Tile Trends 2021 – Spring has sprung!


The clocks are changing, and we’ll soon get an extra hour of daylight so now is the time to bring the sunshine inside and get ready for when you can finally invite friends and family around to celebrate the season (fingers crossed).

Unlock those patio doors and welcome the summer with open arms and a lively interior with our stunning collection of tiles with summer vibes.

Splash of Colour for Summer

Our beautiful metallic glazed Grunge tile in Aqua catches the light beautifully and gives the effect of shimmering seas. And if you mix with Grunge Dorato you will truly have that Mediterranean feeling in your kitchen with the pink hue of Dorato capturing the colour of soft sand and sunsets.


But if you would rather have just a splash of colour then you need to start with a plain scheme to create a perfect blank canvas for adding an element of fun. Our Metro series is brilliant for this. The classy shape and colours allow you to go wild with a feature wall. Our Florencia range makes a beautiful feature wall and is perfect if you want to be bang on trend this summer. Our favourite shade this season is Jade.

Another way of making a statement in the rooms of your home is by adding beautiful, patterned tiles to your floor. This tileish trend is making a big come back this year and is particularly popular in large spaces. Designers are using small patterns in big spaces like our Fiorella series which make a dramatic impact quietly.

Bring it Inside

When nature is in full bloom outside, what better way to indulge in all its beauty than by bringing a bit of that natural summer inside?

And you can achieve this by using funky tile designs like our Vernissage Tropical. The deep greens of the foliage are beautiful when mixed with earthy shades like our Pallisandro multi-colour tiles. These textured tiles used on floors are perfect for bringing the outside in and fit with this year’s trend of using tiles typically for the outside, inside.

Keep it Light and Bright

This tip isn’t just for the summer, as you want to optimise the amount of light that pours into your interior throughout the entirety of the year. But it’s probably more important during the sunny season as no-one wants to spend time in a darkly designed and dim space when summer is busy flourishing outside. This can be achieved with fresh tiles in kitchens and bathrooms.

We think Zurbaran Aquamarine is a great choice if you need to embrace the season. If you don’t want to over-colour and overpower the room, limit the coloured tiles to a specific, smaller area of the room.
