floor tile trends

Coverings, North America’s largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference, has unveiled the top tile trends for 2024. These tile trends offer a sneak peek of the product exhibits being planned for this year’s show, happening on 22-25 April 2024 at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta.  

Forecasters 

This year’s lineup of in-vogue tile trends was identified by Coverings’ three leading sponsors and international tile associations – Ceramics of Italy/Confindustria Ceramica, the Ceramic Tile Manufacturers Association of Spain (ASCER)/Tile of Spain and the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) – to showcase the most in-demand and fashionable tile designs from the global tile market.  

Alena Capra, owner of Alena Capra Designs, certified master kitchen and bath designer and Coverings spokesperson, collaborated with the tile associations to forecast the 2024 tile trends. “The Coverings 2024 tile trends deliver a totally fresh perspective on ceramic tiles’ versatility and beauty, providing architects, designers and other tile professionals with a groundbreaking reimagination of tiles’ unified functional and aesthetic possibilities,” said Capra.

Set in Stone 

These looks draw inspiration from the beauty of the earth’s ancient geological past. Masterpieces of nature, such as limestone, bluestone and slate, are represented with precision and include characteristics such as veining, coal lines and visible fossils. The visual richness of their textures, nuances and details is maintained and paired with the practicality of ceramic.

Contempo Concrete 

To complement the raw beauty of contemporary architecture, designers are giving fresh interpretations of modern cement in porcelain format. Exquisitely coloured and perfectly sized aggregates give these designs a handcrafted concrete look and feel. Beautifully brutalist and understatedly elegant, these creative concrete looks embody modernity, sophistication and the bustling tapestry of urban living. 

Porcelain Panels Panache 

The world is witnessing and embracing the availability of production-ready versions of full-body porcelain panels. This achievement signifies a momentous milestone as it fulfils a longstanding request from fabricators and specifiers since the mainstream adoption and installation of large-format tiles. These full-body pieces offer the remarkable qualities of heat, stain and scratch resistance, while being sustainable and free from toxic chemicals.  

Manufacturers are turning up the volume on this trend with the look, style and allure of natural stone, spanning many collections mimicking the world’s rarest marble and showcasing evocative amalgamations with bright colours and luminous veins. Distinguishing them from vying materials is their capacity to be worked with, using traditional fabrication techniques, making them a cost-effective and versatile choice for exceptional architecture and design applications.

Organic Grandeur 

Innovative glazing technology paired with inspiration from rare natural materials give surfaces so stunning, you will lose your gaze in them. Enhancing effects of light and reflectivity are reproduced in luminous finishes, giving the beauty and depth of marble with the durability of porcelain in colour ranges wider than these of natural stone. 

Architectonic 

With tile being a historically integral part of buildings, it is no surprise that architecture is a muse for tile manufacturers. Ceramic brands are partnering with industry designer heavyweights to put their own creative stamps on the classic material, while others are inspired by historic buildings and architectural details, from stained glass to Byzantine cut mosaics.

The Third Dimension 

Ceramic tile companies are looking at the third dimension as the next frontier of design. New collections feature a plethora of 3D tiles from fluted and protruding surfaces to reliefs with explosive patterns. As manufacturers work towards producing tiles that look and feel like natural stone, marble prints are now paired with low-relief veining for an incredibly realistic appearance. 

 

Stone, minerals and glamour all make their appearance as floor tile trends for 2024, as presented by Coverings, North America’s largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference.
