Wallpaper effects, murals, art deco, baroque, large format terrazzo tiles, both earthy neutral and happy colors like yellow and other pastels and metallics are just some of what you’ll see in the tile store in 2022. Stylish and sophisticated, porcelain and ceramic are also durable, easy to clean, and, when maintained properly, will last at least 50 years. Here's a brief rundown on some of what you'll see in the next year.
The tile industry listened hard to peoples' concerns, developed highly designed and stylish lines, and included anti-bacterial technology, such as Microban and EpicClean.
One of the great benefits of this natural, chemical-free material has always been easy cleanability; dirt and grime have no place to hide so that you can wipe these substances away easily. However, as people became more aware of bacteria and germs than ever, the industry addressed the concerns.
Homage to Mother Nature!
Green, green everywhere! The new buzzword of the design industry refers to the connection of nature, called Biophilia. You'll see anything that reminds us of nature, including floral, fauna, foliage, and jungle prints, all in distinctive shapes, like pebbles, and with textures and finishes. You’re going to see a lot of these in your tile shop.
Large wood-look planks
The wood-and-wood-look trend is expected for at least 15-20 years, and these tiles combine natural wood beauty and functionality. They come with raised grains and in assorted colors and textures and, while they can be cut into planks of any size, given that wider boards are so popular, you can expect to see a lot of wide planks in 2022.
The trend continues, and they keep getting larger and larger; some can even get as big as 20 X 25. It rides on another trend, that of the stone slab look, so you'll see these pieces on floors, walls, and counters.
