2022 Tile Trends Spotting

18 Jan 2022

In order to keep our catalogue of products current and popular, it is important for us to keep up to date with what clients are looking for. In this blog we are going to explain our predictions for the market in 2022, if any of the available trends catch your eye then make sure you take note and give us a call to discuss any potential options for your projects.

Creative Flooring
For a number of years feature walls have been a popular choice with people looking to create a vocal point within a space. But with the development of various geometric tiles such as hexagons, we have seen an increased popularity in people using the floor space within their designs to create the same effect as a feature wall.  Hexagons, Chevrons and Herringbones can offer an impactful way to liven up a space and create an eye-catching and strong visual effect with a neutral colour pallet to keep the simplistic elegance of marble.

 

Onyx
Onyx is quickly becoming a popular stone, with strong colour characteristics making it attractive for projects looking for a product where the appearance aids in creating additional aesthetic value to an environment. Onyx is steadily making its way into some of the most fashionable and exclusive areas with its unique edge, as long as it is maintained well Onyx can stay looking beautifully new for many years. With the style of Onyx looking to be very popular in 2022, not only do we have formats of the real stone available to order, but we also have a marble effect porcelain option available.

Statement Stone
This year we envision people to be more adventurous with their tile choices, powerful veins and eccentric patterns are what people are looking for to make their interior spaces stand out from the crowd. Marble has always been a popular on trend product and we envision it will be for many more years, but with more variations becoming available people are now looking for the perfect statement marble to make their designs stand out from the crowd. Our Lilac marble is the perfect product for this and is held as a stock item in the UK. From the Carrara family, the lilac marble holds the beauty of the timeless classic but with an additional bold unique edge. We also have a number of different unique and exclusive statement marble tiles available in bespoke production, these can all be viewed via the Ionic Stone global website, but below is one of my favourites, the invisible blue!

Textured Tiles
We already saw an increased popularity in our vast range of textured splitface tiles in 2021 and we expect that popularity to steadily increase into 2022. This is not a shock as textured tiles really do add a new dimension to an area and create a fantastic 3D effect making it the perfect feature wall in a variety of different settings. We have a wide range of splitface tiles available but one of our most popular is the Glacier Grey Riven Cladding, this tile looks fantastic under spotlights as the reflection from the lights really makes the natural sparkle embedded in the tile stand out. I think one of the things that make textured tiles so popular is that they look fantastic in almost every setting you can think of, I’ve seen them used in conservatories, bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms and hallways and every time it has really made a beautiful addition to the space.
