There are so many options when it comes to tile layouts, here are just a few common ones:

  • Offset (½ or in ⅓’s)

  • Straight set (aka: stacked or grid pattern)

  • Herringbone

  • Chevron

  • Basket Weave

  • Soldier Course

Designer Tip: I highly suggest hiring a professional tile installer! You would not believe how many times I have seen homeowners in tears because they spent a fortune on their tile, only to have to rip it all out and start over because they tried to install the tile themselves without knowing what was best for their home. If you plan on installing the tile yourself make sure you use the correct thinset or mastic so that the tile doesn’t “slip” down the wall, and talk to a professional about your installation options.
