3 Tile Trends to Inspire your Commercial Design Scheme - Nov 20

Just like our homes, commercial spaces also evolve with the trends – from new and exciting colour palettes, to intricate patterns and innovative materials; there are many elements that influence the way specifiers and designers approach commercial design.

Tiles play an integral part in the design of an interior. Suitable for use on the wall or floor, they are extremely versatile and offer an easy and effective way to refresh a tired looking space. Read on for a selection of commercial tile trends that may inspire your next project.

Industrial-Inspired Colour Palettes

More and more commercial spaces are trying to recreate the industrial look and feel – with shops, restaurants and even offices trying to capture that raw, rustic atmosphere felt in converted buildings or warehouses.


Range: Edge

With their exposed beams and reclaimed wood floor, it’s no surprise that many businesses want to get on board with this modern, minimalist trend. Experiment with colour and introduce an industrial-inspired palette - think charcoals, steel grey and off-whites - to achieve the monochrome, understated aesthetic.

Our Edge tiles fuse together stone and cement to provide a durable yet elegant commercial tile solution. Available for specification in four different surface finishes and five neutral colour options, the tiles are an ideal choice for spaces looking to capture industrial style.

Manufactured in robust full body porcelain, Edge tiles can withstand the everyday demands of commercial spaces; including heavy footfall and regular traffic.

The Desire for Texture

More and more business owners are placing importance on the style and look of their commercial settings, with many now investing heavily in their design schemes in order to make their space stand out.


Range: Genesis

One way to add interest to a space is to add texture, from feature walls to complex floor designs, there are many different ways to utilise tiles to create texture. Perfectly suited to open-plan designs, by implementing a feature wall you can make a stark space feel more compact.

Genesis is available in ten different structures and offers endless design possibilities - the block coloured tile can be layered with other styles to add depth or curated to align with brand guidelines.

Wood Effect Tiles

Wood is a popular choice for interior floors, but it isn’t always suitable for large-scale commercial buildings. With its inherent knots and grain, wood floor is an on-trend option desired by many.


Range: Jungle

However, instead of specifying real wood, opt for a tile that presents all the visual characteristics of wood but with the practical benefits of tiles - allowing for a stylish commercial space that still delivers on functionality as well as style.

Jungle is recognised for its high shade variation and aged surface design. The characterful wood-effect tile is available in three different colourways, and two surface finishes - matt or anti-slip - positioning it as an ideal choice for commercial settings looking to create a visual statement without compromising on health and safety.
