Can’t decide on which tile layout looks best for your kitchen or bathroom? Here’s some idea we came up with to help guide you.
Brick, stacked, mosaic, and more — get to know the most popular tile layouts and see which one works best for your home.
Brick is the classic layout for a subway tile design. In a brick pattern, each row of tiles is typically offset by half a tile width, which results in long, horizontal lines that can subtly widen a room. This look can be used virtually in any space. A brick layout can be paired easily with gray grout.
Now that’s a bathroom. Love the combination of marble tiles AND subway tiles. #black #white #tiles #tiling #tiledfloor #flooring #marble #subwaytiles #standalonetub #interior #interiors #instadesign #instainterior #interiordesign #interiorstyling #monochrome #instaarchitecture #architecture #design #decor

A vertical tile layout draws the eye upward. This type of design is excellent for visually lifting the ceiling height in small spaces, such as a compact bathroom or kitchen.

This design is the simplest layout with its stacked subway tile. This results in a modern look that works well with clean shapes and crisp angles. Also, adding different grout can change the look and brighten it up the space.

Mosaic tile is most common in accent areas, because it requires more grout. They also tend to take in more moisture, which could be an issue with mildew-prone bathrooms.

Mosaic on tile bathroom floors is beneficial, because it helps create a less-slippery surface by adding more grout.
