Tiles have always been essential in home design. This is most likely due to the versatility and durability of the material. Tile can virtually be laid throughout your entire house from living room to bedroom and from floor to ceiling. If you’ve been thinking about doing some remodeling to add some tile work to any part of your house, we’ve come up with a list of tile patterns and designs you can choose from.
We help a lot of our clients with the design process, and one of our favorites is coming up with patterns that match the style of the homes we’re remodeling. Here’s a list of some tile patterns you can use for remodeling.
Chevron Tile Pattern
A chevron is simply a V-shaped mark. Laying tile with a chevron pattern is basically V’s laid stacked on each other across a surface. There are many ways to achieve this look, and it can be highly personalized. You can use smaller tiles for a more elegant look or go bold with bigger V’s. You can also mix and match by layering different tile sizes. The chevron tile pattern will give your floors or walls a classic look with natural tones. You can also mix in colored tiles to achieve any desired design.
French Pattern Tile Layout
You’ve probably seen a layout of square and rectangular tiles before and thought how randomly placed everything seems to be. More than likely, you were looking at a French pattern layout (also known as Versailles layout), and it’s far from random.
The layout comprises of a number of tiles in four different tile sizes and can be used anywhere you want an interesting pattern on your floor. Just picture an old world-type flooring with natural stones such as travertine or marble. Interlocking squares and rectangles give the French pattern a mosaic feel. This tile layout is a definite classic and will give your space a timeless look.

This pattern has regained popularity recently due to a slur of home renovating TV shows praising its simplicity. It’s true–the subway tile pattern is all about clean lines. This pattern is typical in bathroom renovations and has the capability of completely modernizing a space as such by just the addition of the tiles. If you’re thinking straight lines with a subway tile pattern, think again. There are many ways to differentiate your subway tiles from the rest. For example, you can run them vertically instead of horizontally. We’ve even done diagonals with subway tiles. The results were stunning and still sleek.
