2018 Laundry Room Tile Design Trends

If you’re spending a decent amount of time there, the laundry room is just as important as any other room in your home—treat it like it is. Many people create a “happy place” with unique style to do the laundry instead of relegating the laundry to a dark corner of the basement. While we can’t make doing the laundry the highlight of your day, designing your laundry room with as much care as you would any other room will help make it a place you don’t mind spending time in.

Backsplash Designs

Laundry room backsplashes are becoming quite popular because it’s a place to show your personality and brighten up the space (and maybe even make doing the laundry a little more fun!). Since it is usually separate from the rest of your house, many people use their laundry room backsplash tile to add a bright color or pattern, like with encaustic or encaustic-look tiles, interesting mosaic or something bolder than they’d normally use in the rest of the house. Hexagons, arabesques, 3-D tiles and mosaics all work perfectly to serve as a backsplash and accent.

Design Tip: Choosing Materials

Ceramic, porcelain, marble, glass, travertine…when there are so many options, it can be hard to know what tile material to choose. Man-made tiles, like porcelain and ceramic, are not only durable, but they come in an almost-endless selection. Different colors, shapes and finishes mean that there is always a perfect tile for your project. Stone tiles also offer a large variety of naturally occurring variations but have different care properties. There’s no one perfect tile for everyone—it just depends on the look you want to achieve. The Tile Shop has a large selection of tiles that’s growing everyday, so there’s always something new to discover.

Design Tip: Choosing Colors

For your floors, choosing a non-slip tile that doesn’t show the dirt can be a good idea to help hide messes if your laundry room doubles as a mudroom. Your laundry room’s backsplash is a place to have fun. A bright and cheerful color, design or pattern livens up the space while being durable and functional. Blue, green, red, pink, silver and even metallics are all options for your laundry room wall tile.
