Top Rustic Tile & Flooring Trends
Rustic contemporary design is a trend that’s sweeping the nation, with many homeowners and designers opting for warm, chic style elements that add character. Rich wood, beautiful brick, and striking textures are just a few of the characteristics of this rising trend in home design and décor. Let’s take a look at some of the current rustic favorites when it comes to tile and flooring.
#1. Wood-Look Floors
Wood-look tile is a rising star that we’re seeing more and more in homes across the country. Porcelain planks designed to resemble your favorite wood varieties have all the beauty and color of real wood without the maintenance. Scratch resistant and extremely durable, tile that looks like wood adds warmth and a rustic touch to any space.

#2. Brick-Look Tile
Brick is a timeless design choice, but it can be difficult to install and maintain over time. Many homeowners are turning to brick-look tile to achieve a natural aesthetic in their kitchen or living area. Tile that looks like brick features the stunning texture of real brick but can be easily wiped clean, making it a popular choice for backsplashes, accent walls, fireplace surrounds and more.
#3. Gray Wood
Rich mahogany and oak wood finishes are classic, but if you love the chic look of pale, gray wood as much as we do, wood-look tile is a great way to get it. Nothing says “contemporary rustic” more than smooth planks of whitewashed woodgrain—it’s simple and modern, with just the right touch of distressed.

#4. Concrete-Look Flooring
A relative of rustic contemporary design, the rustic industrial trend rests on the stylish pairing of wood and concrete. In a beautifully rustic kitchen, dining room, or living space, concrete or concrete-look tile floors provide a modern contrast to textures like wood and brick.

#5. Quartz Countertops
Like wood and concrete countertops, quartz slab is a trendy choice for coordinating your kitchen and bathroom countertops with your home’s rustic contemporary design. Simple, beautiful gray- and white-toned quartz countertops are becoming a more popular surface. As a plus, it’s extremely easy to maintain, making it ideal for high-traffic kitchens.
Whether you want to add just a touch or two of rustic elements to your home, or you plan to go all-out with a gorgeous rustic contemporary renovation, these are some top trends you may want to include.
