Inspired by National Tile Day, we’re highlighting eight eagerly anticipated tile trends of 2020!
Starting off our series is the unique look of precious stone- and gemstone-look tiles. Precious stone looks bring the beauty of nature to your home in the glamorous way only nature can create.
This tile style is expected to take off in 2020, but we’re already seeing striking examples of precious stone-look tile on Instagram. Here are just a few of our favorites so far.
Precious Stone-Look Tile
This video introduces you to a variety of the designs possible with precious stone-look tile. Fall in love with gauged porcelain tile panels/slabs with fragments of different marbles, white marble with large gray veining, orange and gray onyx, and a unique natural stone look traced with different shades of blue — and then struggle to decide which you like best.

Rare Blue Granite-Look Tile
This blue granite-look tile is one-of-a-kind, and we mean it — it was custom-designed specifically for this bathroom. With a bathroom as celestially beautiful as this, any other decorations would be a distraction.
Blue Agate-Look Tile
Some people dream of walking down the red carpet; we dream of walking down this blue agate-look tile hallway. Click through to the next photo to see the same look in black and brown shades.
Exotic Marble-Look Tile
This exotic marble-look tile is inspired by a refined Asian marble that includes black, white, gray, and green feldspars. A high polish finishes off the look and gives depth to the visually intricate design.
