Home News Tile of Spain presents various trends at Coverings 2023

Orlando, Fla.—More than 70 Spanish companies presented new products, innovations and trends during Coverings 2023, North America’s largest international tile and stone exhibition and conference, held here April 18-21.

This year, Spanish companies worked meticulously to curate flexible lines that cater to the vastly changing needs of projects large and small. Be it art, color, nature or science, Spanish tile makers drew inspiration from all aspects of life to craft rich collections full of multifaceted designs.

The following offers insight into trending collections and designs on display during this year’s exhibition:

tile trends 2023In vein

Marble has a long-standing history, serving as the look of choice for some of the most beautiful projects around the world. Now, the Spanish ceramic tile industry has combined high-tech performance with the visual purity synonymous with this classic material. Dramatic veined graphics in opulent shades ranging from abundant blues and striking ambers to luscious coppers and smokey charcoals illuminate interiors, creating environments full of movement but with all the advantages of tile from anti-slip to stain resistance and in finishes that range from high polish to matte.

If walls could talk

Wall coverings are receiving a playful refresh in 2023. Advancements in inkjet printing have paved the way for lush graphics and blooming patterns to be presented upon large slabs like never before. Backsplashes, accent walls and interior facades are receiving a dose of personality to liven interiors and invigorate the senses.

tile trends 2023Small size, big impact

A classic bet, subway tiles are always a timeless choice for a myriad of surfaces. Artisans are experimenting with these rectangular formats like never before, drawing further interest from these beloved pieces. From new sizes and glazing styles that intensify the desired effect of each application to vertical, chevron or herringbone installations, subway tiles are seeing a revitalization that is here to stay.

New wave terrazzo

Captivating and show-stopping, terrazzo tiles have long been a favorite thanks to their striking stone-speckled surface. While previous iterations of this genre of flooring focused on more organic stylings, this year’s motifs focus on audacious inlays. This scheme will be accompanied by deeply saturated colors and larger-than-life fragments in varying sizes that seemingly pop out of the floor.

tile trends 2023Satiating surfaces

While this trend can be considered open to interpretation, the theory behind the concept is a question that should be considered during every design process, “does it bring you joy?” Filling a space with materials and elements that bring about feelings of safety and comfort is imperative to crafting thoughtfully designed atmospheres. Whether its colors, patterns or textures, enhancing a room with surfaces that evoke positivity and happiness should always be top of mind.
