D|A Design Guide to Tile Patterns

So, tile and grout is picked out for you project…what’s next? The tile pattern is an important part of the design decision and can change the mood of the room. Here’s our guide to the different tile patterns and some examples of our past work to go along.

1. Brick Lay
Brick lay is the most traditional out of the tile patterns and will never go out of style. It is offset and layered, just like you would see the brick on the exterior of a building. You can never go wrong with the brick lay pattern, as seen in our Interior Design English Manor project, Midway, UT and our Interior Design Comstock project, Scottsdale, AZ.

2. Stacked
Stacked tile gives a uniform feel to the space, most often used in showers, but can be used anywhere. Stacked tile looks great in modern and mid-century modern homes, either vertical or horizontal. A vertical stack can also be separated out with horizontal tiles between rows to create a more distinguished pattern, as seen in our Interior Design English Manor project, Midway, UT.

3. Herringbone
Herringbone pattern can be fun and playful but also very sophisticated, totally dependent on the color and style of tile chosen. The zigzag pattern can turn your shower walls or your mudroom floor into an elevated piece of art! Our Interior Design West Wing and Designer Revealed projects, Paradise Valley, AZ showcase the herringbone pattern perfectly!

4. Checkerboard
This is a classic pattern, where two different colors of tile squares are laid alternating to create the checkerboard pattern. This is most often seen on the floor, as seen in our kitchenette in our Interior Design English Manor project, Midway, UT.
