COVID-19 brought many events to a halt in 2020. While the postponement of Cersaie (the most significant European tile and bathroom fair in Bologna, Italy) and other design trade shows in 2020 was unfortunate, it didn’t stop Italian manufacturers from unveiling their new tile collections.
2021’s Italian tile trends are optimistic and passionate, welcome distractions from world events. With so many shapes, sizes, patterns, textures, and colours available, this year’s trends highlight the diversity and extraordinary range of applications these tiles possess. Ceramica Bardelli’s collection offers incredible artistic versatility for any space, interior or exterior, commercial or residential spaces.

Read on to learn more about Classic Ceramic’s top three Italian Tile trends for 2021.
Trend: High Gloss & Colours
High gloss tiles are dominating this season, infusing floors and walls with glamour and style.
The CROMIA range channels the colourful world of Milan. These solid ceramic tiles feature a high-gloss luxury finish in a bold colour range. The incredible surface offers true freedom of artistic expression. Adorn your walls with solid colours tiles for maximum impact, or combine with contrasting grout for a unique look, reflecting the essence of your personality.
This style never goes out of fashion, and this year the bold designs of the SODA collection are not to be missed. SODA displays traditional deco style, featuring striking contrasts and a clever juxtaposition of dark and light shades, which creates movement, making this tile a suitable statement piece for both interior and exterior spaces.
Trend: Innovative Edges
This collaboration between Ceramics Bardelli and Meneghello Paolelli Associati pushes the boundaries of tile designs with the exceptional ZIP collection. Coloured grout is trending by becoming part of tile choice and design.
Zip takes this design to the edge by incorporating the joint, making it become a creative element as well as joining tiles. The grout, coloured and shaped, becomes an architectural feature. That allows you to style it across the floor or wall, creating graphic lines that pop. Create one continuous zipper across a wall or create movement and the element of surprise with organic placement. Whatever aesthetic you prefer, this collection is proving to be one of the hottest trends in European porcelain tiles in 2021.
