One of the most important design elements in your luxury home is your floor and wall tiles.
Choosing the right floor tile pattern is just as important as choosing the type of tile –– it is essential to the feel, look, and durability of your home.
Making decisions about types of tile can be overwhelming as a homeowner. There are endless patterns and styles to choose from. As your interior designer, we at Alisha Taylor Interiors can make this decision process simple.
Read on to learn more about the different types of tile patterns, what to consider when choosing your floor tile patterns, and how we can connect you to professional tile installation services to make sure every tile is laid in the right spot.
What Is a Tile Pattern?
A tile pattern is how tiles are arranged on the floor or a wall. It may sound simple, but there are many arrangements to choose from, and each can dramatically alter a room’s appearance.
This is an opportunity for you to get truly creative and express your personal style to design rooms that are uniquely “you.”
Different Types of Luxury Tile Patterns
Let’s go over some of the most popular floor tile patterns, as well as what to consider when choosing each type.
This classic pattern is distinguished by its v-shaped rows at 45-degree angles. It is often used as a floor tile pattern or as a backsplash. The wide v-pattern creates an illusion of more width, making this an ideal tile pattern for small spaces such as bathrooms or hallways. We advise against using the herringbone tile pattern in large rooms as it can look too busy.
This is a classic and popular tile pattern to use with subway tiles and a contrasting grout color to highlight the design.
2. Brick (horizontal or vertical)
This is a type of tile pattern that you have likely seen many times before. The brick tile pattern is organized so that each tile starts directly in the middle of the one below it.
If you are going for a simple and clean look in your room, this is a great tile pattern choice. The brick layering gives any wall or floor an industrial, metropolitan, “subway” effect. You will see it most often used in walkways or as a backsplash to give the illusion of height.
Hexagon tile patterns are a playful way to add visual depth to any room. This style of tile comes both as larger individual tiles, typically used for flooring, or in sheets of smaller tile.
This tile pattern is perfect for any area where you may want to draw the eye’s attention such as a kitchen backsplash or an accent wall in your shower.
4. Stacked (grid or vertical)
If you’re looking for simplicity, look no further than a stacked tile pattern. This style is exactly what it sounds like, square or rectangular tiles stacked directly on top of one another.
To add more visual variety, you can alternate the colors of the tiles creating a “checkered” look.
For an elegant, European feel, consider the Versailles pattern. This style combines square and rectangular tiles to create a repeating timeless design reminiscent of the old world.
This pattern is easy to install and works in any type of room, or as a transition tile from one room to the next.
6. Diagonal (diamond)
This style takes square tiles and places them at a 45-degree angle to create a “diamond” pattern. It is typically used as a backsplash or as an accent piece. But it can also be used as a floor tile pattern to give a room a wider feel.
The basketweave is a timeless tile pattern that uses rectangular tiles or a mosaic of tiles with tiny squares to create the appearance of a woven basket.
This is a delicate design that is best used in small spaces.
A close relative to the herringbone pattern. This style is currently in vogue because of its ability to turn any room into a classic look.
The tiles are placed at a 45 degree angle, but with the shorter end of the tiles lined to meet up, creating a look similar to the logo of the well-known Chevron energy company.
As you can see, there are so many tile pattern options to choose from! If you’re feeling overwhelmed or simply want the eye of an expert designer, let us help you bring your vision to life.
