Bathroom Tile Trends We’ll Be Seeing in 2021

As we close the door on 2020 and head into a new year, we can’t help but get excited about some of the interior design trends we’ll be seeing in 2021! There are some beautiful tile trends that we’re here to share. If you’re planning to renovate your bathroom in the next year, we have some gorgeous tile trends that you’ll want to consider. Although these are considered “trendy,” we’ve picked some of our favorites that also give a timeless look, and will look amazing in your bathroom for years to come. Many of these trends emphasize getting creative with patterns, colors, shapes, and configurations. Check out some of these tile trends for your bathroom below! 

Creative Patterns

We’ve seen patterned tiles becoming more and more popular over the years, and we don’t see that changing anytime soon! Using geometric patterns on the floors or walls adds an extra touch of depth and uniqueness to any space. It allows homeowners to get a little imaginative and create something that suits their style. Bold prints and intricate patterns will be a popular trend for tiles in 2021. 

All About the Neutrals

Conversely, we’re also expecting to see neutrals continue to be a popular trend, as the elements of modern design prefer muted tones. Whites, greys, creams, beige, and light neutral colors will all be popular choices for bathroom tile. These colors create a calming, relaxing ambiance in your space. 

Matte Tiles

To keep with the theme of neutral tones, matte tiles continue to gain popularity. The soft, but powerful look of matte is intriguing. Homeowners love matte tiles, as the water stains and spots don’t show on it, as they would with a glossy ceramic tile. This makes them great for bathroom floors or showers. Since sometimes matte tiles don’t reflect light, they’re best used in a space where there’s plenty of light, whether it be natural or artificial. 

Upgraded Subway Tiles

Subway tiles have been around for years, but this year they’re getting a little extra “pizazz!” Say goodbye to the boring ordinary subway tiles, and check out some of the newer trends including more colors, larger sizes, and design patterns. We’re seeing metro tiles get thicker and longer for a more drastic effect. Pairing it with a contrasting grout color can also give it just the extra pop that it needs! 

Color, Color, Color!

While neutrals will always have their place in interior design, many homeowners are starting to appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of bold tile colors! From yellows to blue, reds, and beyond, colorful tiles are certainly something to consider for your next home renovation.

Why Tile is a Good Choice for the Bathroom

For the average homeowner, the bathroom can prove to be particularly tricky to design. From finding fixtures to choosing a color scheme, it’s hard to know where to even start. If you’re at the point of considering flooring for the bathroom, here are a few things you need to know about why tile is a good choice.

Durability

Whether you’re choosing porcelain tiles or ceramic tiles, you can expect high durability in the bathroom. Most tiles are made out of clay and then fired at high heats to harden. This process also makes it less porous (which we will get to in a minute). The durability makes tile perfect for bathrooms, where there is generally a lot of movement and moisture. When installed correctly, the tile should last a long time in the bathroom.

Easy to clean

Tiles explicitly made for the bathroom are going to be the easiest to clean. Remember how we mentioned that firing keeps the tile less porous? Fewer pores mean a smoother surface, less staining, and easier cleaning. Due to the finish, there is also no need for harsh cleaners and chemicals.

Versatility

Tiles come in virtually all colors, sizes, shapes, and finishes. This means that you don’t have to sacrifice on style in favor of a high performing durable surface in the bathroom. Plus, tiles are customizable and able to mix and match. The possibilities are virtually endless.

Hypoallergenic

It’s unlikely that you would consider putting carpet in the bathroom, especially as carpet is one of the major offenders for allergies. But even wood flooring and linoleum can be traps for allergens and mold growth. In the bathroom, where conditions are particularly humid most of the time, it is crucial to prevent allergen growth. Tiles, with their smooth surface and easy-to-clean qualities, will help this.

Environmentally friendly

Porcelain and ceramic tiles used in the bathroom both come from natural clay sources that do not require intense industrial extraction. Tiles also do not result in or emit any toxic fumes or substances. And because of their durability and low maintenance, their life span more than makes up for the energy used to make them.
