Tile Patterns: Why We Love Them & You Should Too

Tile nerds, unite!

In case you missed it, we LOVE tile patterns! In fact, we’ve actually touched on the subject before with some of our favorite inspo from Pinterest. Today, we’re counting all of the reasons we love it so much.

Count along with us, will you?

Versatile and flexible

Whether it’s a backsplash, an accent wall, or an entire space’s flooring, tile patterns can be scaled to fit any design. There are a plethora of ways for designers to take it and maximize their budget.

Classic, reimagined

Tile patterns isn’t a new idea. In fact, some of the most beautiful, preserved places throughout history are pure examples of what it started out as. Greece, Italy, and Spain are just a few of the many destinations that offer time capsules in the form of patterned design.

Geometry is fun

Okay, so maybe math isn’t the best comparison, but we’re not talking about the stuff we used to learn about from a textbook! We’re talking about real, tangible geometry! Think about it. The shapes, angles, and dimensions of tile are all forms of geometry. If only they taught us this subject using tile patterns in high school. *sigh*

3D designs

We are living, breathing, and loving in a 3D world. Now, thanks to technology and innovative designers, we can have tile patterns to match! Tile that protrudes in certain areas is considered 3D, and we are all about it!

Infinite, custom options

This one has to be at or near the top of the list, for sure! With endless options, the sky is actually the limit when it comes to tile patterns. Using different colors, shapes, and sizes, anyone can have a tile that is one of one and completely customized.

Personality boost

We love simple spaces and clean designs, but using tile patterns is a surefire way to add personality to an idea. It could be as simple as adding a large format pattern to a kitchen floor, like you’ll see below.

Any project

We are all about inclusivity at Audrey Lane because we believe that every dreamer should have access to their dream design! So, the fact that patterned tile can fit any project [big or small] falls right in line with our values here! Helping designers on a large scale, commercial design is just as exciting as helping a residential client achieve their dream.
