Playing with Patterns

When you shop for tiles and want to go crazy on the unique patterns that you see, the problem is which pattern goes well with another pattern? Tile shopping is also exciting especially when you’re decorating with lots of design elements. We have some tips on how you can choose best your pattern tiles and what to avoid.

1. Start with a neutral base:

To avoid overwhelming the space, it’s best to start with a neutral base. Choose a solid color tile for the majority of the space, such as a white or cream, and then add patterned tiles as accents.

2. Stick to a color palette:

Choose a color palette for your patterned tiles and stick to it. This will help create a cohesive look and prevent the space from looking too busy. For example, if you’re using blue and white patterned tiles, choose shades of blue and white for the solid color tiles as well.

3. Mix and match scales:

Mixing and matching different scales of patterns can add interest and depth to the space. For example, pair a large-scale floral pattern with a small-scale geometric pattern.

4. Use patterns in unexpected places:

Don’t limit patterns to just the floor or backsplash. Consider using patterned tiles on the walls, in shower niches, or even as a border around the bathtub.

5. Avoid clashing patterns:

While mixing and matching patterns is encouraged, it’s important to avoid patterns that clash. If you’re unsure if two patterns work well together, hold them up next to each other to see how they look before committing to installation.

6. Consider the style of the space:

The style of the space should also be considered when choosing patterned tiles. For example, if you have a modern space, consider using bold geometric patterns. If you have a more traditional space, consider using floral or damask patterns.

Overall, playing with patterns can be fun and exciting when decorating with tiles. By starting with a neutral base, sticking to a color palette, mixing and matching scales, using patterns in unexpected places, avoiding clashing patterns, and considering the style of the space, you can create a beautiful and cohesive look.
