Herringbone Tile PatternA pattern that creates waves of visual movement, the herringbone pattern is made from a 2:1 tile ratio. Turn the design shown 45-degrees and it becomes a chevron pattern. Offset Tile PatternThe most popular subway pattern — the offset joint layout — offers a timeless look for almost any style. With each joint centered over the tile below, this pattern resembles classic brickwork. Vary the look by installing the tiles vertically. Offset 1/3 Tile PatternA variation of the offset joint, the offset 1/3 pattern creates a stair-step pattern with each joint offset 1/3 from the row of tiles below it. Rotate the pattern to run tiles vertically for the illusion of height. Crosshatch Tile PatternThe crosshatch pattern is a nod to a basket-weave tile pattern, with pairs installed vertically next to pairs installed horizontally. When viewed from afar, the sections resemble a tic-tac-toe board. Straight Set Tile PatternThe simplest of tile patterns, the straight set pattern offers a more contemporary, linear look. Installed vertically or horizontally, the tile lines make your space feel taller or wider.

To liven up a basic backsplash, consider a beveled tile. “Having the tile done this way added a lot of dimension to the walls,” explains designer Tobi Farley. “It adds texture to the neutral kitchen, and the varying shades of bisque and sand complement the Roman shade perfectly. I love working with tile in new and different ways – it can really add to a design!”
