Here are five tile trends you can expect to see in homes, office buildings, and outdoor spaces near you in 2020.
1. Modernized Marble
Traditional-inspired ceramic materials, such as marble, modernized to contemporary styles, with luxurious designs typically reserved for floor tiles converted into large ceramic slabs for countertops, bathroom vanities, walls, and more.
2. Wood Look Reinvented
The natural wood look that has been a staple in the tile industry for years reinvented in an abundance of colors and details and used on walls and countertops.
3. Industrial Chic
Concrete and stone-look tile used to give environments a chic aesthetic and urban look.
4. Large-Scale Patterns
A shift toward ceramic tiles with big, bold patterns that instantly catch the eye and turn surfaces into true works of art.
