If bathroom tile trends are making one thing clear for 2022, it’s that plain white subway blocks just aren’t cutting it anymore. Having long been the default for modern renovations, this year interior designers are mixing it up, ditching the plain and ordinary for bathroom tiles that burst with personality.
Retro-inspired tiles installed in a grid pattern are trending right now because they feel nostalgic and classic but not overly traditional. Opting for a contrasting grout makes the square tiles pop, highlighting their graphic quality in a way that recalls graph paper.
PATTERENED TILES WITH PATTERENED PAPER
Classic bathrooms were noted for their restraint, with black-and-white, hyper-clean tiles designed for cleanliness and peace of mind. But new applications embrace the movement of maximalism in interior design with bold bathrooms that have a mind of their own.
Drenched in color, designers aren’t afraid to go all-in with monochrome palettes, often picking vivid tiles that cover bathrooms from corner to corner. The result is not a flat color, but a constellation of squares that catch light in different ways.
