Colored Tiling

A new year is here and for many of us, that means new tiling. If you want to update the look of your tile wall and floors, you’ll want to get onboard with the hottest looks of 2022. Here are some that designers are predicting will be big for the coming seasons.

Blue Tiling

Blue has been a hot color in home décor. It is vibrant yet calming and it is one of the few non-neutrals that bring the outside in. For a contemporary look, go for gray blue that adds drama and goes with just about everything.

And don’t worry about blue going out of style. It’s expected to stick around well into the future.

Color Variations

Color variations are showing up in marbleized and faux wood looks. Picture tiles that go from lighter to darker browns or grays to mimic the appearance of these natural elements. Fun and funky colors like pinks and blues will work as well.

Muted, Natural Colors

If you prefer to play it safe, a muted natural color tiling like brown or beige is the way to go. While this may not be the most innovative style, it won’t be going off trend any time soon. And it’s sure to match your other décor perfectly.


Geometrics became a trendy look a few years back and they are still in style today. Here, we are not only talking about tiles painted with various shapes, we’re talking about tiles that actually form these shapes.

For instance, hexagon tiles are a style that’s very in.  They look great in bold neutrals like blacks, whites and grays and you can even integrate a splash of color.

Fan Tile

Fan tile is a retro look that’s being seen more in recent years. Also called fish scale or scallop tile, these are rounded, fish-scale like shapes that are layered against each other to create a unique look that takes you back. It’s a great design for integrating vibrant, bold, contrasting colors.

Subway Tile

Anyone who has ridden the subway is familiar with these stark while rectangular tiles typically complemented by a black grout. They provide a vintage yet classic look and they are not likely to go out of style anytime soon. And while white is the traditional color for subway tile, that doesn’t mean you can’t go outside the box and have some fun with color.

Arabesque Tile

These curly, diamond shaped tiles provide a soft elegance that’s great for making an impression in any room. They work well in entryways, kitchens, bathrooms and more. Use contrasting grout to really make it pop. You can use arabesque mosaic to cover the entire floor or use it to create an accent section at key focal points.
