Leading stone and ceramic products retailer Ciot Inc. is unveiling its tile and slab trends for 2020, and they include eye-catching colour (from pale rosés and minty greens, to punches of indigo blue, forest green, burgundy and black), striking textures, patterns and finishes (imitation cement tiles boasting colourful patterns are growing a fan base for their ability to add visual interest in the home, while neutral textures are favoured to bring a touch of Mediterranean heat or Bohemian-style loft), dynamic shapes (from fish scales to diamonds and hexagons), super-sized tiles, metallics, and distressed looks (what’s old is new again as distressed looks continue to hold appeal for both floors and walls). Stone trends incude stone wrapping (elegant and sophisticated stone slabs will envelope entire rooms as consumers experiment with all surfaces for an inviting, one-of-a-kind decor), colour infusion (warm whites are no longer monotone and flat, but rather, contain lively textures in hints of grey or gold, while rosé, burgundy, jade green and icy blue return in 2020 as light and colourful choices suitable for all rooms), brighter, bolder veins, and natural richness.

Tempaper, the leading manufacturer of removable wallpaper, is launching Surfaces by Tempaper, an exclusive removable wallpaper collection in partnership with The Home Depot. All of the patterns in this new line are designed to serve as realistic representations of features found in luxury homes, such as metallic tile, mosaic stone surfaces, and vintage bookshelves. While these elements are typically costly to install and require a high level of commitment, this collection of self-adhesive wallpaper provides an elegant alternative for a fraction of the cost. Even from a close distance, it’s difficult to distinguish that the designs are removable wallpaper.
