When completing a kitchen & bath remodel, deciding on what tile to use may seem trivial. Or you may be overwhelmed with all of the colors, shapes, and sizes to choose from.  No matter how you feel about the decision, just know that tile can completely make the look of the space. You can choose to go subtle and understated or make a bold statement. The sky’s the limit when it comes to the design. Here are some tile design ideas you may want to consider for your space.


The basketweave pattern has been around for ages, but recently there has been a resurgence of this tile pattern. It is a nice way to mix modern and vintage in one space. The modern fixtures coordinate nicely with a tile that reflects the time period of the home.


White subway tile has long been a popular choice in kitchens. But setting the tile in a herringbone pattern with minimal grout is a way to take subway tile from standard and boring to modern and artistic. For added drama, continue the tile from the countertops all of the way up to the ceiling.

Mermaid Tile

Don’t be afraid to show your whimsical side. This very refreshing, aquatic-like tile can instantly put a splash of beach into your bathroom. The repeating pattern in ocean blue provides great visual interest. Pull the look together with glitter grout and your bathroom will shine!

Textured Tile

One of our favorite new trends in tile is dimensional tile. Tile that protrudes from the wall gives the space added texture and visual interest. The neutral wavy lines on the tile above gives the bathroom a modern, rustic feel. The particular tile comes in straw, fabric and leather options and a variety of colors.

Hexagon Tile

Why stick with boring square tile, when you can make a statement with oversized hexagon-shaped tile! For this bathroom, our designers chose a neutral palette of beiges and browns. Three tile patterns (mosaic floor tile, neutral horizontal wall tiles, and taupe hexagon accent tiles) complement each other for a successful room design.
