring a room’s color palette together. It’ll show off your artistic side in a simple yet bold way.
Large-format tiles are growing in popularity as they make a statement in any space—from the entryway to the bedroom. This year you’ll find 48x48-inch, 30x60-inch, and 24x48-inch slabs to be the new norm. So, make a statement, because bigger truly is better.
Vintage styles and repurposed tile are becoming more popular in today’s homes. Whether its recycled tile, vintage tile, or an artisanal Mediterranean ornament, infusing an old element with a bold, new tile is a popular combination to add that extra pop of personality to any room.
Rather than the classic square- and rectangular-shaped tiles, many homes are trying out a new shape: the hexagon. This modern trend can change even the simplest design to an elevated one. Hexagonal tiles will catch the eye whether they’re on the floor, or the walls.
And finally, one of the biggest tile trends of 2020 is wood grain tile. It mimics the appearance of natural hardwood for almost half the price. And if you love the look of hardwood but find the maintenance and lack of durability to be an issue, tile is a great solution. No matter which type of hardwood you prefer, there’s a wood grain tile to match your preferences. Woodgrain tile. It’s a win-win.
