Tile is definitely one of my favorite things! Have you ever thought about all the different ways you can lay it?! I love adding tile allll the way up walls because it makes the room look so much taller! If you have a choice of whether to go with a little tile or more tile, you always go with more tile!! You also might’ve guessed that I love using tile in unique and interesting patterns! I feel like the more interesting, the better! This kitchen in the next picture was no exception!
Herringbone is a classic tile pattern, and using it in an extra skinny and long subway tile made it look more interesting and gave the room some visual height. Right when you walk in the room, your eyes are immediately draw up to the right hand corner of the cabinets and it makes the whole kitchen come to life! Take a look below 🙂
Herringbone again! Depending on how you look at this, it is either arrows going up or down. This bathroom was exceptional! The tile wraps the entire room from ceiling to floor. It made for a beautiful statement when walking into this space, and as a bonus, it’s easy to clean!
The sketcher, half-bond with a 4×4 tile is super basic and inexpensive, but it transforms spaces to look like luxury! It is a unique take on your traditional subway tile, and I think having the tile space going from ceiling to floor really made the vanity and those mirrors just pop right off the walls!
Talk about perfection…the picket marble tile! What a dramatic statement for this space! In this picture, you’ve got three different tiles happening, traditional brick stack subway tile with a beveled edge, picket style tile on the back wall, and a beautiful Carrara marble 2×2 floor. I think that the layers of texture are SO interesting here! It definitely made for a dramatic reveal in this space 🙂
This is a unique take on the basket weave. Traditionally, the basket weave are subway tiles 2×2, and we had a longer, skinnier tile that had a wavy, textured edge. It gave it a really fun, modern, grid like pattern. With the floor being a black and white checkerboard, I feel like it gave the room something special!
For this bathroom, we knew we wanted to keep costs down and knew we wanted lots of tile, but tile is not cheap! White subway tile was the obvious choice for the space because it’s inexpensive and high quality! But I wanted to do something with a more modern feeling, so we opted for the stack bond vertical set for this bathroom. I feel like it helped bring the eye up for such a small space and made the space feel taller and brighter. We used the same brick half bond, but laid it in vertical lines! Laying the tile this way kept it simple, but beautiful 🙂
