The Chevron Floor Craze
Named for its resemblance to the skeleton of the herring fish, the chevron pattern trend that emerged in recent years is still going strong. With the craze for vintage geometric patterns at full tilt in residential and commercial designs, trend forecasts say we can expect to see more of this sophisticated pattern into 2022 and beyond! An innovative flooring solution for those who want their design to stand out, chevron tiles add a new dimension to an otherwise flat room and elevate any space from ground up - perfect to fit virtually any space from formal living rooms and modern hallways to contemporary kitchen or bathroom spaces alike.
Combining the exciting dynamic of chevron pattern with the authenticity of white washed wood texture on the floors, our Spiga Olson Blanco Wood-Look Chevron Porcelain Tile never fails to make a statement on its own!
Wondering if installing chevron floor tiles is a time-consuming process? Not with our wood-look chevron porcelain tiles! These distinctive porcelain tiles make the installation process a breeze with the pattern already embedded in the large format flooring tiles, giving us another reason to fall back in love with this ever-classic pattern. The clean lines of the zigzag motif also bring out the nature-inspired wood grain patterns on tile - taking traditional hardwood flooring look to a new contemporary level! Give your living rooms, kitchens and entryways the high-end feel of European parquet flooring with all the benefits of long-wearing porcelain tile that is resistant to scratching, mildew, or moisture!

Chevron mosaic tiles also support fluidity on the floors and help add length due to their arrow-like designs. Directing the eye from one end to the other, eye-catching V-shapes flow beautifully across the surface of the floors - perfect to trick the eyes in a small bathroom, shower, mudroom, or kitchen! And the best part? Grout lines create extra traction that you won’t have to worry about your floors getting slippery when wet!
Touch-Worthy Textured Floors
The 2022 flooring design forecasts show that satin and glossy finishes are a thing of the past. We’re seeing matte and low sheen floor tiles popping on Pinterest boards and taking the spotlight. The current trend is for floor tiles with imperfect finishes, tumbled edges and matte surfaces that result in depth and definition to the tile’s surface, creating that aged appeal that satisfies our desires for an authentic home.
Plaza Wooden Beige Marble Mosaic Tile floors provide this neutral bathroom with a level of interest thanks to its handcrafted appearance and tumbled edges that paint or wallpaper simply cannot achieve!
From timeless hexagons to contemporary leaf patterns, textured mosaic tile floors come with added advantages such as hiding dust, imperfections, and dirt. Imperfect floor surfaces are perfect for homes with kids and pets, or any high traffic areas where you’d like to hide wear and tear. What’s more, it’s one of our favorite ways to make wet floors become less slippery without sacrificing style!
This textured brings a personalized aesthetic to any floor area through subtle texture, and adds visual interest to the room without veering from a neutral color palette.
If your color palette consists of very similar shades, textured floor tiles can be the piece of the puzzle that will add dimension to your room. Prevent your shower floors from being slippery using textured basketweave tiles, add extra dimension to your mudroom with tumbled-finished travertine tiles, or elongate your bathroom floors with linear textured porcelain tiles while dressing up your room with a multidimensional finish for excitement!
Reclaimed Wood-Look Flooring
Esagona Intarcio Silver Wood Look Porcelain Tile brings a beautiful homey charm to your floors with a look that’s adaptable, versatile, and sure to please!
Speaking of authenticity, one other trend making a big splash in the design world are reclaimed distressed wood-look floors to satisfy our desire for immediate warmth and character. Evoking cozy charm and country interiors, distressed wood-look porcelain tiles add individuality, and transform any ordinary room into a unique space with lived-in quality. From vintage whitewashed charm to antique wood-look finishes, these tiles are perfect to add a reclaimed wood appeal to your floors without worrying about wear, scratches, or damage from water, furniture, pets, or kids!
Our natural wood look King Nut porcelain tile effortlessly mimics gorgeous hardwood looks and makes a lovely counterpoint for the butcher block countertops that country style kitchens favor!
Want to add the allure of natural wood to your farmhouse kitchen or bathroom with a water-resistant floor tile? Whether it’s for the home, high traffic commercial area, patio, steam room or even shower, reclaimed wood-look tiles are ideal for homes in humid climates where natural wood can warp or deteriorate. Decorated with Mid-Century tulip chairs in the kitchen, or paired with a cowhide area rug in the living room, these tiles are exactly the flooring you’d want for a versatile, beautiful, and truly authentic aesthetic!
Two Toned - or More - Floors!
For those that may not want to commit to a solid, uniform color for their entire floor, two tone or checker floor tiles are on the design radar in 2022 and beyond. Two-toned floor tiles break up the monotony of a room and give a fun, lived-in yet classy look. With wide selections of two-tones and patterns to choose from, you’ll have plenty to consider for the entryways, kitchens, living rooms and more!

From the timeworn black and white tiles at the Palace of Versailles to the modern harlequin style at the Shinola Hotel in Detroit, classic checkerboard floor style has been a beloved look for centuries. Marble checkerboard tiles can empower any floor design - such as the case in this trendy bathroom remodel hy House of Jade that uses the elegant combination of Thassos marble field tiles with Carrara marble squares. This gray and white floor is a fresh take on a stylish classic. Bound to make an impression, trending checkerboard floors can give any space an appearance that looks completely custom - perfect to impress guests in the hallway, bathroom or commercial lobby space.
