Styles & Pattern

Popular Tile Styles And Trends For Your 2021 Renovations

Highly decorative tiles are popular in 2021 that are sure to create a wow factor and help you design your dream space. With so many options, we expect to see tiles that look like other materials: wood, stone, marble, and concrete. Patterned tiles can mimic art-deco, Moroccan, Terrazzo-look, and Encaustic-look.  Major trends in this area include graphic patterned tile; matte tiles for a more natural, finished look; neutral tiles that can be placed anywhere in the space; large subway tile with a darker grout color.  All these styles contribute to the design and should be planned in coordination with an interior design professional to assure your room doesn’t look too busy.


It goes without saying that tile color immediately draws the eye. Some of the hottest trends in 2021 include light neutrals – grays, white, and blue. The high variations and cool tones never go out of style. When it comes to choosing tile colors, it should be timeless, capturing the personality of the owner’s style

Layouts & Sizes

Tile flooring that looks like concrete is also trendy. There is still a huge demand for the earthy, stone, and metal design, while concrete style is a go-to if you’re looking for flooring that’s very trendy. 

Tile Shapes

Bold,  fan, round, diamond, arabesque, subway, linear, and triangle & geometric shapes are trendy in 2021 as most of the homeowners are looking for something different.  A really hot trend is hexagonal tiling, which can add a three-dimensional look when installed correctly.
