Ceramic tiles 2024 – top trends
An analysis of current trends allows us to highlight several trends in the color and design of tiles. But the first thing designers recommend paying attention to when choosing products is the competent use of all available space. For example, slabs of rich colors with a glossy finish reflect furniture and decor – this allows you to visually increase the area of \u200b\u200bthe room. The open spaces and lightness of the interior also help to add geometric patterns.
Modern trends require naturalness and ergonomics, noble restraint and the use of laconic color combinations.
Now there is a trend in tiles for naturalness, natural tones, as well as additional volume due to geometry.
Classics and natural colors are always in fashion, but sometimes it is recommended to add bright accents to the decor. They help to enliven the space and make it cozier. For example, a classic beige coating will noticeably improve a small panel with floral motifs, golden or silver splashes. Paints do not have to be flashy and overly active, but they should play an accent role.
Modern bathroom tiles are the basis of decoration. Its diversity makes it possible to independently choose the color, size, pattern, dominant accents that are suitable for certain rooms. When choosing them, you should focus not only on trends, but also take into account existing conditions and your own wishes.
One of the main tile trends 2024 is the embodiment of all kinds of natural textures and natural colors. This direction includes wood and plant motifs.
Natural wood look porcelain stoneware is well suited for places where, due to high humidity, it is not possible to install real wood flooring. In bathrooms and kitchens, wood will begin to change its look and characteristics, while ceramic will remain intact and last for about 20 years. If you are close to this finish, take a look at the Aspenwood collections from the Russian brand Vitra, Aviona from the Polish manufacturer Cerrad and other items in our catalog.
Wood effect porcelain stoneware is actively used for both floors and walls. Its surface has a relief coating, which outwardly is almost indistinguishable from real wood. Even to the touch, the difference is almost imperceptible. Due to the uneven texture, the slip coefficient of the tiles is minimal, and its installation is possible even in the wettest rooms: bathrooms, kitchens. In the rest of the rooms, wooden flooring will create an atmosphere of home warmth and comfort.
Facing with such porcelain stoneware can be carried out either alone or in combination with other coatings. For example, with canvases imitating natural stone.
Floristry on ceramic tiles allows you to create an elegant and light design. This design allows you to add eco-style details to minimalist interiors, bringing brightness and interesting accents to them.
Multi-colored flowers look especially advantageous on a monochrome background. Worthy examples are the Albi series (manufactured by Fanal), Botanica and Braga (manufactured by Ceramika Konskie).
Among the decor trends in 2024 are Mediterranean motifs, geometry and relief images. The first one usually embodies majolica, which combines conciseness and romance of warm European countries. Geometric patterns can be made in contrasting colors and are great for boho style, as well as minimalist canvases for classics or modern trends. Relief decor allows you to make the walls more expressive, especially in combination with smooth textures.
Despite the difficulties of installation in comparison with tiles of standard sizes, small-format models do not lose their popularity. If you do not want to spend a lot of time laying, then you can choose ceramics of a standard size with a pattern in the form of smaller tiles. Such, for example, are available from the Spanish manufacturers Click and Emigres.
The light colors of the plates are preferred: white, beige, cream are suitable. They are perfectly complemented by golden or silver borders with a characteristic sheen.
Tile “under the wallpaper”
Wallpaper is not used in bathrooms and other wet rooms, so wallpaper-like tiles are considered a great alternative. The material has become popular due to the huge variety of shades and textures.
Marble -look finishes that feature unique patterns and sophisticated hues are back at the peak of popularity in 2024. In addition to wall and floor cladding, tiles are suitable for finishing a screen under a font or a washbasin in a bathroom. Designers also offer such a solution as pastel-colored marble panels on the ceiling. To implement these ideas, you can choose the Calacatta collection from the Realistik and Cerrad brands, the Orinoco series from the Argenta brand, etc.
The stylish texture of natural wood is a classic design that never goes out of style. High-quality imitation perfectly replaces a short-lived wood coating and is combined with any ornaments. The finish also looks beautiful in combination with plain ceramics.
Despite the predominance of neutral colors in modern design, expressive and vibrant Moroccan motifs are in great demand.
This style becomes the accent of the room, without overloading even a small area. The rich color and oriental motifs of the tiles attract creative people who want to decorate their home in an original way.
Thanks to the improvement of techniques and equipment, new designs appear regularly. Among them is 3D effect ceramic tiles, which have conquered the market in recent years. So far, few manufacturers are ready to offer this format, but large brands are already selling products with a three-dimensional texture. These are Ceramika Konskie, Pamesa, Vitra.
A 3D veneer is created by applying multiple layers. Such a design may have an exact pattern or be an abstraction. The three-dimensional image is suitable for finishing the floor and ceiling, making them more dynamic and modern.
In addition, thanks to the glossy or matte top layer, it is possible to create an optical illusion. It helps to visually enlarge the room of any area.
Mosaic panels in 2024 are among the leaders in the ranking of finishes for various rooms. Small parts are difficult to install, so manufacturers offer special stamps with an original design. They are produced in various shades that can play in contrast with a plain wall. Volume is added by a glass mosaic with illumination.
Imitation of brickwork is relevant for retro style, which is in demand in modern houses and apartments. The classic design is offered by the Keramo Rosso brand in the Palermo collection, while the trendy white brickwork cladding can be found in the Spanish manufacturer Emigres ( Microcemento series ).
Structural finishing can be called one of the most spectacular and dynamic options for the interior. Large details are often used in fragments, in combination with a smooth background.
The location of the relief vertically will visually make the ceilings higher, and when laid horizontally, expand the space. Facing looks stylish with the help of the Afternoon collection from the Polish manufacturer Ceramika Paradyz, Aranza brand Emigres.
Snow-white embossed tiles, which create a feeling of purity and freedom, are considered relevant in 2024 in design. There are collections in white, for example, from the Keraben brand, Ceramika Konskie. Other natural shades, stylization of natural materials (wood, stone) also remain trendy.
The composition of the material is cement with the addition of small fragments of marble, dolomite, granite and glass. After grinding them, a surface with a beautiful uneven texture is obtained.
In the ranking of types of tiles for bathrooms and other rooms, the Italian terrazzo coating is in the first position.
In most cases, with the help of tiles, an accent zone is distinguished. For example, the area around the sink or tub. Combinations with models decorated with stone chips look good. Laying ceramic tile ornaments is another interesting way to finish. Designers are even able to lay out entire panels with an original pattern.
Original ceramic tiles with a metallic surface are the trend of 2024. This is especially true for gold, silver and copper shades.
The peculiarity of finishing in this way is that it is not recommended to place ceramic sheets on all planes. A room completely lined with metal will quickly get bored, over time it will put pressure on the eyes. Therefore, metallized plates should be placed fragmentarily. Their combinations with a neutral background and bright accessories look especially good.
An innovation in ceramic tiles with this design is a three-dimensional pattern on a shiny cladding. This solution looks dynamic and copes well with the visual increase in space.
Nickel and chrome in plumbing (in bathrooms and kitchens), as well as decor, can be called classics. At the same time, in recent years, many apartment owners have begun to prefer brass and golden hues to them. They pair well with the gold borders and decors of the tile itself, creating a truly royal setting. This can be called one of the characteristic features of the classical style.
Tiles with a colorful pattern are just gaining momentum, struggling with the minimalism and conciseness of modern ceramic tile models. But the warmth that she carries in herself captivates many. Therefore, it can often be found in floor and wall cladding, as well as accent inserts in more neutral interiors. In the patchwork style, brands such as Monopole and Pamesa successfully work. The unique prints they offer are well suited for decorating private homes as well as decorating public spaces.
The novelty of 2024 is considered to be small-format tiles in rich shades of orange, yellow, terracotta and other tones that set you up for a pleasant stay.
In 2024, designers are in no hurry to abandon the marine theme, but they advise making it more calm. For example, avoid accent images of marine animals, ships and other pictures.
Of the colors, the color of the sea wave is especially relevant, as well as turquoise. This palette will be a good background for the walls. Small details and accessories are selected to match. It is good if they resemble shells, pearls and other marine paraphernalia in their shape.
The influence of colors on the perception of the interior is difficult to overestimate. They not only set the atmosphere and style, but also form a certain mood, affect the human condition.
Ceramic design has long been dominated by a discreet, minimalist palette. The classics are not going anywhere, but gradually designers have become bolder when working with shades and now offer many more options. Now there is a gradual transition from universal gray and beige tones to more saturated and active ones.
Green, orange, red, blue and other colors can be found in many modern brands. For example, bright collections are offered by Mainzu, Ceramika Konskie, Monopole, Pamesa and other foreign brands.
The trend for saturated colors returns from 2024 to the 80s, when bright colors were a must-have addition to a space. In addition to playing the role of the base, rich colors become the basis of various decor. Here the play on contrast and chromatic diversity are connected. Plain coatings with a matte and glossy surface, products with an active geometric pattern, original majolica, soft watercolor transitions and active color combinations – this is not a complete list of possible variations.
Bright ceramics is a great opportunity to add variety to a too regular and boring design, as well as to place accents. It can be used as the main finishing material when decorating a monochrome design or as an addition, decorating with it a part of a wall, a niche or a kitchen apron.
At the same time, the style of the room can be anything: from unusual pop art or ethnic trends to restrained modern or hi-tech. Juicy colors in a competent proportion will not only not spoil the interior, but also set the mood for the room.
Speaking of popular designs in 2024, it must be said that the main tone is still set by minimalistic and calm ceramic coatings. Light gamma, high-quality imitation of natural materials ( marble, granite, onyx and wood ) are the trends that designers have been celebrating for years. The trend towards naturalness and environmental friendliness is also supported by floral motifs, which only slightly transform over time.
Among the novelties of the 2024 season, it is worth noting the spread of metallic surfaces, which are especially relevant for modern styles. Golden shades will also find their place in apartments and houses this year. This trend can be clearly seen in the classic style.
What is in trend is worth considering. But when choosing ceramic tiles for finishing your apartment, you do not need to mindlessly chase after them. You should focus primarily on the quality of materials and practicality, as well as the relevance of ceramics in the space of your home.
