Incorporating the 2021 Pantone Color of the Year in Kitchen and Bathroom Tiles

For over 20 years, Pantone has officially chosen its Colors of the Year, which continues to influence multiple industries. Industries such as fashion, industrial design, and home furnishings often adopt Pantone’s Color of the Year. It even plays a role in home renovations. Needless to say, the chosen 2021 Pantone Color of the Year will be no exception. In fact, two gorgeous colors made the cut for the coming year – Ultimate Gray and Illuminating (yellow). So, if you have a renovation project on the horizon, consider incorporating one (or both) of these colors into your design.

What Does Each 2021 Pantone Color Represent?

Pantone perfectly describes these color choices as, “A marriage of color conveying a message of strength and hopefulness that is both enduring and uplifting.” Considering 2020 has been a difficult year for everyone across the globe, Pantone’s message is very well-timed. Not to mention, each of the 2021 Pantone colors works great for your kitchen and bathroom tiles.

Ultimate Gray is the ideal neutral shade if you’re looking for something other than white. It adds warmth to a room without being overpowering. Illuminating, on the other hand, will help to brighten and energize a room. Here are some tips for using both shades in your home.

1. Choose Gray Floor Tiles for Your Kitchen or Bathroom

The easiest way to incorporate the Pantone Color of the Year into your designs is in the tile for your flooring. You may opt for something with a Moroccan vibe. Or, a more modern tile with a hexagon shape. You may even choose to keep it simple with a natural look. But, no matter what option you choose, you can’t go wrong. Even more, with gray tiles, you won’t have to worry about the colors of your cabinets, fixtures, rugs, or curtains clashing with the flooring.

2. Go with a Gray Backsplash and Yellow Paint in the Kitchen

For a modern go-to look in the kitchen, you can’t go wrong with subway tile. It’s popular and trendy, but also is a look that will stand the test of time. There are few yellow tiles, so an easier way to incorporate the yellow would be with paint or accessories.  Overall, these subway tile ideas from HGTV will get the creative juices flowing.

3. Create an Accent in Your Bathroom with Yellow Tiles

Make a statement by creating an accent wall in your bathroom! You can accomplish this in your shower by using two complementary tiles. On the other hand, you could always go for a subtle look with an accent band instead. Both are great ways to incorporate the Color of the Year in tile. Especially if you use a shade like Illuminating or Ultimate Gray.
