We might be rounding the corner of a long spanned neutral palette in the home! Are you excited?! Daltile works closely with Color Marketing Group (CMG) which identifies the direction of color and design trends, forecasting one to three years in advance for color-related products and services. These color trends translate through all types of consumer goods including automobiles, fashion, furnishings and of course, ceramic tile! One industry influences the other, making color dynamic to our culture. We all want to be mindful of the market and resale, but there are subtle, classic ways to incorporate color in tile and Daltile has that product for us!

CONTRAST One easy way to incorporate color is through contrasting wall and floor tile. Say the choice is classic white subway tile on the walls, consider Daltile’s wide array of color options in the Color Wheel Collection in Mosaics or Linear for the floor!

ENCAUSTIC We have featured encaustic, or concrete tiles, before. They are another great way to bring pattern, warmth and color to any fireplace surround, backsplash, or even floor!

CONFECTIONARY A new designer favorite Daltile line is Confectionary. With colors that pay tribute to the 1950’s, this tile will rock your taste buds and leave you longing to find a way to integrate them.

GROUT Timid to go bold? Grout is a simple way to incorporate contrasting color to a neutral tile!

The Daltile Showroom in Fishers is newly renovated and displays a collection of brilliant, colorful tile, along with the neutrals! Call to schedule your visit at 317-841-0883 or visit their website and explore the possibilities at
