Below are a few fun patterns you can try in your own home!
Square - To achieve this look, place tiles in uniform rows and columns throughout your room.
Offset - To achieve this look, slightly move each alternating row to one side so that they are offset, similar to bricks on a wall.
Diagonal - To achieve this look, flip square tiles on their side to make diamond shapes. Piece the tiles together for a pointed, precise look.
Checkerboard - To achieve this look, follow the same rules for a diagonal design but choose alternating colors.
Diagonal with Dots - To achieve this look, add circular or other shaped insets into your diagonal design. Try hand painted mosaic tile insets for a special statement.
Tile continues to be a popular residential option for kitchens, bathrooms, and entryways because of their durability and easy maintenance. Tile is naturally durable and is resistant to moisture, heat, and overall wear. Tile is also versatile in terms of style and comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, patterns, colors and more. Most tiles feature a slip resistant surface, which is great for bathrooms. Dense tiles like porcelain are less susceptible to moisture are less likely to crack. The durability of tile also plays a role, because they resist wear and fade from frequent use.
Unlike wallpaper and paint, backsplash tiles do not peel or fade over time because of humidity. With tile, you can choose from different patterns or create a picture on your wall, with backsplash tile the possibilities are nearly limitless. Backsplash tiles can come pre-assembled with a mesh backing, or can come in individual tile, it depends on how much work you want to put into your bathroom update.
