What is Picket Tile?

It was inspired by classic hexagon tile, which has long been popular. It is very slim and elongates hexagon tiles for a unique, modern look. It is a larger shape and can be installed in three different patterns:

  • Braided. This is a fan favorite. It is an organic look that provides a soothing result and is great on floors or walls. If you choose a braided installation, you can have a darker grout highlight the pattern, or choose a slightly lighter colored grout for a softer look.
  • Straight horizontal installation. When this installation type is chosen, it is essentially treated as an option to subway tile. It can be installed in a horizontal, straight set that gives it a class twist yet modernizes that elegance. This is a great choice for both residential and commercial spaces.
  • Straight vertical installation. Similar to the option above, this is a great choice for areas with a lot of vertical space, or if you want to make a room or wall seem higher than it is. This is also a great choice if you want to have a focal point installed right in the middle of it.

These are the three main installation options but of course we can help you find the right choices for your specific needs.
