Tile is typically an overlooked material by homeowners when choosing to remodel. There’s a stigma surrounding it, with lots of people assuming it’s more expensive than it is. Builders also often shy away from using tile in homes due to the recent labor shortage. Tile adds fine detail to your home that other materials just can’t offer, and here we’ll discuss what trends are the hottest for making your home unique in 2023.
Bookmatch tile is the newest way to make a statement and create visual interest in your home. This tile installation involves mirroring the pattern so that it looks like one continuous slab. This completely changes the game for tiling your home, as you now have the option to make it look like you have a one-of-a-kind slab of gorgeous stone to call your own. Book matching tile is great for those with a large area between cabinets that regular backsplash wouldn’t do justice. It can also be a statement piece in your bathroom or the primary material for a fireplace. Book matching will make its destination look like a work of art, so use with the intention of dropping jaws.
24×48 tile is a popular choice because it’s a good size for flooring and walls. It’s also a great option for large rooms, as it covers more space than traditional tile and gives less breaks in the pattern with fewer grout lines. Fewer grout lines also make the idea of cleaning less daunting. 24×48 comes in a polished and matte variety with countless looks, from large, gorgeous veins running throughout, to cloudy neutral colors that offer more subtlety. There are also stone and metal look designs, meaning you have styles to match if you want these tiles in a living room or basement.
Tiling on fireplace
Porcelain is a great material for the fireplace, something we at InDesign and homeowners all over Alpharetta are discovering more every day in 2023. It comes in a wide range of designs and colors, so you can easily find one that matches your home decor. If you’re looking for something with less texture and a look that always looks clean and dazzling, Italian porcelain is an excellent option–but if you want something that puts your fireplace into a class by itself, go for a mosaic tile. Having a pattern, you’d only see as a backsplash anywhere else on your fireplace is sure to be a showstopper.
Mosaic accent tile in bathroom
Mosaic accent tile is a long-time trend to add color and texture to a bathroom. It also draws attention, which means you can use it anywhere you want eyes on your space. What part of your bathroom do your eyes go first? Is it the large shower with very uniform subway, begging for some flair? You can add mosaic tile down the middle of your wall or on the floor of your shower. New vanity, but still don’t think it’s the center of attention? Put a mosaic backsplash behind your mirror with the same width as your vanity and going all the way up to ceiling. Have an elegant tub and want to capitalize its presence even more? Put an accent wall of your favorite tile that complements the tub directly behind it, so that you and anyone else that walks into your bathroom see its glory on full display.
Mosaic tile flooring
Mosaic tile flooring is a new and eccentric way to add interest and color to a bathroom or kitchen. Another popular trend in flooring is to have a colorful glass or other mosaic flooring in your entrance foyer to give appeal right when you walk in the door. Many creative innovators have tried this with massive success, making a foyer you’d see out of a Frank Lloyd Wright magazine. Mosaic tiles come in many colors and styles, so there will be options for any style your kitchen or foyer employs. Choosing a mosaic porcelain tile for your kitchen or bathroom gives a very unique sense of character to the room and will shoot down any “cookie cutter” thoughts you may have about your floorplan.
