GIO Tile Looks at What’s Hot in Tile Design in 2023

Floors and walls in commercial spaces are impractical to update often because these elements have to strike a balance between trendy and timeless in order to stay relevant as well as stand the test of time. Floors and walls in these spaces must also be durable, easy to maintain, and in many environments, easy to sanitize. Ceramic and porcelain tiles can answer all those requirements and more, but designers and their clientele still need to know what’s hot and what’s not in tile design. Here’s a look at what’s trending in 2023 — tiles that are very much on-trend but will perform well and look great doing it for the long term.

Onyx Looks

With a beautiful, luminous quality, onyx creates a luxurious look in any space. Porcelain that looks like onyx is a great choice for spaces where you would want the look of natural stone without the maintenance that comes with it. Capture this sumptuous stone look with our Agata and Rex porcelain tile lines.

Unique Wood Looks

Wood-look tiles have long been a popular choice for floors and walls in commercial spaces because they offer the warm, natural look of wood without the maintenance and are far more durable in demanding environments. Wood look porcelain tiles have become more and more realistic over the years, to the point it is often hard to tell the difference.  Our Char porcelain collection offers an artistic take on the wood look that’s sure to add personality to any commercial space.

Shapes & Patterns

Shaped tiles and patterned tiles have continued to be wildly popular, and tile designers are getting even more creative with twists on the classics. Check out our Hex_Leonis, Geometry Pennyround, Vintage, and Pietra Marmi.

Vertical Subway Tiles

Subway tile remains perennially popular and will continue to be because it is such a timeless design. But tile designers are putting all kinds of twists on this iconic tile, and vertical installations of elongated subway tiles are a hot trend. The vertical lines create a fresh, unique aesthetic, but also make the space look taller by drawing the eye upward. Check out our Naxos, Brick_Mood, and Antico subway tile collections.

Glossy & Glamourous

Glossy, luxurious stone looks with big, bold veining capture more light and create a glamorous vibe to commercial spaces. Look to Mural and GIO _Thin 5.5 in Statuary and Calactta polished for the glossy & glam look.
