Top 5 Tile Colors of 2015

By Kali |

As we wrap up this year and look ahead to the quickly approaching new year, we're sharing which of our colors garnered the most attention in 2015. Shades of white are always top performers, but this year we saw more soft neutrals and saturated hues on the rise. Pale grays and sea inspired greens were notably more popular, along with colors of our Glazed Thin Brick, which is the material of choice for many residential and commercial projects.

Below, we're listing the top 5 tile colors of 2015. Want to see more favorites? Head to our Pinterest Board dedicated to this years' hits.

1. White Gloss
White Gloss (along with its recycled clay body counterpart White Wash) are never far from the top of the list. This fresh, smooth white is perfect for nearly any application.

Orlando Soria opted for this white for his kitchen remodel in our Chaine Homme shape:

A timeless choice, this white looks beautiful in standard field sizes as well, as you can see from the kitchen below.

2. Sea Foam
A gorgeous shade of green with blue undertones, Sea Foam was definitely a favorite this year. With its crackly finish and beautiful color variation, it adds a feeling of tranquility to any space.

Our founder chose this color for his bathroom in a 2x6, which is fittingly one of our most popular sizes this year.

3. Oyster Shell
This pale shade of gray has a hint of green to it, which adds the perfect dose of color. Oyster Shell is lovely on its own, but because of its tone, pairs easily with an array of other colors.

Our specialty shape Kite in Oyster Shell, Gypsum and Pyrite. You can really see the subtle undertone of green in this color when it is paired with other cool neutrals.

4. Cotton Brick
A color is suitable for styles ranging from industrial to rustic, Cotton Brick is a soft white that has just a bit of gray and is favored for both residential and commercial use.

Plate, a San Francisco restaurant, chose Cotton Brick in a straight set pattern:

We love seeing our brick used as flooring as well:

5. Snow Brick
Bright and perfectly white, Snow Brick offers a fresh, modern touch to any space.

Selden Standard, a Detriot based restaurant, used our Snow Brick with a dark grout color, which highlights the bright white and classic offset pattern.

As you can see from the kitchen below, Snow Brick is classic enough in shape to work much like white subway tile would.
