#1. A New Spin on Classic Marble

Marble is always a timeless tile choice, but in 2020 we’ll see some new variations that make a bold statement. Think oversized, various shapes, and deeper hues to take a classic stone and create a space that’s elevated and out-of-the-box. 

While you can’t go wrong with a classic white Carrara 6″ x 12″ Marble Field Tile, our designers are loving the striking and dramatic effect of the Nero Marquina 6” x 12” Marble Field Tile.  The black with contrasting white veining is such an impactful and time-honored look.

We’re also drawn to the deep hues and moody movement seen in a Bardiglio 6” x 12″ Marble Field Tile.

You’ll also see more than the standard subway tile shape next year. Squares and hexagons are making a major comeback and we love the colorblocking seen in the Kensignton Gray 10-1/8″ x 12″ Marble Mosaic Tile.

#2. Go Big or Go Home

Oversized tiles are a big trend (pun intended) for 2020. They create a classic look on a larger scale. Set aside your vision of standard tile sizes, and move on up to something a bit more unexpected. To try this trend, select colors and textures that you’re typically drawn to in the standard size and increase the scale to make a bigger statement.

#3. Color Is In

Neutrals have their place, but some spaces need an extra pick-me-up in the color department. Colored tiles can be that one detail that makes all the difference. 

We’ll definitely see more colored tiles replacing standard white this year. Some designers are incorporating bright and bold pops of color, while other projects call for dark and moody hues. Remember, a little color goes a long way when it comes to tile.

#4. Make a Statement with Wallpaper Tile

We all know the impact wallpaper can have in a space, and in 2020, we’ll see how tile can make an even more powerful focal point. This year, you’ll see tiles transforming a whole wall to create a huge statement. This trend is one of our personal favorites and it’s going to be huge!

#5. Stay Timeless with the Classics

As much as we love to make a statement, there is a time and place to keep it timeless and classic. Although it doesn’t seem like a ground-breaking trend, it is a great reminder that simple, neutral tiles are ALWAYS on-trend and ALWAYS a good idea.
