5 Must-Know Summer 2021 Tile Trends

5 Must-Know Summer 2021 Tile Trends

Summer is heating up and so are these tile trends! Tiles are one of the few design materials that have the ability to completely transform a space. From terrazzo to hexagon mosaics and outdoor pavers – there is a tile for any design vision. As we get ready to bring on the warmer months, let’s take a look at some of the hottest trends this season.


Terrazzo Tile


Terrazzo is a modern take on the classic traditional terrazzo that became popular in the 60s and 70s. This material consists of chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass or other materials that give it its own unique appearance. Classic terrazzo floors can be found in hotels, shopping malls, and public spaces but new modern looks are available as designers are rediscovering the look of these fun, playful tiles.


The Frammenti terrazzo tile collection is available now – consisting of three 8” x 8” tiles – Nero Macro, Bianco Macro and Azzurro Macro.

Bright Colors


Gone are the dull yellows and beige tones of winter. The trend for this year will be “be your own shade” with brighter colors and patterns. The trendy colors for this season include deep blues and bright greens. In the kitchen, tilework will take center stage in bold grays, blue, and multicolored terrazzo looks.

Whether you want to keep it soft and natural or contemporary and contemporary, there’s a stone for everyone with this trend!

Hexagon Mosaics


Whether you prefer hexagonal tiling in the kitchen or in the bathroom, the trend for summer 2021 and beyond is our favorite hexagon tile. The alluring spherical form can be used in combination with other shapes to create striking styles. A classic hexagon tile will coordinate perfectly with a freestanding bathtub or a contemporary frameless shower, all of which give off a light and airy vibe.

So while there is still plenty of time for you to improve upon your current tile plan, now is the time to start thinking about what pieces will best complement your existing style. Although there are endless possibilities when it comes to tiles, there are a few things you should remember before buying.

The end goal is to create a unique look, not only for your home, but for your eyes, as well. So to make your tiles unique you need to incorporate a little bit of something unique. By integrating a design feature that’s already available on the market, you create something that is distinctive from the rest of the crowd.
