Top 4 Kitchen & Bath Tile Trends of 2024

Porcelain tile is a mainstay in the design world and remains one of the most in-demand materials for surfaces in the home. Clay-based and kiln-fired, porcelain’s composition is exceptionally dense. Because it’s pressed and fired at higher temperatures than other clay-based materials, it’s much less porous and therefore, is more durable. Thanks to its resilient qualities, this tile can provide lasting style in rooms that experience heavy wear and tear, like the kitchen and bathrooms.

According to the experts at Azure, the real challenge when it comes to choosing tile for these rooms is investing in a design that can hold its own for long enough to leverage its performance benefits. Investing in a certain look or style is such a personal decision – we understand that it can be a daunting task!

To help you meet this challenge, here are four kitchen and bath tile trends that we predict will see a lot of play in 2024 and beyond:

Porcelain floor tiles that look like wood offer lasting style in the kitchen

With continued emphasis on biophilic design, natural design elements like wood-inspired porcelain floor tiles will have a place in the home this year. With their hyper-realistic appearance, porcelain wood tiles can bring a sought-after warmth and coziness into a kitchen, which is where most families tend to gather. What’s more, wood-look porcelain tiles transcend any limitations of traditional hardwood floors because of their inherent resistance to scratching, staining, chipping and damaging effects caused by moisture. Keep in mind that the current trend leans more Scandinavian than farmhouse. “Instead of rustic wood-look floor tile, think minimalist, clean lines and light wood finishes,” adds a home design contributor to Family Handyman.

Marble-look porcelain tiles exude quiet luxury in a bathroom

Most designers agree that marble bathroom ideas are “big business” in 2024, according to Ideal Home’s latest feature on inspiring tile trends. Bring this quiet luxury trend to life by using marble-look porcelain tiles across the bathroom floor and walls, creating a timeless and ethereal look. Consider extending a bright white marble-look tile with slight veining overhead to create a fully enclosed wet room, which can make an ordinary bathroom feel more like a spa-like experience. 

Most importantly, porcelain tile’s inherently dense composition and subsequent resistance to moisture will ensure long-term performance – a must in a bathroom or wet room renovation.


Porcelain wall tiles provide full backsplash coverage in the kitchen 

Generally, kitchen backsplashes cover the wall behind the stove, extending only up to the range hood. But according to the latest Houzz U.S. Kitchen Trends Study, many homeowners are opting for a statement-making backslash that covers the entire wall and extends up to the ceiling. The same Houzz survey confirmed that porcelain and ceramic tiles have been, and continue to be, the most popular choice for this application. The home design experts at Southern Living attribute this sentiment for full backsplash coverage to the idea that “homeowners are bringing their personalities out in their kitchens like never before,” adding that “backsplash tiles gives you an opportunity to have a focal point that’s both functional and beautiful.”

Pattern plan across bathroom surfaces using classic porcelain tile silhouettes  

When it comes to the top tile trends of 2024, we can’t leave out pattern play. For an updated take on a timeless design choice, consider taking a subway tile and configuring it in an unexpected way on a bathroom wall. For example, lay down a chevron or herringbone pattern for a playful look. “Experimenting with classic silhouettes is the perfect solution for someone who wants to engage in trends without assuming the risk factor of potentially going out of style,” says the design experts at Martha Stewart Living. We love this idea because it’s important to create spaces in the home that will look just as inspiring in 2024 as they will several decades down the road.
