Set the Stage With an Ideal Tile Pattern Selection.

Before selecting tile for your next home remodeling project, think about how you would like the tile pattern laid out.  The right tile pattern will add more interest and depth to your space.  Whether you’re laying tile flooring, a kitchen back-splash or a shower surround, don’t be afraid to get creative in designing a unique tile pattern.  Get creative with tile, and don’t shy away from using it as a way to add eye-popping style to your space.

Because tiles come in such a wide range of sizes and colors, finding a design that suits your needs is easy. There’s literally no end to the number of different patterns you can create and you’re only limited by your imagination. Flip through design magazines or visit your local tile stores for more ideas. Most tile showrooms have displays of floor patterns and sales staff to recommend sizes and configurations to suit your space.Set the stage with an ideal tile pattern selection.

Here is a guide of basic patterns to get you started.

  1. Straight lay. This is the simplest tile pattern. The pattern stacks square tiles with the grout lines running vertically and horizontally like graph paper.
  2. Diagonal. Tile is set on a 45-degree angle. It add a little interest and makes the floor feel expansive.
  3. Running bond. This basic layout is also called a brick pattern or offset pattern. The tiles are offset by half the width of the tile. With the introduction of large format tile, the classic brick pattern layout has been dropped by the major manufacturer and replaces by a new suggested format that offsets the tile by no more than one third.
  4. Checkerboard. Two colors of square tiles alternate to create this pattern. They can be set straight or on the diagonal.
  5. Diagonal with dots. Large tiles are notched at regular intervals with smaller accent tiles.
  6. Pinwheel. Also known as Hopscotch, the tile pattern surrounds a square tile with four rectangular tiles, each overlapping the end of the other and repeat.
  7. Basket-weave. This pattern uses rectangular tiles with a length that is two or three times the height. The tile are installed two or three stacked horizontally adjacent to two or three vertically. This can be done either horizontally and vertically, or on a 45-degree diagonal. This classic pattern is made with squares and rectangles to create a woven effect.
  8. Modular. Three or more different-sized tiles are used to form a pattern (e.g. The Versailles pattern).
  9. Herringbone. The tile run in a horizontal zig-zag pattern with each one at a right angle to the previous one. This pattern adds sophisticated visual texture to the floor.
