From new twists on traditional classics through to statement finishes and textures, we take a look at the 2023 tiling trends. Whether you are tiling a bathroom or searching for durable flooring for your home, these tile trends are sure to offer inspiration for your interior design choices.
Geometric tile style
The popular geometric interior styles we see today are influenced by the graphic retro styles of the 60’s and 70’s, with striking patterns and contrasting colours used to create unique focal points. There are many geometric tiling patterns available for bathroom and kitchen tiles, with our favourite being the range of colours and patterns available within these Luxor tiles.
These Mediterranean inspired tiles incorporate the deep colours of the sea and the surrounding environment, with rich colours and textured combined to create a range of tiles with a handmade, unique feel. The beautiful collection includes a variety of plain and decorative tiles which can be used interchangeably within bathroom tiling and kitchen tiling, with a finish that is guaranteed to make a statement. By incorporating unique geometric patterns, it is possible to create a contemporary feel without compromising on style.
For those looking to create a bold, dramatic look, we recommend pairing these tiles with bold colours and patterned accessories. For a more elegant finish, opt for subtle shades to create a timeless tile style.

Another popular tile style we expect to see in 2023 is bold colours, which will be used to provide a pop of colour against crisp, white walls. A great example of bold yet versatile tiles can be seen with the Navarro Petroleo Landmade range, which could be used as an accent feature, or to completely cover an entire wall for a stylish contrast.
Other bold colours which will we predict will be popular are emerald greens, pinks, corals and burnt oranges. These bold colours will create a modern, creative and high-end feel, particular in statement kitchen and bathroom tile designs.

Over the last few years our living spaces have incorporated many textures, from glittered wallpaper to velvet covered furniture. However, we expect this textured trend to follow through into tile styles in 2023. If you are looking to add character and depth to a room, patterns and textures are a great option.
There are many examples of textured tiles, with stone effect and wood effect being popular every year. However, we think that more unusual patterns and textures will become popular over the next 12 months, with tiles that incorporate colour, texture and premium finishes.
The ceramic Motown range from Navarro is a brilliant example, with both complementary plain and ripple textured variations available. The range includes various tones, such as white, stone and graphite, which makes it possible to create a bespoke tile style, whatever your tile choice.

Sculptured tile style
Sculptured tiles with three dimensional surfaces will bring a new, tactile quality to tiled surfaces in 2023. We expect that sculptured stone tiling will be used to create contrasting surfaces, such as the Navarro Quadrophenia range of tiles, which are inspired by geology to create a natural rock effect. The neutral tones are available in both warm and cool tones, with a matt finish that will not overwhelm the finish of the room.

This is a tile style that has been around for a few years already, however we expect the trend to continue throughout 2023. Patterned porcelain tiles are available in a variety of colours and shapes, from traditional patterns to statement tiles which create a focal point in a tiled floor area.
Just a few years ago floor tiles were often subtle, neutral tones, however more people are searching for bold patterns, bright colours and striking designs which turn floors into a feature.
The Imagine range of porcelain tiles from Navarro are a perfect example of this tile style, and can be used as both wall and floor tiling. These specific tiles are available in monochrome matt finishes, which create a stunning statement pattern when fitted.

Dark Tile Styles
We predict that this year dark tiles will become very popular, especially black wall and floor tiles. As more metallic fittings are installed, we expect more customers to be searching for dark tiles which will combine beautifully with the popular copper and gold fixtures.
There are many black tiles available with matt, gloss and textured tiles all used in many domestic and commercial tiling projects. These Storm tiles from Navarro are an excellent example, with a distinctive black marble effect. The dark finish is emphasised by the gloss finish, whilst the durable finish makes them ideal for large open spaces.

Wood Effect Tiles
The main reasons why many customers choose tiled flooring are durability, versatility and the ability to choose from many tile styles. This is why we predict that wood effect tiles will become hugely popular in 2023. These tiles will recreate the traditional look of a wooden floor, with the benefits of durable, porcelain styles.
The Navarro Chateau range of tiles benefit from a matt finish, with a varied design that will mimic the natural grain of wood. These particular tiles are available in a range of natural wood tones to suit a variety of domestic and commercial interior tile styles.
