Our celebration of National Tile Day isn’t over yet! We’re extending the celebration with another look at a top 2020 tile trend.
In contrast with the warm feel of the refined natural wood looks we highlighted last week, this week brings us an emphasis on urban design and its unique aesthetic traits. Metal- and concrete-look tile options enrich environments with a chic artfulness while opening the door to endless style options.
Don’t take our word for it — let these impressive examples from Instagram do the talking.
Embossed Sheet Metal-Look Tile
This room proves a sheet metal look belongs securely in interior design. Structured, corroded, dented, and dulled, this sheet metal-look tile lends an unmistakably metropolitan feel and looks great on both floors and walls.
Light Concrete-Look Tile
Create an industrial mood with a light concrete-look tile wall (concrete isn’t only for flooring!), exposed bulb pendant lighting, and minimalist decor.
Oxidized & Corrugated Sheet Metal-Look Tile
Another metal look, but a completely different design. This sheet metal-look tile is heavily corrugated to give it a bold 3D quality and oxidized for unique color variation.
Blue Grunge Tile
“Grunge” tiles cover most of this bathroom’s surfaces, but the space is far from gungy. We love how the white mirrors, sinks, and shower door pop against the matte blue tiles.
Pristine Metal-Look Tile
Metal-look tile doesn’t have to be oxidized or distressed — this silver metallic tile is perfectly pristine in a chevron / 3D cube layout.
Dark Concrete-Look Tile
We usually imagine a light-colored design when we think of concrete, but this dark concrete-look tile is an alluring alternative. The large size of the tiles creates an almost seamless look, furthered by the space’s monochromatic color palette.
Tile With Industrial Style & Strength
Create an urban vibe in your home or business with a material that boasts both industrial style and strength. Ceramic tile’s durability and scratch, stain, bacteria, moisture, and fire resistance make it an ideal choice for any application.
