The year is almost over, and it’s time to dive into 2023’s upcoming tile trends! From vertical subway tile to terrazzo, honey onyx, and floral designs, there’s plenty to look forward to.

1.   Vertical Subway Wall Tile

Subway tile has been in style for well over 100 years, but in 2023, you’ll see people switching up the traditional horizontal orientation in favor of vertical lines. Not only does this create a fresh, unique aesthetic, but it makes the space look taller by drawing the eye upward.

2.   Geometric Tile

You might remember that geometric tile was a trend for 2022, and it’s sticking around for 2023! Designers just can’t get enough of hexagons, diamonds, triangles, and other tile shapes. Even if you prefer to stick with neutral colors, a new shape can add visual interest to the room.

3.   Patterned Tile

Patterns have been all the rage in tile trends lately, and they’ll continue to be popular in 2023. Moroccan-inspired designs and colors are especially trendy. They can be used for flooring or feature walls for a truly bold, attention-grabbing statement.

4.   Large-Format Terrazzo Tile

Terrazzo tile has gone through phases of being in and out of style, but in 2023, it’s most decidedly on-trend. Designers are especially loving large-format terrazzo with minimal grout lines. Large tiles can make a space look and feel larger, and an added bonus is that they’re easier to clean.

5.   Honey Onyx Tile

Natural stone is a truly timeless tile option, but in 2023, you’ll be seeing a lot more onyx–and honey onyx in particular. This radiant stone contains shades of luminous yellow, orange, and gold. It’s light, bright, and opulent, perfect for adding a touch of glamour to your home.

6.   Wood-Look Tile

Forever Mood 8x48 Porcelain Tile

Gone are the days of all-white bathrooms. In 2023, we’re bringing warmth back into the space, starting with wood flooring. But because real wood isn’t the best choice for bathrooms as it’s easily damaged by moisture, wood-look porcelain tile is the perfect alternative to get the look with much-improved durability.

7.   Tile with Metallic Accents

Glam Thassos White and Gold Brass Chevron Marble Mosaic

In the upcoming year, you’ll notice that fixtures and hardware are beginning to take the spotlight, making room for all sorts of metallic accents. Embrace this trend by selecting tile mosaics that incorporate metal elements, like the Thassos white marble and gold brass option pictured above.

8.   Floral Tile

Ronda Leaves 8x8 Porcelain Tile

Floral tile with large patterns is making an interior design comeback, with tiles containing shades of blue and green being especially popular. Floral is bold, graphic, and sure to make a statement, whether you use it on walls, floors, or even as a backsplash.

9.   Tile in Rich Earth Tones

2023 is welcoming rich color back into the mix, specifically natural shades and deep reds, blues, and yellows. Connecting to nature through interior design can decrease stress levels and increase productivity, which is an excellent reason to add some earth tones to your space.

10.                Glass Tile on Walls and in Showers

After the stress of the pandemic, many are looking to embody tranquility and relaxation in their interior design choices. Transform your home into a spa-like environment with a glass tile shower and walls. While glass isn’t the best choice for floor tile, its luminescence makes it a gorgeous choice for other applications.
