Tiles are widely used in interior design because of their durability and attractive appearance. Most tiles have matching designs to ensure that the same pattern looks good from one tile to the next, so it’s important to choose carefully which tile pattern you’d like to use on your walls and floors. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the most popular options, as well as what makes them stand out from the crowd. Read on to learn more about four of the top tile patterns available today.
This is a popular tile patterns that’s been used for over 100 years, but it’s still going strong. The 45’er is constructed from two rows of rectangular tiles. The first row consists of nine tiles across and four rows down, while each subsequent row has eight tiles across with four rows beneath it. This results in a staggered diagonal pattern that looks classy, works well in any room or setting and adds character to walls and floors. It also doesn’t hurt to choose from various materials—stone, ceramic, glass—and countless color options to suit your style preferences.
If you’re looking to create a pattern that looks as though an artist created it, then there is no better pattern than one called stacker. This pattern stacks one tile on top of another to form an alternating pattern. This is often used as a border or as a focal point in a room. Borders are perfect places to use stacker patterns since they can accentuate any other tile patterns that have been used throughout a room. Keeping that in mind, if you are using a border with stacked tiles, each side should be consistent. Otherwise, your room may feel disjointed and rushed instead of thought out and finished.
Not quite as popular as it once was, but still a classic tile pattern option, herringbone tile patterns are characterized by a thick horizontal row of small tiles flanked by two thin rows of larger tiles. The wide gaps give herringbone patterns a striking appearance that can easily draw attention to any wall or floor space. Herringbone is especially popular in kitchens because of its ability to accentuate color without distracting from a focal point. While many types of tile can be used for a herringbone pattern, ceramic is typically used on floors, while glass tile is more common on walls. To pull off either look successfully, you’ll need highly contrasting colors – white or grey walls paired with yellow or blue tiles work well, as do grey walls with pink/green/blue/black glass tile accents.
The Brick Layer
The Brick Layer pattern looks like it sounds; like brickwork without all of those pesky bricks! This tile pattern is made up of bricks (about one inch wide) laid out in horizontal rows. If you’re looking to make your flooring pop, consider using lighter colors for your bricks, which will make them stand out. Though there are no actual rules as to how big or small these bricks can be or if they can be different colors, most installers choose to keep things uniform. Make sure you leave enough space between each brick so that dirt doesn’t get stuck underneath them! Get ready to renovate with The Brick Layer pattern!
