The Wood Look

Using wood in interior design adds coziness to a room, and now ceramic and porcelain tile is available with a wood look.  Ceramic or porcelain tile with a wood grain gives a rich look and provides durability. Wood tile is timeless – its beauty never goes out of style. Wood tile looks modern as flooring with the tiles laid in planks, and it’s also starting to make an appearance on kitchen walls as well! The newest trends in wood tile are reclaimed (or distressed) and cross-grain.

The Brick Look

Most brick is reserved for the wall, but now we are seeing more and more brick tiling on floors. There are a few different brick looks in tile that you should watch out for this year, such as painted and distressed (see below). Distressed brick tile has a rustic look works well with the other natural colors in your kitchen.

Painted Brick

If your style is retro, painted brick is currently trending in kitchen designs. The wide assortment of colors and finish styles make it a great fit for almost any color scheme.

Rustic (or Distressed) Brick

Rustic brick tile is coming back and is predicted to be a big hit this upcoming year. It adds a natural look to your kitchen backsplash or floor.

Wall Tile Throughout the Kitchen

Tile isn’t limited to just floors and backsplashes anymore. One of the newest trends is having wall tile as part of the walls in your kitchen. Almost any tile can be used in this capacity. No matter what your look, you’ll find a wall tile that will complement your kitchen.

3D Wall Tiles

3D wall tiles are becoming quite popular, due to their ability to add texture to a wall or backsplash. Popular styles are geometric and mosaic patterns. The designs are sure to accentuate your kitchen walls!

Metallic Wall Tiles

If you’re going for a dramatic look in your kitchen, consider going with metallic tile. Not only is metallic tile a big hit on the floor, but it’s also climbing the walls! Even a small bit of metallic is proving to be a huge hit in kitchens everywhere this year. A stainless steel backsplash can highlight the other stainless steel features and appliances in your kitchen.

Medallions – Floor Medallions and Wall Medallions

A very popular trend that makes kitchens (foyers, too) look unique is using a medallion tile design as a focal point. From marble, granite, and travertine tile, you can create a mosaic design with details that make the medallion a work of art.  Medallions can be round or oval, square or rectangle, and are available in endless colors and designs we can customize for your space. Medallions can be used on floors as well as borders and backsplashes. Many kitchen designs feature a medallion above the cooktop or range.

Trending Tile Sizes and Tile Shapes

There are so many more choices in tile size, from a porcelain mosaic tile to subway tile and stick glass mosaic tiles. Create an eye-catching design while protecting your walls from spills and splashes. From stacked to alternating to random placement, the possibilities are open to your imagination.

These are just a few of the tile design trends for kitchens you might want to consider for your kitchen remodeling project. From metallic or 3D tiles on the walls to wood or painted brick tile on the floors, this year is shaping up to be a great one for kitchen remodels and kitchen designs everywhere.
