Think natural

Historically, brick-looking floors were made of bricks and hardwood floors were made of wood. This year, wood and brick looking floors that are actually made of tile are on the rise. These materials are great because they give your space a homey, natural look with the added benefits of durability and easiness to clean that only tile can offer.

Change up the pattern

Some people like simple, staid patterns in their homes and prefer to spruce up their spaces with wall hangings, photos, and other types of decorations. In 2017, many people are opting to buck that trend and use patterned tiles to add some flair to their space. Patterned tile is a great way to add some color to your kitchen or bathroom so you won’t have to worry about decorating blank spaces.

Add some color

Expect to see floors, bathrooms, and other tile spaces full of color this year. Using bright tile in your space is another easy way to add color and flair to white rooms and blank walls. For those who really like something funky and avant-garde, mixing and matching is another trend on the rise. Whether you want a little more flair with black and white tiles or to really brighten up a space with various bright colors, colorful tiles are in a great choice this year.

Large tiles are becoming more and more popular. These tiles add a unique look to your space with the added benefit of being easier to clean. If you’re looking for something more bold, consider combining one of the other trends with bigger tiles. This will give your space a bright new look for years to come.

Think outside the square

The vast majority of tile is square, but this year that’s changing. Incorporating new shapes of tile including hexagons, round edges, and other types of shapes can add an edgy look to your space without getting too far out of the ordinary.
