Design elements from the 1980s are huge right now, and square tiles provide a fun throwback to that era. “Square tile is definitely timeless and a classic tile shape, but it definitely had its moment in the ’80s and ’90s and has made a comeback in a fresh and modern way,” Gibson says. The ’80s iteration of the simple shape involves selecting fun colors — even purposefully mismatched ones, as shown in blogger and graphic designer Joy Cho’s bathroom above. Think of tiling a backsplash, shower surround, or even full wall covering in this way as creating your own personal, life-sized Tetris board in the colors you love. “Essentially in tile, you can use all shapes, and the idea is to elevate bold, bright colors accentuated in shapes,” CEO of Mercury Mosaics and tile designer Mercedes Austin says.
