When it comes to tile trends, it’s easy to pick out the products and styles that are popular on a national level—including, for instance, wood-look tile, gray and white color schemes, marble countertops and larger-size tiles. While some of our store managers have noticed customers showing an interest in nationally popular products like these, you might be surprised by some of the regional differences in design trends.

While our customers in Denver, CO and at some of our California locations—Palm Desert, Roseville, Ontario and Livermore—seem to be in line with those trends, other regions have developed different tastes.

Let’s take a look at what’s trending in some of our other Arizona Tile locations around the country.
