Whether you’re choosing tile for a backsplash, shower, or kitchen floor, you’ll need to consider how you would like the tile installed. Depending on the size and shape of your tile, there may be several options for the layout pattern of the design.

Here at Floor Coverings International Shallotte, we have the expertise to help you achieve whatever tile pattern you want for your Southport home. Here are some popular options for local homeowners:

Brick Pattern

This is one of the most common tile patterns, especially when using rectangular tiles on a vertical surface (such as subway tile). In this pattern, each tile is placed so it starts at the center of the tile above or below it. This pattern is a great choice if you want a classic look using rectangular tiles.

Grid Pattern

Grid patterns are common for flooring designs, especially with square tiles. In this pattern, all the tiles are the same size and shape, and they are arranged parallel to each other so that they create a grid. Though grids are most frequently used with square tiles, you can also try this pattern with rectangular tiles for a very modern and clean look.

Herringbone Pattern

A herringbone pattern is made up of V-shaped rows with tiles placed at 45-degree angles. This pattern is often used in backsplashes, though it can look great in floors as well. The herringbone look is busier than brick or grid designs, so it’s a great choice if you want to bring more pattern into your space!

Versailles Pattern

The Versailles pattern uses square and rectangular tiles to create a repeating design. Since the tiles vary in size and shape, the pattern can look a bit like a puzzle. This pattern works particularly well for natural stone floor tiles, or other large tiles with slight variations in color and texture.
