Tiles have been a staple for interior designers and builders for years. After all, they’re a fun, stylish way to breathe new life into your home. With a wide range of colors, prints, shapes, and textures, the custom tile is perfect for adding a unique style and flair to your living space.
So what are the next hottest trends for custom tiles in 2021? We’ve put together our top 5 custom tile trends of 2021.
Natural wood look
Natural wood flooring has been a popular choice for many years, but it’s not a material that works well in damp areas. But thanks to modern technology, you can now have timber in your bathroom – with a wood-look tile!
New wood-look tiles offer an abundance of colors, textures, and grains to suit any space. And the natural feel of the tiles evokes a calm environment and a sense of nature.
Block colors and hexagons
Bold and bright block colors are all the rage for bathrooms this year. And what better way to encapsulate the new trend than with custom tiles.
Choose matte tiles for this strong look, rather than high-gloss. They will be easier to keep clean and won’t show any scuff marks. Instead of the standard square tiles, get creative with hexagon shapes. They’ll add interest and depth to your fun feature wall.
Stone and marble
Tiles that look like natural stone and marble are still a strong trend in 2021. But what’s becoming even more popular are extra-large ceramic tiles. These tiles are designed to look like big slabs of marble or stone, creating a seamless, clean look.
Printing technology has advanced so much that now you can match your existing shower walls or counters to your new tiles. And unlike natural stone, tiles are non-porous and low maintenance – perfect for a busy family home!
Blending indoors with outdoors
Creating a harmonious flow from indoor to outdoor in the home is one of the biggest trends of 2021. And tiles are the perfect choice for blending the indoors with the outdoors.
Choose tiles that can be used both inside and out, and opt for larger format tiles. And remember to keep the same style, color, and pattern of tile throughout the home and outdoors. This helps make your home feel ‘whole.’
Black is back!
Black never goes out of style. And when it comes to your bathroom, a black – or very dark – tiled bathroom is the biggest trend of 2021.
Pick a black tile with blue or purple tones – this gives them a cool, clean feel that contrasts beautifully against wood hues and warm neutral colors. It also gives your bathroom enough warmth that it won’t look imposing or confining.
