Talk About Textures
Textures will be the talk of the town this year; from subway tiles to mosaics to waterjets. The key element in all will be tangibility. Creating a dimensionality and fluidity in bathroom tile design will be the ultimate goal in 2021 thanks to the rise of textured tiles.
There’s myriad textures that can be used in your project’s design; 3-dimensional geometric, artistically linear, chic and circular…the list goes on.
Our Jumanji Collection offers a taste of texture with its Jumanji Pearl Textures porcelain tile and Jumanji Black Textures porcelain tile. Both of these have an almost leather-like appearance, mimicking the magnified skin of an elephant trundling through the jungle floors.

As another option, you can dive into design with our Noor Tile from the Majesty Collection. This fascinating tile gives both texture and an element of surprise with its unique appearance. The tile looks like wild roses or rustic wood, depending on your point of view. Get on trend and bring inherent interest into a bathroom design with this tile.
Bold, contemporary and space-defining hexagon tiles will adorn floors, walls and backsplashes in residential as well as commercial spaces. These tiles will have a twist like the swirling blue gray color of the Saint Tropez Dusk hexagon mosaic tile.
The beauty of hexagon tiles is two-fold; they create a dimensional foundation to build up other decor aspects, and they give any bathroom an immediate contemporary feel. Push the limits of design and pair a hexagon white tile against colorful bursts throughout with cabinetry or shower curtains, or create a sense of stateliness and depth with a matte black hexagon tile paired with brass accents.
This trend can be achieved with our Terra Hexagon tiles. With a minimalistic, structural and refined look, the Terra Hexagon porcelain tiles are complete with a modern shape and matte finish to take any design to the next level.

With a gray, silver, amber or blue option each will transition your space, no matter the design style, into a sky high aesthetic fit for the year ahead.

Neutrals have the ability to create a soothing atmosphere and blends well in a myriad of design styles; from modern farmhouse to coastal chic. It’s an extremely versatile look.
