Different Textures That Are Trending in Design Remodeling

As with anything, trends have a way of cycling back through time after so many years, and recently texture trends have been making their way to the forefront again. These textures can range from anything, being that fabrics are soft or rough, to tiles being bumpy or smooth. Either way, people have begun to experiment with different texture styles again, 20 years after many deemed the original styles to be dreadful. However, the modern styles utilizing texture are way more appealing. In this blog post, we are going to look at different areas where texture is utilized in current design remodeling projects.

Kitchen Tile Backsplash

Tile backsplashes generally are known for their sleek, subway tile look that stands out from your kitchen cabinets, and overall bringing the entire space together. However, in recent years, people are experimenting with texture more frequently. Backsplashes can utilize texture by being bumpy, or by each tile being a different size or geometric shape. Most popularly used is tile that has a rounded look, or bubbling effect, that makes it seem as if the tile is coming off the wall, adding more texture to the overall space. Almost every design utilizes texture even if you aren’t aware of it.


 Everyone can most likely remember when wallpaper was the design trend that almost everybody be grudgingly dealt with since it was the hot trend years ago, but then they gradually grew to hate it. Great news, wallpaper designs have come a long way! In trends today, wallpaper is seen as being a great option to use on an accent wall, or on a standout wall in a space. It’s a great option since the wallpaper won’t completely overpower the space, but it instead adds a nice pop of color or uniqueness. Also, wallpaper patterns are truly endless, ranging from simple geometric designs to extravagant textured floral designs.

Bathroom Shower Tile

Seeing texture used throughout a bathroom design isn’t anything new in recent years, but it still is a trend that is very popular throughout shower designs. For example, if you’re a fan of a more natural stone appearance, then you might pick a textured tile for your shower floor that will feel as if you’re walking outside. Alternatively, you might prefer the style of the more traditional subway tiles that have a smooth appearance. No matter what style you prefer, there is a clear trend of texture being seen more frequently throughout bathroom designs.

Although there are many design ideas, it’s interesting to see that texture is slowly becoming a more popular trend that can frequently be seen throughout design remodeling projects.
