A Tile Trends Discussion

Sponsored and Hosted by Crossville Tile.

Convergence by Crossville - kitchen

Tile, one of the most beloved surfaces across the centuries, is having a heyday! Now more than ever, people are clamoring for tile’s undeniable style—and its performance, as well. As we see interior design trends become more bold and a bit audacious, there’s plenty of tile to fall in line. From looks that harken to art deco’s roots to options that speak to the grand scale and deep colors of the old Dutch masters, today’s tile products are running the gamut of aesthetics, form, and function. Tile is increasingly specified in commercial and residential spaces, and thanks to advancements in the material, it’s being used in more plentiful and unique applications.
