If you're anticipating a kitchen or bathroom reno, don't order a pallet of boring white tiles. These tiles are much more cool and chic.

Remodeling your kitchen or bathroom can get pretty exxy, which is why you need to do your research first. After all, you don’t want to find out the brand new tile floor you’ve just paid for isn’t even in style anymore - after you’ve already laid it.

We’ve seen clean subway back splashes, patterned black-and-white hexagon tiles and even millennial pink tiles take off recently, but what about the up-and-coming tile trends for this year?

If you're looking at remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, these are the tile trends that will take your renovation to the next level.

Zellige tiles

You’ve probably seen these glazed tiles in bathrooms everywhere without necessarily knowing their name. Originating from Morocco, their shimmery yet organic nature makes them ideal for tone-on-tone showers and textured back splashes.

Terracotta tiles

For some, they may bring back nightmares of old 70’s bathrooms, but their modern comeback is far less scary. Today's terracotta tiles are less orange and shiny than the kind that graced many kitchens in the 70's and 80's and more fresh and unexpected. Expect to see these tiles in shades of pastel (millennial pink is having a moment right now) and large hexagon shapes.

Bidding farewell to beige neutrals, decorators will be pleased to know tiles are about to get much more colorful. Navy blue marble mosaics, millennial pink and soft pastel shades are popular at the moment.

Brickwork tiles

Subway tiles haven't completely dropped off the map although their 2018 counterpart is more textured and edgy than the regular white version. They look sleek and sophisticated in black with matching grout which brings us to our next trending tile...

Black on black

Black tiles with matching dark grout is a stunning combination for a sleek and modern bathroom, with the added bonus of the dark grout being a lot easier to keep clean than white grout.
