Emerging Tile Trends for 2022
Tuesday, 8 February 2022
The trend this last several years has been grey and muted backgrounds with splashes of accented colour.
We now find stronger, bolder surfaces starting to emerge, particularly pinks, greens and blues.
Alongside these, calming corals with muted, peachy undertones will emerge as this colour encourages us all to embrace our vulnerabilities (and this past two years have highlighted many of these) and envelopes us in feelings of comfort and peace. Coral matches well with the trendiest colour for 2022, pink. Whether it the soft, red sky hues of pacific pink evoking the sun setting on a warm beach holiday or the shockingly vibrant hot pink all combine to create uplifting environments.
At the most recent Cersaie World Tile Fair held in Bologna, Italy the desire to bring nature into the home was unmistakeably the leading trend among tile manufacturers. Many new organic, nature-themed ranges with leafy greens and plant prints were strongly prevalent colours, and these were combined with brighter whites, soft ivory and light cream tones providing a visual comforting warmth.
One big trend that will continue to grow exponentially in 2022 is small format tiles laid in herringbone patterns and these will be heavily utilised for proliferations of the brighter colours that were bursting out to create eye-catching wall and floor features with the sole aim of energising homeowners who wish to personalise their interior design spaces.
