Top 5 Tile Trends for 2020

One day a year Emser Tile and KB Home have the opportunity to invite you into the world of tile, so you can experience just how they live out their passion all year long. With a new decade comes new design trends, so in celebration of National Tile Day on February 23rd, Emser Tile and KB Home have once again teamed up to bring you the hottest tile trends for 2020:

#1 Patterned Statement Tiles

This trend is all about creating a show stopping, unique look. From florals to geometrics it won’t be hard to find an eclectic pattern that fits your style. However, the printed design on the tile isn’t the only way to spice up your space - the cut of the tile and arrangement of installation allows one to express their own personal style creating that one-of-a-kind look.

#2 Textured Tiles

It’s not only about how your tile looks, but how does it feel? Whether it’s a soft-to-the-touch tile that’s perfect for flooring or 3-dimensional tile that jumps off the wall, textured tile is on the rise in 2020. There is a different experience to be had with all different materials – stone, glass, metal and ceramic.

#3 Naturally Inspired Tiles

This category incorporates two trends in one – both wood and stone. The benefit of a wood inspired tile is the ability to have both the durability of porcelain and the natural design of wood. Using HD technology it’s possible to artfully recreate the earthy tones and grains found in real wood. When it comes to stone, there is so much to offer – strength, luxury and natural beauty. Whether indoors or out, you cannot go wrong with the natural veining and layered textures of stone.

#4 Large Format Tiles

Small tiles will be taking a backseat this year, as large format tiles take the lead. This popular trend will be seen throughout residential and commercial designs in 2020. Why is this a beloved style? It’s the minimalistic seam-lines that make them a favored choice for modern designs.

#5 Colorful Tiles

Blue is already proving its acclaimed status this year with the Pantone Color-of-the-Year, Classic Blue and Sherwin Williams Color-of-the-Year, Naval. Blue is also making its mark in the tile world. This year you’ll have countless tile options to add the calming tones of blue into your space.
