What do we mean by "Tile Pattern"?

 

Generally, a pattern refers to a repeated occurrence. Similarly, a tile pattern refers to the shapes within each tiles surface, and the shapes that extend from one tile surface to the next, creating a random or repetitive pattern. In most tile patterns, tiles of the same shape and size are arranged to achieve a continuous pattern. Yet, in some rare cases, the pattern is attained by arranging tiles of different shapes and sizes across a surface. In any case, the tile pattern should be chosen to align with the overall interior design theme, other elements in the space - like furniture, fixtures and colors - and the performance and cleanability requirements for the surface.

  

Why Do Tile Patterns Matter?

 

Imagine a home with concrete flooring and unpainted walls. Would you consider this a stylish or elegant interior? Probably not. When you think of stylish interior spaced, you probably picture various colors, materials and patterns working together to achieve a cohesive and harmonious theme. 

 

To achieve such a cohesive and harmonious design theme, in interior or exterior spaces, you need to combine various materials, colors, textures, and more. When it comes to the floor surfaces and wall surfaces in these spaces, tile is often utilized for both aesthetic and performance driven considerations. The tile patterns, materials, colors and finishes chosen then becomes an integral component of the overall design theme. 

  

Tile patterns help you to achieve the desired visual appeal and tie together the other elements of the interior or exterior space. Tile patterns can either subtly accent a wall or floor, or they can make the wall or floor the focal point of the entire room. For instance, geometric tile patterns add eye-catching visual interest to the surface, while large format tiles can mask floors and walls in a soft subtle 'blanket'. Therefore, tile patterns are among the most crucial selection factors in achieving a cohesive design theme.
