Check out some custom tile design ideas that will set your home apart.
Most Popular Pattern: Subway
Inspired by the rectangular, white tiles in New York City subway stations, subway tiles are incredibly popular. The classic running bond style is what you’ll see most often—it imitates brickwork and offers a cohesive and relaxing aesthetic.
While subway tile is considered a traditional pattern, you can always add your own flavor with bold colors, contrasting grout, and rich tile textures.
A Utah Favorite: Hexagon
With Utah’s reputation as the “Beehive State,” it’s no wonder that the honeycomb, or hexagon, tile pattern is a popular choice here in the Salt Lake and Utah counties. This playful shape is six-sided and offers an edge, geometric look.
Popular in bathrooms and kitchens, the hexagon tile adds depth and dimension. Choose small, medium, or large tiles to enhance your space.
Sophisticated and Timeless: Scallop
The fan-shaped scallop tile is an elegant and sophisticated option for your home. The stunning curves give your space movement and drama. The resurgence of “Modern Art Deco” means you can find this tile in a wide range of colors and textures from marble to terra cotta—and even concrete.
Originating in Morocco, the scallop tile gives a beautiful Mediterranean vibe to your space, perfect for the world traveler and enthusiast.
Classically European: Herringbone
The gorgeous herringbone pattern dates all the way back to the Roman Empire. The interlocking pattern was used in roadways to absorb compression. In fact, it’s so stable and durable, those Roman roads are still used today in some parts of the world.
However, it was during the 1600s in France that herringbone became a status symbol for the elite. Today, parquet wood floors are a mainstay for Parisian style. If you’re looking to add a degree of sophistication to your home, herringbone is an excellent choice.
The Essence of Modern: Vertical Stack
Vertical stack tiles are becoming increasingly popular. The clean and modern look keeps the space feeling unique, but not overly busy. And if you have lower ceilings, this pattern can also make your room seem taller.
If you want a tile pattern that will catch the eye, the vertical stack is a great option. And because the design is relatively simple, it is a safe design choice for all personalities.
