2013 Trends in Tile

Have you noticed that the top trends emerging in the tile market are tiles with depth and movement, large-format tiles and tiles that look worn and weathered?

I think these three trends will stay strong well into next year. One of the best ways to incorporate these looks without being too trendy is by incorporating large beveled subway tiles.  The new Oxford Tile from Marazzi  fulfills both the depth and large-format design trends.


I like this contemporary takeonan old classic butif you prefer something smaller, there are tiles available with deep bevels in a more manageable size such as the Flatiron Collection from Ken Mason Tile. These handmade tiles come in gorgeous colors and wonderful metallic shades.

I particularly like this diamond pattern shown in Matador Red. The 4” x 8.5” size is large enough to make an impact but small enough to work in tight spaces such as backsplashes.
