5 Hot or Not Bathroom Tile Trends for 2019

5 Hot or Not Bathroom Tile Trends for 2019

Bathroom tile style options are changing. New styles are on the horizon because of the flexibility that technology is affording manufacturers. Designers love the changes. Here are five trends that are burning up the showrooms.

NOT: Subway tiles vs. HOT: Hexagons, honeycombs, arabesque, diamonds, fish scales, chevron, mosaics, and triangle shaped tiles.

While subway tiles are still very popular, square is old news. Even the variations of subway tiles are running out of steam. It is time to flex the “shape” muscles and get into all of the new ones out there. Bring your bathroom up to date with some of the new tile shapes available and make your bathroom a piece of art.

NOT: Gray, shiny tiles vs. HOT: Black, matte tiles

Black is replacing gray as the color of choice for bathrooms. This change reflects the general interest in the darker colors that are coming into vogue. It works with just about any current style choice: vintage, industrial, modern, mid-century modern, farmhouse, and bohemian. Black works especially well when paired with white.

NOT: Monochromatic vs. HOT: Pops of color

Someone has finally figured out that an all-white bathroom is both boring and hard to keep clean. The latest bath designs are using pops of color to make bathrooms stand out. Customers are asking for more glass, and larger showers – all the way to wet rooms – giving designers the opportunity to turn bathrooms into real statement pieces.

NOT: Neutral vs. HOT: Textures, patterns, unique finishes, interesting material-pairings

Rippled tiles, linen-look tiles, tiles with designs influenced by the Middle East and Mexico, glass tiles, brightly colored tiles, tiles that look like wood, tiles that look like cement, tiles that look like marble, the list of options are endless. Ultra-hot marble tiles are now being cut into patterns – like diamond shaped checker boards – inspired by historical designs. Using neutral tiles in your bathroom is dead. Instead, bathrooms are being turned into high-end spas.

NOT: Safe vs. HOT: Edgy

Technology is coming to the bathroom with music through Bluetooth technology, showers can be set for different members of the family and controlled with a smartphone. With technology, bathroom design is becoming edgier. Tiles are being used as wallpaper, floor to ceiling, as well as all over the room — floor, walls, and ceiling. In the process, silver fixtures are going out, while gold and matte black fixtures are coming into style.

Bathrooms are becoming sleek and modern. Traditional has gone out the window. Inspired and one-of-a-kind is taking its place. Be inspired!
