Top Tile Trends for 2020

February 7, 2020

It’s still early in the new year, meaning there’s plenty of time to plan and complete that home improvement project you’ve had your eye on for a while now. If you want to install new tile in your bathroom, kitchen, laundry room or another living space, the first thing you need to do is research your options and get some ideas. Look at pictures of other homeowners’ tiled spaces with the understanding that it’s not a one-size-fits-all sort of project. Many things about tile will vary—including color, materials and patterns—but the good news is that there’s something for everyone.

Here’s what you need to know about the top tile trends for 2020 to ensure successful tile installation in Phoenix, AZ.


The number one trend to consider for tile this year is color. Not too long ago, “greige” (a beige and gray combo) took the top spot. Last year it was coral and other similar hues. In 2020, the tile colors to be on the lookout for are warm and cool neutrals. Designers and home builders will gravitate toward white, gray and ivory, as there is a lot of attention being paid to minimalistic interior design. Also popular is mixing neutral tile colors with home elements and hardware made of brass or other metal.

Patterns and shapes

The past few years have yielded busy flooring and wall tiles. While this trend is still popular, this year will be filled with bold tile patterns and shapes. Homeowners and designers are going to get creative through the floor and wall tile they choose for bathrooms, kitchens and other living spaces. Traditional patterns will also be an option, but 2020 is the year for unconventional tiling.

Imitating materials

Gone are the days when the only tile available was square, solid color and glossy. Today, tile is manufactured to imitate other materials, including natural stone, wood, marble, metal and concrete. The most popular is the stone look, followed by tile with a real-wood look. Decorative concrete tile is also in this new year.

Tile size

Modern-day flooring and wall tiles are readily available in a variety of sizes. Small and square, long and beveled, large format and other sizes and dimensions will gain popularity in both homes and commercial spaces in 2020. More size options along with color and shape varieties allow people to express their style in a whole new way.

Popular trends

Contemporary style trends of 2020 will bring traditional ceramic materials like large-format modernized marble for countertops, vanities and walls. And if you’re looking for a material that looks like natural lumber, but that’s also hard and durable, tile that mimics wood is for you. This look is perfect for many applications, especially floors.
