Top Tile Trends for 2020

Posted by Direct Tile Warehouse | Monday, November 11, 2019

Another new year is about to roll around, so we’ve lovingly compiled our top tile trends for 2020. If you’re looking for tile suggestions for updating your home over the next few months, then our futuristic forecasting may be just the thing to keep you bang on trend with the latest interior design styles.

From warm colours to fancy florals, wonderful wood effect to majestic marble, here are our ceramic calculations and porcelain predictions for the latest tile styles for 2020.

Tile Colour Trends for 2020


Sage green tiles

Green tiles are very versatile, as you can go from calming and relaxing to vibrant and invigorating depending on the shade. We predict that soft sage green will be big news in 2020, taking the lead from Dulux Colour of the Year Tranquil Dawn.

Our Avila green wall tiles are perfect for creating a touch of clean, calm living, whether you use them in a country-style kitchen or spa-inspired bathroom.

Greige tiles

Grey is always in fashion as it’s so adaptable, but if you want a softer feel than some of the blue-greys out there, why not mix in a hint of brown and go with greige? It’s such a fabulous neutral colour to add some warmth and will complement pretty much any other colour.

We love these Concret grey classic floor tiles that you can use on their own or paired with our Rivieras Pearl tiles to create a feature.

Monochrome tiles

We are big fans of monochrome here at Direct Tile Warehouse! Sophisticated and stylish, the combination of black and white works well in contemporary or classic rooms. Mono gives you the option to add in an accent colour with ease too.

Our Degas Black and White Tiles will be just as popular in 2020 thanks to their timeless design and bold look.

Tiling Trends for 2020


Statement tiling  

If you want a real statement look and you’re feeling daring, break away from symmetry and uniform lines for an irregular look with the same tile in different colours.

We adore how striking this room looks by getting creative with our Opal Hexagon tiles to produce a floor that’s worthy of an art gallery.

Herringbone tiling

Dare to go diagonal? Heat things up with herringbone! This classic method of tiling has branched away from parquet floors and onto walls as an easy way to use a plain tile but add more interest. A criss-cross pattern also looks stunning with decorative tiles.

A herringbone design with black tiles such as our Fabulous Mini Bevelled metro tiles adds glamorous drama and would look amazing in a bathroom with a lighter floor.

Wood effect tiles 

Wood effect will be making its mark in 2020. Save on the cost and maintenance of expensive timber with wood effect floor tiles to create a timeless design that will look fantastic in any room of the house. Think shabby chic teak, flashy ash or peachy beech!

Our Life grey wood effect tiles can be used on walls and floors, and their R10 anti-slip finish makes them delightful yet durable.

Tile Designs for 2020


Marble tiles

Marble effect tiles are by far our bestselling flooring, quite simply due to the high-end look they produce. There’s nothing more elegant and opulent than a marble-effect floor, and the choice of vein colour and density helps you coordinate accordingly.

Our Crash White Marble Effect floor tiles have just come into stock and are already making waves amongst our customers! If you want a softer vein, try our Calacatta range.

Split face tiles

Split face tiles are making a strong comeback for 2020. They are the perfect choice for achieving a fantastic feature wall and due to their hardwearing nature, they can also be used as external tiles.

Available in black, grey, oyster and white, our Ordino Oyster split face tiles are a popular wall tile choice with our customers, especially as a feature wall or splashback.

Victorian patterns

Victorian tiles always add an air of sophistication as well as adding some interest to any room. Available in a wide range of colours and designs, they work well in both contemporary and traditional homes.

We are a little bit obsessed with these Windsor patterned tiles. The soft colours and delicate design are ideal for bathrooms of all shapes and sizes to pair with pastel accessories.
