Earthy Elegance with a Sustainable Spin

This year, kitchen tile designs are channeling Mother Nature with a touch of fiery flair. Think terracotta warmth, sun-kissed browns, and earthy oranges - a trend that brings the outdoors right inside your home. Imagine walls adorned with vibrant hues and organic textures, creating a space that’s bursting with life and earthy decor.

Their vibrant red-orange hue dances on the wall, adding a punch of personality while remaining oh-so-elegant. Just look at how it perfectly complements the crisp white cabinets and fresh green decor details. 

The great thing about this trend is that it goes deeper than just aesthetics. Sustainability is taking center stage in 2024, and that means giving traditional hardwood planks a break. Sure, real hardwood is great, but you need to check out amazing wood-look alternatives. 

Our Japandi Slat Wall tile, disguised as wood with stunning accuracy, offers the same warmth and beauty without harming a single tree. Plus, it’s also ultra-durable, so you can forget about worrying about spills and splashes. This porcelain tile is basically an upgraded version of wood! 

Artistic Bohemian-Inspired Visuals

Carefree and a whole lot of artsy - that’s what this bohemian-inspired kitchen design trend is all about. Loaded with varied textures and materials or splashed with vibrant colors, kitchen spaces are about to become a paradise for lovers of tasteful maximalism with this trend. 

Ditch the design rulebook and break the mold with terrazzo backsplash tiles. These tiles are the black and white confetti cannons of this bohemian kitchen, bringing playful chaos and vibrant personality. 

While maximalism might not be everyone’s cup of tea, you can still embrace the bohemian spirit in your kitchen without going overboard. Opt for muter floral patterns, rustic wood accents, and a touch of biophilia with plants to create a natural, balanced look. Pastel colors can also add a pop of bohemian charm without overwhelming the space.

For an easy way to bring in the boho vibes, consider our Amira Taupe Tile. Its delicate floral motif adds a finely tuned bohemian bliss, aligned with the organic modern bohemian principles. It’s a fresh take on bohemian interiors where soft minimalism replaces the usual explosion of colors, while maintaining the usuals like natural lighting, well-curated decor, and biophillia. 

Unique Textures

Embrace the beauty of imperfection with the look of hand-cut zellige tiles. These tiles go beyond visual impact, offering a sensory experience that’s simply unbeatable. Inspired by traditional Moroccan tiles and designed with a hand-crafted touch, each tile boasts its own distinct flair, adding personality to your kitchen space. 

With zellige tiles, there’s no need for complicated and elaborate design schemes. These tiles can do the talking and sparkling, all on their own. Take a peek at this kitchen bathed in the soft glow of Lake Moon tile on the backsplash. The subtle variations add interest without being overbearing, while the irregular surface gives the kitchen a curated and sophisticated look. And that herringbone pattern? It does a wonderful job of elevating the whole space, making this tile a one-stop shop for instantly creating a kitchen that wows. 

And for those of you who crave more texture and pizzazz, the Luna Arc Celadon tile is calling your name. This option still boasts the hand-crafted look but with an added textural punch. Each tile has a sculpted surface that catches the light and adds depth to your walls, effortlessly. The soft, calming green palette also goes well with the wooden cabinetry, creating a kitchen that’s both cozy and captivating.

So, are you team subtle zellige or team carved drama? Whatever your preference, these handcrafted gems are ready to weave their allure into your culinary have, transforming it into a space that reflects not just light, but, most especially, your individuality. 

Quiet Luxury With Midnight Blues and Blacks

Remember the all-white kitchen reign? We’re sure you do! This year, kitchens are trading their clean-cut charm for a touch of sophisticated drama. Think midnight blues and inky blacks. From walls to floors, accessories to furniture, and even tiles, these deep hues are taking the spotlight, offering a chic upgrade without the bling of golds and silvers. 

Scared that dark colors will swallow the light and make your kitchen feel like a cave? Not at all! 

Dark hues offer a quiet kind of luxury, perfect for creating an upscale feel without resorting to flashy decor. Just look at this wet bar - proof that blacks aren’t a recipe for gloom. The black tiles on the backsplash practically shimmer with their metallic sheen, adding that quiet, high-end feel. The choice of lighter-colored cabinets and countertops balances the space, while the use of strategically placed lighting amps up the luxe factor. 

Hopping on this trend does not mean it has to be an all-or-nothing deal. This kitchen pops with a refreshing mint green on the cabinets while still sporting a black Retro Star mosaic tile on the backsplash, showing you can still experiment with other colors while embracing the dark side. 

If you still feel hesitant about bold blacks, midnight blue might be your perfect compromise. Its elegant depth offers a mysterious touch without the full darkness of black. And even if midnight blue feels too intense, you can still jump on the trend with mosaics featuring swirls or veins in that charismatic hue. 

Consider our Sea Glass Louvre Blue Mosaic Tile. Staying true to its fancy name, this exquisite tile has a moody blue shade, complete with an intricate pattern that whispers “deluxe” in the most sophisticated way. Add this beauty to your kitchen, and you’ll be effortlessly riding the wave of quiet luxury, no full-on darkness required. 

Mix and Match To Perfection

Kitchen design trends 2024 motto is the more eclectic, the merrier! This year, we’re taking a more delightful rebellion against the mundane and uniform. We’re talking about a mishmash of different materials, textures, and colors, turning every kitchen into a masterpiece of individual expression and creativity. 

Imagine the earthy warmth of wooden countertops sitting next to the cool, sleek lines of stainless steel cooktops. Or visualize walking on a vibrant kitchen floor that boldly contrasts yet complements the natural stone on your kitchen walls. 

Don’t be afraid to experiment with your tiles too! Now’s your chance to unleash your inner design diva and mix things up. The “mixed and matched” look can be easily achieved by sticking to one color family and playing with various shapes and patterns within that spectrum. 

A stellar example of this approach is this kitchen backsplash that flawlessly marries Moroccan-inspired solid cross ceramic tiles with its decorative star tiles variety. The solid green tiles lay down a striking canvas, allowing the decorative cross tiles to inject a dose of character, culminating in a design that’s nothing short of spectacular. 

Yet another way to incorporate this trend into your kitchen’s aesthetic is by focusing on texture. Opt for a unified color palette but explore the different tile textures within it. The combination of the handmade-style ceramic subway tiles from our Luna Collection is a perfect example. 

Mixing and matching textures in this tile collection, like using the Luna Arc Blue Tile and the Luna Blue Tile, results in a chic navy backsplash that exemplifies a blend of taste and excellent execution of transition. This design approach not only maximizes the impact of your interior but also demonstrates how varying textures can bring dimension to your space, proving that a well-thought-out kitchen design can make all the difference in your home’s heart.
