The Most Popular Tile Patterns in London: A Guide for Designers

Designing and supplying mosaic schemes is a specialty of many professionals. With more than 70 pages of the most popular designs, including hundreds of inspiring designs, it's easy to find something that suits your needs. One of the most common designs for outdoor locations is the classic black and white checkerboard pattern. This design features 2-inch square tiles, bordered by diagonally arranged squares with a smooth black border on each side.

This pattern adds a touch of classic elegance to any outdoor space. Subway tiles are also popular, especially in shades of green that look like a misty forest. This pattern works best with flat tiles or those with a matte finish, rather than beveled tiles. Bathroom tiles can also be used to create a cinematic makeover, from white floor tiles combined with colorful grout to richly patterned tiles in unexpected configurations.

Even the simplest white, square tiles can look good in a bathroom, but you can upgrade even the smallest vanities with unexpected tiles. For example, you could pair rich pastel paint with marble tiles that complement the tone.

Movement in Veined Tiles

When people talk about movement in veined tiles, they don't usually mean movement in the tile pattern itself, but they should. A great way to add some dynamism to your design is to mix seemingly unrelated artistic tile designs into something extraordinary. Designer Avery Cox is an expert at this technique and has used marble and subway tiles to create many different basket weaving patterns depending on the number of tiles used in each “block”.

Vintage Style Tiles

If you're looking for a more vintage style, New York designer Crystal Sinclair installed black Clé tiles on three-quarters of the bathroom wall in this building.

Houston designer Avery Cox also created an intense vintage style with handmade New Ravenna tiles placed in a splash protector or as shower tiles. Designing and supplying mosaic schemes is an art form that requires creativity and skill. With so many options available, it's easy to find something that suits your needs. From classic black and white checkerboard patterns, to subway tiles in shades of green that look like a misty forest, to vintage style handmade New Ravenna tiles - there are endless possibilities for creating beautiful tile designs.
