Black tile floors are 'hot,' and so are hues at the other end of the color spectrum like beige and light grey. Traditional white is always popular, but other options are like a marble-look white or a white-washed wood design. For a retro look, consider black and white checkerboard tiles. These neutral colors are most often paired with a matte finish to create a refined look.

Large and small

Large-format tiles, which are larger than the average 12-inch by 12-inch tile, are fashionable. They make the room feel bigger. In contrast, mosaic tiles are small tiles often attached to a mesh sheet for easy installation. The tiles, which measure 2 inches or smaller in the largest dimension, are available in various materials, including glass and ceramic.

Hardwood look

While it's not a good idea to put hardwood flooring in bathrooms, mudrooms, and basements, trendy wood look porcelain tile can be installed in these moisture-prone areas. An image of various wood species is printed on tiles with inkjet technology. The surface can even be textured to mimic wood grains. Man-made luxury vinyl tile is an alternative to clay-based porcelain tile.
