Tile trends: a look at metal, stone-look and wall tiles

2017 Tile Trends

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve told you about how wood-look tile was still king and about trends in indoor/outdoor, brick-look and textile-look tiles.

In our final 2017 Tile Trends article, we’ll learn about trends in metal, stone-look and wall tiles that you might want to consider in your next remodel.


Metallic Tile

Metallic tile will be big news in tile for 2017. Metal-look tile has been expanding for several seasons and the offerings just keep getting better. The colors are richer and metallic sheen comes in shine, matte, and light polishes.


Stone-Look Tiles

Marble was what it was all about in 2016 and it’s still at the center of the conversation, but the definition is going broader. 2017 will see grey, beige, black, and brown marble take the front seat. White marble is always a favorite, but the rich colors will make a comeback.

Monochromatic stone will be big business in 2017 as well. Any stone with minimal graphics or movement like limestone, bluestone (a type of limestone), and even-colored slate will be favorites. Stone in different finishes, sizes, and shapes will also be in high demand.


Wall Tiles
As big as wall tile was last year, it will be even bigger this year. More accent walls and more feature walls. Large format tile and bold colors will be the tile of the day on the walls in 2017.

Texture, too, will have a part to play in wall design. 3-dimensional tile designs pop off the wall with living form. It’s more than just texture. Geometric shapes, natural shapes, and linear structure will be the dominant textures on the wall.

Wall tile is getting bigger. With sizes up to 24 x 48 already available and even larger possibly on the way, big, open spaces in commercial designs are the perfect place for these large tiles. Expect to see larger offerings suitable for residential projects too.
