13 Tailored Tile Designs

Categories: Homeowner Tips | Posted: 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,

Feature Team Member- Becca Rogers

We sat down and had a chat with the fabulous Becca Rogers today.  She’s the newest member of our sales team and represents some exciting changes for us.  But we’ll get to that in a minute.

11892085_10204326523672809_245729406581719900_nThere are a few things you should know about Becca before we get to her position here.  She is an avid reader.  Any book will do, but cliché love stories and Harry Potter books are her niche.  When she’s not reading, you’ll likely find her coming to the rescue for some lucky pooch.  Like many in the office here, she has an open heart and loves her fur babies!  She’s a true DFW native who loves rooting for our Rangers, so Bark at the Park is basically the best thing ever for her (especially if she can swim there while reading the new Harry Potter book).  She shares these passions with her fiancé, Tyler, and stepson, Ryder.

We love her for all of these things, but we chose her for a couple of other passions.  Specifically, her love for customer service and for home building.  At her last workplace, Becca got a taste of 24/7 customer service. She loved it. She really enjoyed being available to participate in the exciting process alongside clients. Her passion for home-building comes from her experience as a child.  Her father was a home-builder, and she loved to visit the model homes and find out how things were made.  These fit well into our needs for a New Home Specialist.  She’s the friendly voice on the phone when you call in asking about a new home. We are always striving to be better, and this position is one way we make sure you have the best home-buying experience with us.

Until Next Time,
