Santorini Tile Flooring

Santorini tile flooring will Keep your home up-to-date starting with your floor. Use this guide to the hottest 2020 tile flooring trends to choose a trendy, durable floor that it will remain stylish for years to come

Unique, durable and stylish tile floors have been at the forefront of what I like to call the Flooring Revolution. For years, tile was known as the affordable alternative to natural stone. It was a flooring staple in kitchens, bathrooms and other water-sensitive areas.

Who would have known that porcelain and ceramic tile would one day rival warm, traditional hardwood flooring?

Over the last decade or so, tile has totally taken off, beautifully replicating the hottest wood looks and even expanding into new textures, as well. to offer the most convincing look and feel.

In 2020 and 2021, you will see an emphasis on large wood-look planks, eye-catching patterns, shapes and designs, and lots of bright new looks

What Other Experts Are Saying

When it comes to trends and style, we want to make sure you’re getting a well-rounded opinion. Here’s a look at what other industry experts are anticipating in 2020:

“Tiles continue to be larger and get larger.  12×24 inch tiles are still popular, but there are tiles as large as 24×48 inches.  They are available with realistic types of stone, such as marble, limestone, travertine, and etc.  The concrete looks has become popular as well.  The wood look is still strong and the tile planks are getting as long as 48” at various widths.  With ink jet technology the tiles give a very realistic wood or stone or concrete looks with the durability and maintenance benefits of porcelain tiles.


The thin tile panels/slabs is a relatively small segment of the tile industry, but it is a fast growing segment.  Porcelain tiles are as large as 5×10 feet and can vary in thickness from 1/8” to ¾”.  It is more difficult tile to install and there is a shortage of qualified and experienced installers to install it.  With ink jet technology the tiles give a very realistic look of the various types of marble, limestone, concrete, and other types of styles and looks.


Rectangle subway tiles are still popular and more options in more sizes will be available in 2020.


The encaustic decorative tiles have become more desirable.  They are available in both the traditional concrete materials, and are not becoming available in porcelain tiles that are thinner, more durable and less expensive.


Glass tile is still going strong.  There are more larger size glass tiles with some as large as 24×24 inches.  There are many options of mosaic glass tiles that come in various shapes as glass tile liners and as field tiles.” – Donato Pompo,


Elongated tiles or planks have made a splash and are here to stay. If you are picking
wood looking tiles, real wood, laminate, or vinyl your best best is 6-8” wide and 24’-48” long. This size lends to a comfortable casual presentation. In ceramic tiles 12” wide and 24” long is the way to go. Gone are the days of square tiles small or large.


We all know that Grey is the new Beige and flooring colors are really showcasing that. Modern ceramic tiles are showing a multitude of grey tones and textures.


The way you lay a flooring pattern can really spice up whether it is trendy or not. You
can pick a very classic floor but lay it in a herringbone pattern to add drama to any
room. Herring bone and Chevon patterns are showing up everywhere, as well as laying a room on a diagonal.
