6 Tile Patterns for a Striking Design Statement

Posted by Barbara Haaksma on Jun 13, 2017 8:24:21 AM

With today’s endless tile offerings, one of the best techniques to make a space stand out is to install a tile pattern that expresses personal style and ultimately, design a truly unique room. A floor, wall, or accent tile pattern not only alters a room’s appearance, but it changes the scale of the room.

One-of-a-kind tile patterns are more popular than ever in residential spaces – creating homes to remember. The residential spaces below feature six unique tile patterns that each fill the space with a story of their own.

A herringbone pattern can provide randomized visual intrigue, as seen in our Silver Tumbled Travertine.

Mosaics that introduce a range of color and scale can provide a striking visual, such as our Vista Splash series seen here. Design and installation by Robert Griffin of Premier Kitchen in Houston, Texas.

Play with various angles to create visual groups of spaces. The Alpine series seen here is installed on a slight angle and framed with an ashlar installation of the same tile, creating the feel of an area rug. Installation by The Hills Group in Granite Bay, California.
