Creating Tile Patterns

Creating Tile Patterns

With both a thriving housing market and more homeowners seeking a design refresh for their familiar interiors, kitchen and bathroom remodels are at an all-time high. Whether you want to elevate your flooring, walls, backsplash, countertops, or showers, tile is the perfect material to express your personality with texture, color, and pattern! Transform your bare surfaces and walls by creating tile patterns for appropriate contrast and standout focal design elements:

Offset Tile

For this classic tile pattern, you can use your favorite square or rectangle tile of any size. Simply lay the tile in rows and shift each row subtly to the left or right to create an offset pattern. The most common brick or running pattern is a traditional 50/50 offset, but a varied offset of 40/60 or 30/70 can create a softer effect. Popular subway tile is perfect for creating this familiar look!

Common rectangular sizes of your favorite tile variety are perfect for producing this chic geometric pattern and offer a savvy way to ramp up the luxurious appearance of any space. A match made in heaven for modern décor, herringbone tile adds a pop to monochromatic color schemes and is ideal for enhancing the perspective of a smaller room to feel larger.
