Clerkenwell Design Week 2023, the highly anticipated event for design enthusiasts, has once again provided a platform for showcasing the latest trends in commercial interior design. This year, the event unveiled exciting shifts in colour schemes and tiling techniques, reflecting a departure from the subdued tones of greys and beiges. Additionally, an innovative fusion of large format sheet tiles with smaller format tiles in diverse shapes has emerged as a popular approach, adding contrast and texture to tiled areas. In this blog, we delve into these fascinating trends, highlighting the evolving landscape of commercial interior design.

Bursts of Colours

In a striking departure from the neutral colour palettes that have dominated commercial spaces for years, designers at Clerkenwell Design Week 2023 showcased a resurgence of vibrant and rich colour schemes. Greys and beiges, once ubiquitous, are now making way for bolder hues that inject energy and personality into commercial interiors. The introduction of vibrant blues, verdant greens, and warm earthy tones has breathed new life into office spaces, hotels, and retail environments.

Tiling Transformations

Tiling has always been an integral aspect of commercial interior design, and this year’s event witnessed a significant transformation in the use of tiles. Building upon the popularity of large format sheet tiles in 2022, designers are now combining them with small format tiles in a variety of shapes to create captivating contrasts and textures. This fusion of different tile sizes allows for innovative designs and opens new possibilities for creativity. The juxtaposition of large and small tiles creates visual interest and adds depth to commercial spaces, whether on walls or floors.

The Power of Porcelain Tiles

Porcelain tiles continue to reign supreme in commercial interior design, thanks to their durability, versatility, and aesthetic appeal. These tiles offer a range of benefits, including resistance to stains, scratches, and moisture, making them an ideal choice for high-traffic areas. With advancements in manufacturing techniques, porcelain tiles now come in an extensive array of finishes, patterns, and textures, allowing designers to achieve a myriad of looks that suit diverse commercial settings.
