Stone and Tile Trends for 2023


December 14, 2022       Trends

Every Corner Matters

Consider all the surfaces that make up your property. The obvious ones, such as countertops and floors, are still as important as ever. However, the attention is now also shifting to areas that may not have been regarded in the past. For example, your home’s entryways are an opportunity to make a great first impression by applying stone. Approach your laundry room in the same manner as you would your kitchen or bathroom. The laundry room is evolving from a space of mainly function to one deserving of a luxe treatment. Be inspired and get creative! Where there is a surface, there is real estate to install beautiful materials. The past couple years have opened the eyes of many to the significance of a home that pays attention to the details.

Life is Better in Color

Designs of today favor color. Whether you prefer the bold and bright or warm, deep hues, colors add personality to your space. One exciting color that has been returning to the limelight is pink. Its vibrance is matched by its versatility, able to fit both retro and modern themes. Surfaces that inspire the tones of our earth have been growing in popularity as well. Embrace nature by surrounding yourself with shades of green, brown, and beige offered by many of our natural stones.

Celebrate the full spectrum of color with creative executions. Tiered monochrome interiors are one stylish way designers are playing with hues. This practice sees varying shades of one color applied to create a tranquil yet invigorating atmosphere. It brings about a cohesive look with one main color as the foundation.

Expand Your Tile Horizons

The world of tile presents countless possibilities. 2023 will see the exploration of the unconventional and dramatic. Among them, Terrazzo continues to occupy the floors and walls of many stylish spaces. Not only are these tiles resilient, but they produce an artistic effect. This year, we are seeing the rising popularity of Terrazzo deco as well. Experience the allure of Terrazzo tiles with Parade.

Anthracite is another material that has been gaining attention in recent times. Its robust characteristics, both in natural and porcelain form, make them perfect for sophisticated designs. Implementing paint color elevates its visuals even further. Our Eco-Stone tile collection carries a color that transmits the aesthetic of anthracite.

When considering the shapes and sizes of your tile, approach with an open mind. Large format tiles are preferred by many as they make settings look more spacious. The minimal grout lines achieved with larger tiles also means a more consistent look with easier cleaning. Designers are laying on more charm in their spaces as well with decorative patterns, such as the sleek hexagons of Element . Many stones and other materials are available in these chic patterns, giving you near endless options.

As previously discussed, the usage of color is blooming, and tile is not an exception. Rich tones and deep blues and greens, like the ones seen in our Switch collection, can be observed in many tile designs of today. Neutral yellows are also making an appearance. This color that evokes joy and hope could not have come at a better time.

An Emphasis on Wellness

Every one of these trends aims to create a home in which an air of blissful tranquility flows throughout. We are just now departing a period that was nothing short of turbulent. We have learned that our home should not be taken for granted, but be a place where we can relax, feel safe, and call our own. From the kitchen to the patio and everything in between, every space, and every surface, should harmonize to provide a restful environment.
