Tiles have always been a favorite flooring option for bathrooms, kitchens and other rooms where spills happen here and there. Not only are they durable, easy to clean and more economical than most flooring materials; installing tiles on the walls or floors can spruce up the look of the entire room.
Tiles come in a wide range of colors, designs and patterns. How you layout the tiles can also affect the overall look and feel of the room.
In this blog post, we’ll give you a rundown of some beautiful tile patterns that you may use for your next flooring project. Check out the list below and see which one is best for your home.
Herringbone pattern adds sophisticated visual texture to your floor, even when laid out using simple materials. This pattern is achieved by laying long, thin tiles into zigzag formations. This is perfect for accent walls, traditional or transitional kitchen. Due to the angular nature of this pattern, it may be a bit overwhelming when installed in large rooms.
Basketweave pattern can be achieved by laying horizontal and vertical tiles alternately. This creates the impression of the tiles being woven just like a basket.
It’s a simple and easy pattern to achieve, making it a great choice for DIYers. This pattern eliminates the need of cutting tiles, especially when filling a rectangular room.
Harlequin pattern is particularly beneficial for small rooms as it creates the illusion of a bigger space, making the room appear bigger than it really is. To achieve this pattern, simply layout square tiles at 45° angle.
A lot of homeowners combine black and white tiles to create a classy look, but you are free to choose any color that will best suit your interiors.
The classic brick tile pattern is a great option if you’re squeezed for space. Those rectangular tiles can subtly widen a narrow room. This pattern accentuates the horizontal lines; thus, creating the illusion of a bigger space.
