13 Tailored Tile Designs
August 24, 2016
I like pretty things especially when they're also shiny, so it shouldn't come to any surprise to you that I love tile patterns! I decided to round up some of my favorite tile designs, in no particular order. We have so many creative options to offer our home-buyers whether spacious kitchens or relaxing bathrooms!
I'm starting with this simple and calming bathroom. With the tub shelf option, this home kept the tile quiet and added a band to the shower. The results is a stunning retreat!
A shiny option for the kitchen backsplash! These subtle tiles have a beautiful sheen that contrasts with the cabinets, and accentuates the natural lighting in this home. They make your home feel unique and add a little sparkle to your everyday life.
I love that this home uses a band accent similar to the ones we normally see in the shower. In this case, the horizontal accent tile provides contrast and interest where the tile meets the wall.
Many people choose to match the tub to the shower in their home, but this went a little out of the box. I love the balance between the intricate bathtub border, and the matching but more understated shower walls. If you look closely, you'll see the the bathtub border as an accent in the shower!
Sometimes, simplicity is knowing when and how to repeat an idea. In this bathroom, the shower mimics the tile accents of the bathtub, but adds a pencil tile border to the accent. It's a simple detail in this bathroom that adds dimensional significance.
The vertical accent in this shower adds some eye-lifting drama to the room. They tied it in with the tub, and used the upward motion to draw your eyes to the vaulted ceiling.
I love this one because the tile banding here is very different from what most people use. The tiles are larger than your typical mosaic, and are mixed up in three different sizes.
The tile used in this kitchen is 6"x 6" with metallic inserts for accents. While this style of laying out the tile is fairly common, the size is smaller and creates a totally new look.
This backsplash uses similar methods to the one above, but features a more common tile size. They created excitement by placing the tiles in what is called a 'clipped corner' arrangement. The bronze inserts in this style match the cabinets and really shine.
This tub splash is not often used outside of accent pieces. I love the way these guys stepped out of the box and made a beautiful mosaic with this tile style.
Most people are familiar with the shiny white subway tiles, but this tumbled stone is available in multiple colors and shades. I love the way that this pattern pulls different colors from the other accessories in the kitchen, while remaining simple and timeless.
The backsplash in this kitchen is interesting to me because it uses smaller tiles in a similar layout to the tumbled stone above. The smaller patterns merge to create a whole new feel.
I saved this beauty for last because it combines some of my favorite features for a look that is captivating, but simple. It all starts with our simple tumbled stone set at different angles above and below the pencil tile. The slight variation in color matches the granite and creates just the right amount of drama.
Until Next Time,
