While trends come and go in the tile industry, we’ve noticed that now perhaps more than ever, residential and commercial spaces are relying on neutral palettes. Many associate clean whites and soft greys and beiges with the minimalist, farmhouse look that has gained popularity over the last couple of years. Neutrals are a classic way to make a space versatile and allow for other pops of color given through accessories and furniture without the commitment. Below are three collections from our manufacturers that are some of our favorite “new neutrals” and could be the perfect addition to any home! 

Crossville Inc Yin + Yang Collection

The photo above is of Crossville Inc’s Yin + Yang collection in Koi Pond. The natural stone’s herringbone pattern draws the eye and the variety of subtle colors featured in it provides just the right amount of interest. As shown, it goes perfectly with white walls and beige carpets, yet the texture and varied colors in the tone keep the room from feeling lackluster. 

Lunada Bay Contourz Collection

Lunada Bay’s Contourz collection in Sea Salt is used in the back wall of the shower niche in the photo above. This three-dimensional concrete tile transforms walls into sculpture, and the flat field tiles create a quiet elegance. It’s incredibly sturdy and adds so much to a space, especially when used sparingly like here! It’s truly a “new” take on a neutral color. 

Sonoma Tilemakers Dakota Collection
For a modern rustic tile, try Sonoma Tilemakers’ Dakota collection. Curated in twelve hues and available in four sizes, this tile works across many different styles, especially given that the majority of the colors are pleasing neutral tones. With the ability to be dressed up or dressed down, this is the perfect tile for those who enjoy having the option to change the design of a space at a whim without needing an entire redo.
