Update Your Home With the Year’s Latest Home Design and Tile Trends
So far, this decade has been an explosion of new home design trends, and 2022 is bringing more to the table. Between maximalism, cottagecore, and grand millennial style, it can be hard to keep up! So we’ve compiled a list of the 10 must-have home design trends to help simplify the decorating process for you. Join us as we reveal the latest design, color, and tile trends for the new year.
While the 2010s valued minimalism, the 2020s are all about maximalist design and decor. Maximalism believes that “more is more,” and the look consists of bold patterns, bright colors, and curated collections. You may be able to tell from some of our own cement tile collections that we are all about maximalist style! After all, why settle for boring tiles when you can bring in lively patterns and vibrant colors?
2. Pattern Mixing
Speaking of patterns, 2022 home trends say the more, the merrier! If you want to have florals, stripes, and plaids all in the same room, then go for it. Pattern mixing is one of the top anticipated trends for 2022 home design. Take the look one step further and create your own one-of-a-kind tilework patterns with our tile customization tool. With dozens of patterns, colors, and sizes to choose from, the possibilities are endless!
Sometimes, it is easy being green. According to 2022 Color of the Year announcements, green is the top trending color this year. Major paint companies like Benjamin Moore, Behr, and Sherwin-Williams unveiled soothing shades like Evergreen Fog, Olive Sprig, and Laurel Leaf in response to homeowners looking to incorporate a natural feel inside. Check out our Flora cement tile series to bring the outdoors in while staying on-trend. Inspired by springtime foliage, this pattern is available in five colors—including green!
Straight lines can feel rigid and formal, but 2022 home trends are all about making people feel comfortable and relaxed. So, curves are in! Curved lines add softness, tie back into natural organic forms, and create a tranquil environment inside. Consider choosing a patterned tile featuring curved lines or solid scale tiles that break the mold. These curved tiles resemble scales and ocean waves when installed. (It’s hard not to feel relaxed when you’re thinking about the beach!)
We’ve all gotten stuck in an Instagram scroll where every design inspiration photo looked exactly the same. How boring, right? Designers and homeowners have tossed uniformity out the window and are now embracing our favorite home design trend of 2022—personalization. Just because everyone else picked white subway tiles for their bathroom doesn’t mean you have to. This year, resolve to make home design choices just for you no matter how quirky they are!

6. Colorful Kitchens
White on white kitchens have had their fun. Now, colorful kitchens are making waves among 2022 home design trends. (And, we couldn’t be happier!) Kitchens are the lively centers of the home, so they should have vibrant designs made to inspire delicious meals and festive gatherings. If you want to dip your toe into the colorful kitchen trend, start by updating your backsplash. Our mini 4x4 pattern tiles will add the perfect pop of color and stand up to the messiest chefs.
7. Fun Details
Homes just want to have fun! Interior design shouldn’t be stuffy or boring. Home design magic happens when fun details bring a smile to your face. Sometimes it is the smallest touches that make the biggest difference. Recently, we launched our LiLi Home collection, which takes our iconic cement tile patterns and brings them to home goods like oven mitts and aprons. What could be more fun than an oven mitt that matches your kitchen backsplash?
8. Brass Accents
Brass accents began picking up popularity in the late 2010s, and the trend continues to grow. Homeowners love the warmth and shine brushed brass light fixtures, plumbing fittings, and hardware add to the home. Why not compliment your fixtures and hardware with our brass insert cement tiles. Designs include brass floral accents, bars, triangles, and even dragonflies.
9. Multifunctional Rooms
Over the past few years, we’ve all continued to put an ever-increasing list of demands on our homes. We need a home office, a weightlifting space, a yoga studio, guest quarters, and a room to house them all. Multifunctional rooms are becoming a big trend in 2022 because we need their practicality! Creating a space that can accommodate multiple purposes can be a challenge. You need to find the right balance of durability, style, and comfort. Cement tiles are an excellent option for rooms that need durable flooring (like a home gym) and an inviting appearance (like a guest room). With the right design, your multifunctional room may become your go-to hangout spot as well!
10. Indoor-outdoor Living
We’ve been fans of indoor-outdoor living for a while now, but 2022 home design trends are taking the concept to a whole new level. Homeowners are searching for ways to feel connected to the outdoors, turning their backyards into resort-style retreats. To increase the livability of your outdoor spaces, consider expanding your patio, adding a screened porch, installing an outdoor shower, creating a fire pit, and building an outdoor kitchen. When finishing out these spaces, treat them like indoor rooms. Instead of placing patio furniture on a boring concrete pad, add durable cement tiles that add a pop of color while standing up to the elements. All that’s left is to kick back, soak up the sun, and enjoy!
