There are many flooring trends that are on the rise in 2023, but one that’s hit the ground running is statement tile! Tile has been the most decorative and versatile surface finish with a variety of shapes, sizes, materials, colors, and patterns. Besides its visual appeal, statement tile is a durable choice that’s easy to clean and perfect for water-prone areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Although statement tile has been popular in kitchens and bathrooms, it’s starting to make its way in other communal spaces that otherwise incorporate carpet or vinyl.
Tile Trends for 2023
If you are looking to breathe new life into your space, lean into these statement tile trends of 2023 to add color and character to your home!
The biggest trend of the new year is graphic tile. It’s all about bold color and personality. The addition of a pattern can fill a room with unique flair and create an impactful design statement just like a work of art. Graphic tile has been seen in backsplashes, mudrooms, bathrooms, showers, and even in kitchens and vignettes. On a recent appearance on KWQC “Paula Sands Live,” President and Owner Eric Langan discussed this popular trend, “It’s 70’s, retro, and they make for a great visual…aged vintage, these are all the buzzwords in tile right now.”
Texture on texture! For eye-catching depth and movement within your space, textured tiles are perfect for additional dimension. Recent tile trends show that more homeowners are opting for more irregular, shifting surfaces rather than those that are smooth and sleek.
Checkerboard has been a classic pattern that has remained timeless for years and is here to stay for 2023. Whether you stick to the traditional black and white or you decide to select vibrant, modern colors, the checkerboard pattern “has now evolved into one of the hottest surface and tile trends within bathrooms.” says Barrie Cutchie, design director at BC Designs.
Luxurious Natural Stone
For a spa-like, luxurious vibe, natural stone is the perfect addition to your space. From onyx, to granite, to marble, these have been a rising trend in bathrooms because of the relaxing and elegant feel they bring. They also bring a calming, indoor-outdoor feel and connection with the outside world, which is a key interior design trend for 2023.
