Whether designers go with modernized marble or ceramic tiles that are dead-ringers for natural wood, one thing is for certain: Tiles are going bold for 2020. Much like the resurfacing of colors in kitchens and the penchant for splashy backsplashes, kitchen and bath tile looks are not shying away from unique patterns, textures, and accent colors. If you have any kitchen or bath projects planned for the new year, these are trendy looks that you can use to guide your search—if you don’t fall in love with these exact tiles on the spot.
Look around your home. You’ll probably find ceramic or porcelain tile in at least one room. It’s among the most popular building materials in the world today and is commonly used in American kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and entry foyers. (It’s used more widely around the house in other parts of the world.) These materials are durable and low maintenance, especially when installed with minimal grout lines or in oversized slabs, and make excellent surfaces for wellness design spaces.
If you’re thinking of starting a residential building or remodeling project this year, you’ll likely be choosing some tile to cover your floors, walls or both. Here are the top 10 tile trends for 2020 (in no particular order). Go with the ones that fit the rest of your design scheme so everything comes together beautifully.
Modernized Marble: Traditional-inspired ceramic materials, such as emulated marble, have been modernized to adapt to today’s contemporary and eclectic styles. They create a dramatic look without the dramatic price tag (or maintenance) of their natural counterparts.
