2017 Design Trends


Last year, Social Media erupted with crisp kitchens and chic bathrooms possessing gorgeous marble countertops, subway tile, wood beams and brass accents. The general movement is simple and clean with a pop of pattern, playful shapes and a variety of texture adding a punch of personality to a somewhat neutral color palette.

If you are building, planning a renovation or wanting design inspiration, the trends we are seeing will help create an interesting space that will have your home looking like a designer’s dream.

Here are some of our favorite tile trends in 2017:

Pattern Tile

With straight lines and solid hard surfaces a pattern tile will create softness.
We have seen the use of white and grey the past several years and although we are not predicting them to go away anytime soon, pattern tile can bring in personality to a monochromatic color scheme.

We recently brought on a pattern tile to our private collection: Mediterranean.


Playful Shapes

Hexagons, pickets and arabesque, OH MY! These fun shapes can add to an ordinary space an unexpected design detail. The most popular being the hexagon, no matter the size or on the floor or wall, it will inject classic design that will continue to be on trend.

A Pop of Color!

Splashes of color can make an instant transformation to an all white kitchen or bath. Emerald green and dark blue to name a few, these rich colors are being used to make a bold statement. We have a large-format Turquoise Subway tile that’s popular in both bathroom and kitchens.

Creative Layouts

Creating a modern or whimsical layout with the typical subway tile along with having various sizes and textures can change the “same ole” to something new and fresh.
