It’s the last week of our National Tile Day celebration. That means we have just one week until Coverings 2022! Have we saved the best for last?
Last, but not least, we’re highlighting warm stone looks.
Stone looks are a great way to add natural allure and texture to a space. And with the general warming up of color palettes over the past few years, it’s no surprise that stone looks are also heating up in color.
Let’s take a look at some examples of this 2022 trend.
(Almost) Back-to-Basics Beige Tile
This bedroom tile almost had us fooled into thinking it was straightforward beige, but then we noticed the ever-so-slight veining. The subtle style contributes to the bathroom’s warm and fresh “washed in sunlight” look.
Caramel Swirl Stone-Look Tile
The caramel veining on this floor is exactly what comes to mind when we think of warm stone-look ceramic tile. Imagine getting lost in this soothing design while soaking in the tub.

Warm Stone-Look Mosaic Tile
Stone looks lend themselves to tile mosaics, as well. This wall tile combines a warm, earthy tone with a playful diamond design that creates a 3D illusion. If you ask us, this combo strikes the perfect balance: both down-to-earth and off-the-wall!

Warm Concrete Looks
Concrete-look tile may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of stone looks, but they are quite popular these days, especially for industrial projects such as a warehouse-turned-residence, or a factory being reimagined into a boutique hotel. Warmer concrete looks — beige and espresso, for instance — help avoid the cold, stark feeling you might get with large expanses of cool-toned grays.

Warm Slate-Look Tile
Who doesn’t love the look of slate? This slate-look tile wall balances warm red, orange, and yellow tones with cooler grays and blues. Equally importantly, its organic texture enriches the space.
Warm Gray Stone-Look Tile
Grays can have either cool undertones (such as blue) or warm undertones (such as yellow and brown). Warm grays, as with this floor-to-ceiling tile, are often called “greige” — a combination of “gray” and “beige.”
