Large Tile Trend | Design with Large Floor and Wall Tiles

Don’t sleep on the large tile trend! Large-format tiles have been popular in commercial designs for quite some time but this trend is getting increasingly popular in residential design. Large tiles are defined as “any tile that has at least one edge greater than 15 inches.”  There are numerous reasons why this tile trend is gaining popularity with the main reason being the amazing design style it gives and the overall convenience.

Larger tiles mean fewer grout lines and a cleaner look. Design-wise, large tiles give a more aesthetically pleasing look as well. Combined with the fact that larger format tiles take less time to install as they cover more square footage, it’s no wonder why they are quickly gaining popularity among many designers & homeowners!
