Top Tile Trends of 2022 | Trendy Tile Designs

Another year means another year of design trends coming and going. Keeping up with design trends can be difficult, especially when it comes to tiles. There’s such a wide array of tile options out there that it can be hard to distinguish which tiles are gaining popularity and how they can be applied in your home. Check out the rest of our blog where we break down tile trends of 2022 and how they can translate into your home. 

Trending Colors 

We can’t talk about trending tiles without talking about trending design colors for the year. 2022 has had a huge influx of homeowners shying away from grays and white and embracing colors, specifically earth jewel tones and soft pastels. Greens in particular are making a huge comeback as the Cottagecore interior design style gains popularity and the interior design world leans more into the natural decor.

Geometric Tiles 

Geometric shapes are back like they never left! Geometric shapes add interest and variety to your interior design. While regular-shaped subway tiles are classic, geometric tiles are unexpected and modernize a space which has caused them to gain popularity. We are seeing this trend pop up in backsplashes and wall tiles as a simple but effective way to update a space. This is a great design option for those who don’t want to go too bold in color but still want to incorporate more modern design into their home

Floor to Wall Tiles 

Go big or go home when it comes to tile. Floor to wall tile has become increasingly popular this year and has been a major 202 tile trend for bathrooms. Extending your floor tile to your wall tile is an easy way to create a cohesive-looking bathroom. The extension of tile to the wall also creates a more luxurious look that is more tailored and custom to the homeowner.

Textured & 3D Tile 

One-dimensional tile is where design trends start but textured and 3D tile is the leveled up version of this trend. Textured and 3D tile not only adds more dimension to your space but the texture adds dramatic interest to any space the tile is placed in.

Embrace the Matte 

We all love a good glossy tile, but this year is all about the matte tile. Matte tiles create a unique atmosphere without overshadowing the rest of your home design. They are contemporary while still being timeless.

Patterned Tile 

Patterned tile is timeless but different pattern design trends come and go. In recent years encaustic tiles have reigned supreme but this year we’ve seen the patterned tile trends modernize. Geometric shapes with patterns are gaining popularity as designers continue to combine two trending tile design trends.
