Various patterns are created using the elements of shape and colour to create repeating designs that will add interest and a sense of drama to any design scheme.

Do Pattern Tiles Make a Room Look Smaller?
Tile patterns on smaller sized tiles will add a strong sense of character in a room, being quite a strong design element. As such, it is important to use these types of busier tiles strategically in the space so as to avoid creating a visually cluttered look. Balance out intricate tile patterns with solid colours and neutral tones that will complement your tile’s pattern while creating a sense of harmony in your design scheme. This techniques will ensure the space does not feel any smaller and your overall design is easier on the eye, allowing you to experiment with pattern tiles and a variety of colours when creating your own unique look.
Which Tile Pattern Makes a Room Look Bigger?
If your goal is to create the illusion of a larger looking room with pattern tiles, opt for a large scale pattern rather than a more intricate or ornate, smaller style. Colour block tile patterns are often a popular choice for these types of applications as they create a modern aesthetic. Complement your pattern tiles with a selection of solid colours and modern textures to create a sleek and minimal style that is easy on the eye while still incorporating a range of patterns.
Placing a Tile Pattern: Where to Start your Tile Pattern
When tiling a wall or floor using pattern tiles, the best way to create a symmetrical and balanced look is to start the pattern on the central point of the area being tiled. Performing a ‘dry lay’ prior to laying is a beneficial precaution to take in order to ensure the very best results; simply select your tiles from your delivered tile order and place them on a protective sheet in the order you wish to lay them in. This process will allow you to experiment with the pattern’s final placement on your floor or wall prior to actually laying the tiles, ensuring a well-balanced look is achieved.
Are Pattern Tiles Expensive?
This depends on the tile’s material and design. You will find pattern tiles available in a range of different price points with options available in porcelain tiles, ceramic tiles, natural stone tiles as well as concrete tiles. In general, porcelain tiles will offer a more cost effective solution in comparison to natural stones or concrete. It is also important to keep in mind that the process of laying pattern tiles is more labour intensive which in turn may increase the cost of installation.
How to Use Pattern Tiles in the Home
Pattern tiles can be used throughout your home’s interior and exterior spaces to add a warm and welcoming finishing touch to your overall design scheme. Traditional styled pattern tiles that feature a repeating motif are most often included in classically styled homes, being a popular choice as a bathroom tile, kitchen tile or an outdoor tile solution for the patio or verandah. You will notice these tiles being used when revamping period style homes as they offer a nod to the past, combining traditional designs with modern materials.
