Trending Tile Styles for 2022
If you’re looking for fresh ways to spruce up your décor, you should know that tile is having a moment right now. And why not? Tile is an easy way to bring a new look to a room, and it has an advantage over paint because it brings texture along with its color. How will you incorporate tile into your home? Here are some of the trends we’re seeing in 2022.
Interestingly, in terms of décor style, tile is going in two different directions this year. The first trend is to have it match its surroundings in a very precise way. Just as there’s a trend to match wallpaper with nearby upholstery or window treatments, tile is being incorporated into these matchy-matchy design schemes. In some cases, the tile is literally carried from the floor to the wall or the wall to the ceiling. However, there’s also a trend to use tile as a mix and match accent. It’s showing up in unexpected places, too, like the entire body of a kitchen island or the back of a bookshelf.
Bolder colors are in play this year, making even basic tile layouts look trendy. If you’ve grown tired of the all-white kitchen or overdone neutrals, you may be excited about the jewel-toned tiles we’re seeing in 2022. Teal, mustard yellow, and rust are just a few of the vibrant colors being used to liven up rooms, and even just putting a few brightly colored tiles around a fireplace can make a big difference in a room’s appeal.
If bright colors make you nervous and you’d rather stick to neutrals, you can still revamp your tile without ditching your personal style. You could play with splashes of color amidst your beloved neutrals, or update your home’s look with interesting shapes and finishes. This year, tile is trending towards playfulness, mixing different styles and shapes for a more exciting look. It could be rectangular tile on the floor with circular penny tiles around the sink, or hexagons in the shower and a chevron pattern on the wall.
How will you jump on this year’s tile trends? If you’re not ready to take too big of a leap, consider refreshing your laundry room with a mixture of bright colors and interesting shapes. Or put tile somewhere unexpected, maybe getting rid of your kitchen’s tile backsplash but tiling the kitchen island. Using your imagination seems to be the big idea this year in tile.
