This is one of the most popular types of tile available as they can be easily stacked alongside each other to create as little or as big of a space as possible.

A diamond tile pattern is a popular and fairly common type of tile design that provides a geometric layout. By turning standard tiles at a 45-degree angle, one can achieve diamond tile patterns, which is often nice on the eyes when compared to a boring straight-tiled design. Diamond pattern tile is available in many shapes and colors and is often used as a kitchen backsplash or a bathroom floor.

Rhomboid Tile

Rhomboid tile generally consists of a square or diamond-shaped tile pieces put together in a mosaic pattern. They often come in one, two, or three colors together. Many rhomboid styles are made from marble and are packaged together as sheets of a mosaic pattern to be placed on the floor or as a nice backsplash on the wall. They are very popular shapes for the kitchen or the shower. These shapes prove that there is a lot of versatility in keeping things classy.

If you’re looking for a rhomboid tile backsplash, this can add a significant geometric effect to your kitchen or bathroom. The rhomboid mosaic appears almost as if 3D blocks are emerging from the area, allowing the eyes to view something rich and full.

A hex tile bathroom is one that adds dimension and can also add a touch of color to the washroom.

Hexagon tile backsplashes are popular for kitchens, bathrooms, and even sitting room designs. You can create a variety of hexagon tile backsplash colors, with a variety of different materials available as well. Many backsplashes are made from marble, as it offers a natural variance in color and texture along the wall. Other materials are available as well that include ceramic and porcelain, which can be popular additions to any kind of backsplash. It’s even easy to purchase it in mosaic sheets.

Hexagon tiles can be mixed and matched to create a mosaic or even a kitchen backsplash. Also known as large hex tiles, they are often smooth and cool with leveled grout for a consistent texture.

Arabesque Tile & Arabesque Tile Backsplash

Arabesque tile has grown significantly in popularity over the years, and it can add a great deal of artistry and dimension to any bathroom, kitchen, or dining area. The ornate, foliate, tendril-like patterns can be pieced together to form a repeating mosaic of colors and beauty. Anything that intertwines with itself can be considered an arabesque tile, and it is very popular for white or solid colored arabesque tiles to adorn the walls of a kitchen.

Backsplashes are certainly making a comeback, and what better way to enhance and emphasize the classiness of your room than with a solid or neutral-toned arabesque backsplash? Arabesque tile is extremely versatile, and can be played around with until you find something that you love most. With grooves and embossments that make the texture unique, there’s a lot of room for fun while still keeping it traditional.

Arabesque Mosaic Tile

Many homeowners wonder if arabesque tile can work in a mosaic pattern. If you are working on an arabesque tile kitchen backsplash, or even some flooring, you can find mosaic sheets of arabesque polished tile in a variety of materials and colors. It is definitely possible, and has seen a rise in popularity over the past couple of years.

Beveled Arabesque Tile

Beveled arabesque takes an already unique edging and curves it upward, adding a 3D effect that many homeowners appreciate. This is a great way to elevate your backsplash or your tile wall and give it just that little pop of vibrancy. Gently beveled edges are the perfect way to add dimension to your tile design without going too overboard.

Lantern Tile

Similar to an ogee tile with hints of arabesque, the lantern tile mimics a very classical “lantern” shape. It can be beveled, similar to an arabesque tile, which gives it a uniqueness in shape and pattern. They are most commonly seen as lantern mosaic tiles, which are sold in sheets. Sometimes, they can come in contrasting colors or textures, adding even more dimension to a room. Lantern shaped tiles are making a comeback, and whether you want a lantern tile backsplash or a full kitchen while, it is definitely a worthwhile investment.

Ogee Tile or “Fish Scale” Tile

Often confused with an arabesque or Moroccan style, the ogee tile (or ogee drop) is a fun geometric shape that is also known as a “fish scale”. You have likely seen this style before in backsplashes, bathrooms, and possibly even colorful restaurants. An ogee itself is an “S-like” curve shape, which has Gothic origins. Ogee tiles can be pieced together in a fish scale row or can be mismatched to face each other or away from each other, creating some very unique and visually stunning styles.

The Best Tile Shapes and Patterns for Your Floors and Kitchens

There are certainly a lot of different tile shapes and patterns to take into consideration when shopping for your next tile floor or backsplash. Choosing the best kind of tile depends on your personal preference, as well as the existing style and aesthetics of the room. For example, you can choose between small mosaic tiles or oversized tiles to make a statement. Do you want porcelain, ceramic, or marble? Do you enjoy textures in your tiles, or do you want it to be as smooth as butter?

The answers to all of these questions can help you narrow down your choices and decide on the best kind of kitchen tile for your bathroom or kitchen. Octagon dot tiles are very popular for bathroom floors, while arabesque and lantern-shaped tiles can make quite the conversational backsplash. Shop around at your local design center to consider the different style, shape, color, and material options you have at your disposal.
