THE BEST FLOOR TILE PATTERNS YOU HAVE TO KNOW


THE BEST FLOOR TILE PATTERNS YOU HAVE TO KNOW


Tile pattern is just as important as the materials and colors you choose for your space. At House and Harmony Interior Design Studio, in San Diego, CA, we like to advice our clients of the options available when installing their tile, in connection to their overall design and size of their space. If you are doing a kitchen or bath renovation, and now have gotten through the exciting part of selecting your gorgeous new tile. Now you want to consider the most favorable direction to set the tile in your space. What pattern will you use? The pattern you choose will say so much about your space, your taste and style, will it be simple and unpretentious, or will it be trendy and make a bold statement.

The most commonly used tile sets are the grid, brick and the off-set look. Let’s take a look at their differences.


GRID/ STACK

Tiles are stacked one above the other making simple grid lines. This look is simple, clean and modern. The girds create a visual focus from top to bottom, making the space seem taller. The grid or stack pattern is easy to do, and more commonly used. This is a safe choice, but a classic one that goes well with any design style.

OFF-SET OR RUNNING BOND

Also commonly used, the off-set pattern is a great way to incorporate texture in your flooring. The tiles are set at one third off from the rows directly below and above. It creates a stunning diagonal effect. Great for most design styles.


OFF-SET FLOOR TILE PATTERN

VERTICAL STACK

The vertical stack can be used as a visual tool to create the illusions of a taller space if installed on walls, and longer if installed on the floors. If you are working with a small size room, this is a good looking pattern, and great option to enhance your space.
