With the ability to transform any space, tile is a go-to for designers who are looking to add interest in any space. In addition to its beauty, tile adds a layer of functionality creating waterproof barriers as a flooring choice and in the form of wet rooms, showers, and bar and kitchen backsplashes.

Expected to climb in further popularity this year, Ashley Biscan, senior manager in Floor & Décor’s marketing department responsible for trends, says, “This year we are going to see even more of a tile takeover—as tiles make their way onto walls, curved ceilings, and areas beyond the shower and backsplash.”

In both Floor & Décor’s 2024 Trend Lookbook and Emser Tile’s 2024 Trend Report, “quiet luxury” and natural elements are highlighted as top trends. On the opposite end of the spectrum, bold colors and patterns are reviving as common picks for any application in the home.

Below, find six tile trends for 2024 and products inspired by the trends.

Emser Tile

Back to Nature
Influenced by the outdoors, tiles are taking the profile of pebbles, natural fibers, wood, and stone. Embracing hues of nature, the trend can create a serene atmosphere, especially in bathroom settings. As a part of the Enhance by Emser Tile line, the Corrazzo ceramic wall tile collection is available in two sizes—2 inches by 10 inches and 5 inches by 5 inches. The collection, available in early March, offers 10 colors all nodding to nature in warm neutral shades to blues, greens, and sunset hues. emser.com

Walker Zanger

Dimensional Texture
Texture, especially three-dimensional, builds a level of intrigue. Whether applied on shower walls or kitchen backsplashes, fluted or raised patterns can elevate any area. Walker Zanger’s Geometric collection of three-dimensional marble tiles redefines conventional design in this way. Offering a range of four colors, the collection of natural stone is available in 12-inch by 24-inch fluted tiles and 6-inch by 12-inch prism tile patterns. The Rosso Levanto color variation pictured is characterized by a rich red hue and white veining with touches of black and gray. walkerzanger.com

American Olean

Maximizing Patterns
Creating a striking statement, geometric shapes and artistic motifs can make a space memorable and lively. From pre-made patterns to those created by tile arrangement, patterned tile adds energy and personality. American Olean’s Clarasea collection of glazed porcelain floor tile and glazed ceramic mosaics is inspired by the 1920s. The collection’s geometric designs are dotted with metallic accents. In three different design styles all featuring black and white marble, inlays range from gold, brass, and/or satin nickle and can be applied from floors to walls to countertops. americanolean.com

Country Floors

Moody Color
Incorporating dark tones into a room can give instill indulgent and moody grandeur. Deeply saturated hues of blues, greens, blacks, and burgundies are considered on trend this year. The Verde Tia honed marble collection from Country Floors can be applied to backsplashes, floors, and showers to infuse lush and dark green marble into a home. The collection comes in an array of tiles, mosaics, and moldings, in various sizes and patterns. Some mosaics are available with brass accents to add a touch of midcentury luxury. countryfloors.com


Mix and Match
As many collections offer a range of tile sizes and orientations, the trend of mixing and matching shapes and sizes is easily achieved this year. To press the trend further, a combination of colors creates an eclectic yet welcoming environment. Earthy hues continue to rise in popularity this year as Marazzi’s Rhyme and Reason collection, featuring a rich biophilic color palette, is available in a variety of textures allowing homeowners to curate a unique space. Made in the United States, the collection is available in 6-inch by 6-inch and 4-inch by 5-inch glazed ceramic wall tile, with a coordinating jolly to finish a look. marazziusa.com
