1. Stacked horizontal
The orderly symmetrical grid of this pattern makes it well suited to minimal, contemporary homes. Choose a matching grout so the pattern all but disappears.
2. Stacked vertical
Often seen in European homes and commercial spaces, stacked vertical tiles have a decidedly urban look about them.
3. Offset brick
Offset brick, sometimes referred to as running bond, is the most common subway-tile pattern. A contrasting grout makes this style more edgy and industrial in feel.
4. Offset brick vertical
If you love the look of the traditional offset pattern but want something a little different, run the tiles vertically. It works especially well for tall expanses.
This pattern is often used for flooring, but it looks equally good on a wall. If you want to emphasize the graphic look of this pattern, use a contrasting grout.
6. Diagonal herringbone
Shifting a standard herringbone diagonally gives this pattern a whole new look. Try it on a full wall where you have the space to let it shine.
Rectilinear to the core. If you love rectangles, this is the look for you. Alternating groups of three tiles make up this pattern.
Dynamic and exciting, this whirlwind pattern will bring a wall to life. For this design you will need a tile cutter to cut the centre tile, which is half the width of a regular tile.
