During its spring show, Coverings, North America’s largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference, shared ceramic tile trends for 2023. The trends were gathered and forecasted by the three leading international tile associations and sponsors of Coverings 2023—Ceramics of Italy, Tile Council of North America and Tile of Spain—to highlight the most popular, on-trend styles of tile from the global marketplace.
Bricks. Offering a handmade feeling, brick tiles can be stacked horizontally or vertically, mixed with different colors and come in a variety of finishes to add visual interest.
Cemented tile. Concrete looks can bring visual harmony to a space and still evoke raw urban energy. The subtle color variation adds texture and flexibility to use in different spaces.
Wood-look tile. The look of these tiles has come a long way, with tiles offering an authentic wood look without the high maintenance of wood.
Emerald tile. From jade to sage to mint, green is having a moment in tiles. Select manufacturers have released show-stopping porcelain slabs featuring saturated colors, giant palms and exotic stones like green onyx and Patagonia green marble.
70s tile. With materials and patterns that include stripes, wavy patterns and wood paneling, 70s tile has made a comeback. Earthy tones and pop art florals are also popular in this category of tiles.
