Trends in ceramic tiles in 2021 by Mykonos Cerámica.

After the first post of the year by Mykonos Cerámica, referring to the challenges of the sector, in this second article we will list some trends in ceramic tiles in 2021 that await us.

Luxury and shine

Sophistication and restrained luxury take hold in ceramic tiles this new year, with rich grain effects and pronounced tonal changes.

Ceramic floors and wall tiles inspired by marbles and with a polished or ultra-gloss effect are on the rise. Among them, the calacatta style stands out, that locates black streaks on white backgrounds.

Gradients also help to create luxurious spaces: dark blues and black combined with highlights are essential to give depth.

The new Luxury collection by Mykonos Cerámica was ahead in 2020 to the conception of sumptuous spaces.


The trend of using large tiles continues. The 120×120 or 120×60 tiles will be present as part of the decorations, as will the large-format ceramic tiles for interior design, architecture and contract projects.
These large-format porcelain tiles conquer any place, being incorporated into increasingly spacious spaces: kitchens and bathrooms, walls and floors, facades, countertops, tables…

Small tiles, with a vintage aesthetic, continue to be in fashion. Geometric shapes and patterns of traditional-contemporary inspiration such as stripes, rhombuses or ethnic will offer a great variety of compositions and different shapes to combine to suit the consumer.


White colour and soft neutrals are still in the top.
We could see beige and pink shades, metallic appearances, or colored glasses that suggest a natural origins.

In the warm range we have saffron, terracotta or garnet tones, in contrast to wild tones such as fir green and turquoise blue.


In 2021, the creation of well-being will be sought through ceramics, projecting environments and buildings that generate a feeling of warmth. For this, a return to the origins and nature is proposed. With reference to materials such as stones, cement and concrete, wood, terracotta or natural fibers.

Scandinavian trends and the bases of Japanese interior design are incorporated into ceramic collections with folded shapes and subtle reliefs, creating different light diffusions.

Thus, simple designs and one-color pieces coexist with volume tiles, rounded, with spongy effects that enhance the feeling of comfort.
