Keep reading as we map out the different popular tile patterns for your home.

  1. The Straight Lay Pattern

Imagine tiles aligned perfectly in a straight line. This simple yet elegant layout, known as the Straight Lay, screams sophistication. Whether you’re opting for an intricate design or a minimalist approach, this pattern, with its straight grout lines, can channel the gaze towards the room’s highlight and portray a simple elegance.

  1. The Diagonal Tile Pattern

Add a sprinkle of pizzazz by taking that straight lay and giving it a 45-degree twirl. That will create the Diagonal pattern for you. This nifty trick, apart from being visually appealing, can expand the horizons of a cozy space, making it seem roomier.

  1. Running Bond

If brick walls were translated to floors, the Running Bond would be it! Perfectly staggered like an expertly laid brick wall, this pattern can be your secret weapon to mask those minor imperfections or uneven floors. Why? Our eyes are tricked into seeing the entire mosaic rather than individual tiles. This is an especially god pattern for anyone going the DIY route as it is easiest to lay and covers slight imperfections.

  1. Checkerboard Tile

Iconic and timeless. The Checkerboard pattern is not just about black and white – it’s about making a statement. While this design can be captivating, remember, balance is key. Pair it with simple decor to keep its elegance intact. Considering checkerboard for a room with rich designs? But as a word of caution, too many patterns can be visually distracting so stick to one.
