Top Tile Trends for Summer 2022
With summer just around the corner, you may be inspired to update your home with the latest tile trends. Summer 2022 is an exciting time for interiors with so many new trends emerging, while timeless trends are also enjoying a Renaissance. We have compiled a list of the most popular designs, shapes and colours to help you choose your new tile this season.
Get the skinny
Skinny format tiles give more life to a room and can also make a fabulous feature wall. Their great visual impact will create a playful vibe that’s perfect for summer. For example, our Piano Grey Mosaic sheet tiles will make a statement in any room of your home. They look particularly beautiful when coordinated with pops of bright summer colours. For a more classic look, these tiles are also available in white.
The wood effect
Timeless wood effect tiles are reminiscent of a garden deck or beach hut, reminding us of holiday travels. The neutral tone of wood effect is also popular during the summer months as it instills a sense of relaxation into the home as you enjoy longer days. Our extensive range of wood effect tiles come in range of neutral colours, from greys to browns. As they are made from porcelain, they are also excellent at withstanding heat, much more so than natural wood. This makes them as durable as they are beautiful. Use to tile your floor, or create a feature wall.
Still hot for Summer 2022, gloss tiles will never go out of style. With a clean smooth finish, they are perfect for adding a touch of glamour to your kitchen or bathroom. They also reflect the light, so they have a cooling effect on a room which is perfect for summer. Their light reflective properties mean they are especially good for small bathrooms, as they create the illusion of more space.
A particularly popular gloss tile for summer 2022 is the classy marble effect tile. Marble creates a feeling of luxury to any room, embodying the vibe of a luxurious exotic retreat; it is no wonder why these traditional tiles have had a recent revival.
Bring the Med home with Mosaic Tiles
Mosaic tiles help to create an intricate wall design, so they are ideal for creating an eye-catching feature in your bathroom, or a kitchen backsplash. Perfect for summer, they are reminiscent of a Mediterranean villa. This allows you to recreate the mood of a holiday getaway from the comfort of your own home.
If want the next big thing in bright, bold textures and patterns, the hexagon tile is for you! Also known as the honeycomb tile, this on-trend geometric design adds depth to a contemporary space. It has quickly grown in popularity for being so versatile, as it can be incorporated into any design. This makes it an interior design must-have for Summer 2022. We stock a range of stunning hexagon tiles in a range of colours and patterns. Browse the range here to find the perfect one for your space.
Unleash your creativity with patterns
Whether you choose to lay them on the floor or the wall, patterned tiles act as a beautiful accent feature anywhere. They have become very popular in time for summer as there are so many styles to choose from, allowing you to go for a statement, colourful look or a more subtle, traditional design. You can also use them in any room of the house – the possibilities are endless! This summer’s trending pattern is inspired by Moroccao, which will add vivid yet elegant colour to your bathroom, kitchen or hallway. For example, our Marrakech tiles are perfect for achieving this trend.
Patterned tiles are also great for achieving the Victorian look, another interiors trend that is becoming hugely popular for Summer 2022. Victorian style patterned tiles feature timeless and ornate designs that are classic and sophisticated, bringing vintage character to your home. Look out for patterned tiles with contrasting colours and graphics to achieve this look. For example, we recommend our Star Blue Pattern or Nouveau Blue tiles.
Metro tiles are an enduring tile that will never go out of fashion. The classic, traditional look has always been glossy white or off-white, but Summer 2022 can be your opportunity to put a modern twist on a timeless classic. For example, use these trending black metro tiles to create a feature wall in your bathroom for an urban, industrial look – or why not go all out and tile the whole wall? Whatever your preferred style and colour, our range of metro tiles will allow you to create your desired statement in your bathroom or kitchen in time for Summer 2022.
This summer, we are set to savour brighter colour as we finally return to normality. Bright and on-trend, yellow is perfect for those who appreciate colour with a touch of sophistication. It will help brighten up a space, especially one with limited natural light. It is a particularly wonderful colour for your bathroom as it creates a lovely warm aura in the summer, like that of long sunny days. As you will also have it in time for the winter months, it will keep your bathroom feeling perfectly cosy and comforting in cooler weather. For this trend, we recommend our Mustard Yellow tiles.
Fresh and airy blue
Tiles inspired by nature are all the rage for Summer 2022, as they can enhance a small space while having a positive effect on your mood. For example, blue is set to breathe new life into many homes this season. It evokes the tranquil vibes of the ocean and sky to help calm the mind, perfect for creating beach vibes and relaxing after a long day. We stock a range of tiles in various shades of blue – get yours in time before summer.
