3 Tile Trends for 2016



Do you know which two rooms are the most important spaces to design well in your home? That’s right: the kitchen and the master bath. What do these two rooms have in common? Tile.

If you’re planning a kitchen design upgrade or a master bathroom makeover, you’re going to want to stay up-to-date with these hot tiling trends in interior design, which were reported at the 2016 International Tile Show.

PORCELAIN IS IN

Porcelain tile is all the rage these days—and it’s not so much a trend as it is a reflection of the innovative technology that’s enabled porcelain to mimic natural materials or textiles. Italian and Spanish tile-makers in particular have been on the leading edge experimenting with truly fun tile designs—even printing to create a 3D effect on flat tile.

GO BIG & GO HOME

Large-format tile is also becoming increasingly popular in current home design trends. More and more people are looking to install 24x48 tile to create a sophisticated-yet-bold statement with their interior design.

THE HANDMADE LOOK

We’ve noticed a resurgence of handmade materials that offer a high-end-yet-lived-in look. A home that incorporates tile with rough edges and seemingly hand-painted details gives off an earthy vibe—an organic, worldly look that expands the depth of visual impact.
