The mid-century modern style is big in home design today, with a timeless look and minimalist quality that appeal to homeowners everywhere. If this popular design style inspired your upcoming home remodel, let’s look at a few tile ideas for mid-century modern bathrooms, kitchens and more.
What is Mid-Century Modern?
“Mid-century modern” is a term used to describe architecture and interior design trends from the middle of the 20th century, roughly the late 1930s to the mid-60s. This design movement is characterized by an uncluttered look with sleek, clean lines, functional furniture, minimal ornamentation and contrasting colors with geometric and organic forms. Choosing the right tile is critical to designing a stunning mid-century space.

Whether you’re looking to renovate your kitchen, bathroom or living area in this style, there are plenty of tile options that inspire a mid-century modern aesthetic. Tile featuring geometric patterns, contrasting colors or a subtle texture can make a stunning addition to a mid-century room.

- Contrasting Colors: Black and white or other contrasting hues add a touch of boldness to the otherwise clean and minimal look of mid-century modern homes. The Cementine Black and White series offers a geometric spin. No matter what type of tile you choose, pairing it with a different colored grout or trim can be a unique way to add contrast.

For another understated look, Cemento Rasato is a cement-look porcelain tile that complements many mid-century modern setups beautifully.
