Miami, Fla.—Tile of Spain, the international brand representing 120 ceramic tile manufacturers belonging to the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturer’s Association (ASCER), presented the top micro trends that it says will shape architectural and interior design in 2021.

Those Tile of Spain trends are as follows:

The clean lines and smooth surface of a simple finish reinforce the value of simplicity and a return to ceramic’s purest roots. The honed looks provide a simple backdrop for the subtle and natural variation of raw materials allowing them to shine.


While previous chromatic palettes were all about infusing color, this year Tile of Spain anticipates a shift toward more toned-down designs. There will be a strong rise in neutral blues and greens encompassing entire collections to stimulate tranquil and calm settings. This scheme will be accompanied by accent pieces in super saturated deep blues and emerald greens to add a dose of color.


With the preference for more demure designs, shading becomes vitally important. The simplest and most effective way to manipulate shade is through texture. Collections featuring hypnotic surfaces will offer spaces a unique sensory experience full of depth and interest.

Organic graphics full of simple wood grains mixed with light and dark nuances become tension anchors for designs, in contrast to the aggressive and imposing stone looks of the past. In this trend, we enter into a second range of layered neutrals that spin from deep red and rusty terracotta through the mid-spectrum browns of woods and oxides through to the peachy, honeyed tones of raw lumber or fired earth.


As technology grows and progresses, Tile of Spain said it sees a rebirth of ceramic art. Painting styles, graphic design and other art forms find fertile soil in decorative ceramic elements. Designed to be flexible in their use and equally suited to be used as accents or entire fields.


The diversity of geometric tiles and the versatility they deliver elevate designs and create a more interesting look. Ceramic collections featuring ornate motifs can be combined with more simplistic designs to infuse drama in residential and commercial spaces. While multilateral formats paired with structured quadratic tiles keep the eyes dancing across walls and floors.


From intricate veining patterns to warm golds and cool silvers, the desire to indulge in eye-catching ceramics holds a space in trending looks. Large-format slabs featuring smoky marbled streaks combined with the soft shimmers of iridescent details will remain the protagonist to conceive glamorous interiors.


Consumers are more focused than ever on analyzing the spaces they spend most of their time in and how they perform to meet their needs. Now more than ever the category must ask, how does it maintain these spaces to keep consumers safe and sanitized? Spanish manufacturers offer ceramic solutions infused with antibacterial properties to adorn countertops, floors, walls and more, and quickly halt the spread of germs and lend to quick and chemical-free cleaning to promote more sustainable environments. Advanced gauging allows tile to select the ideal format for any use-case and design for flexible livability without sacrificing style.
