In need of inspiration to create a trendy bathroom or revitalize your hallway or kitchen? Let’s surf together the ceramic design trends from across the big pond to here. Ready for an epic virtual journey?

As we’ve always observed, design, decoration and fashion trends emerge unequivocally from our European neighbors. These trends drift soon or later towards us with their splendor to brighten up and refresh our interiors.

What should we be expecting? The “queens of imitation” tiles and large-format ceramics.

Ceramic and Tile 2021 Trends

As European climates are somehow different from ours, we can observe that our neighbors have no restraint in using ceramic for all surfaces. The effects do create atmospheres that are as complex as minimalist, and above all, breathtaking!

We are familiar with the endless options of imitation of marble, wood, metal or of concrete ceramics. But, when it comes to the Burgundy stone imitation, our neighbors are charmed by the version. We have discovered that real stone has a limestone and sedimentary base which can take on various appearances due to spots, veins and sometimes fossils which may be apparent in the rock. Also, depending on where it comes from, North or South of the province, from which it takes its name, it can be more or less yellow, ocher, white, pink or even bluish.

Large format Ceramic Trend 

Sticking to our most popular imitations, we invite you to dive into the 2021 Ceramic Trend: large-formats! They are indeed simply sublime by their size, textures and their neutrality of earth colors. See the work of Italian designer Matteo Thun who creates decors that are both simple and harmonious.

The DYS program, or rather “Design Your Slabs”, is a new technological service from the Italian company Graniti Fiandre which allows any image or illustration to be reproduced on specific ceramics. Designers, architects and artists from this European region can now let their imaginations run wild. Who wouldn’t envy them?
