Geometric Tiles

Just as the classic metro tile made rectangles retro, the hexagon is set to make six-sided an interior design main stay. There is nothing quite as eye-catching as geometric tiles and the range of design, ornamentation and colour has really taken a step up this year. Shape, trigonometry and pattern combine to make this trend one that is certain to stay in fashion.

Larger than Large-Format Tiles

These huge tiles do two things. One, they make small spaces bigger, and two, they do away with grout lines. This means that they are easy to maintain and absolutely epic in effect. In finishes that mimic high-end marble, larger than large formats are not going out of fashion anytime soon.

The Beloved Metro

The Metro tile just keeps giving. This year, sassy colours and edgy patterns bring the Metro hurtling into 2022 with a bang. Originally conceived in the 1904 for the New York subway stations, this little rectangle will possibly never not be in fashion.
