1. High Variation Glaze

Create an organic color range with a high variation glaze. While some of our glaze colors have an overall even tone, others have the look of multiple colors based on the personality of the glaze color and our Tile Elves' brush strokes. This is the perfect option for someone who has a tough time picking color. It's subtle, natural, and stunning.

Learn more about the differences in our glazes with our blog Glaze 101: Our Guide to Understanding Glazes!

2. Geometric Design

Create a floor that catches the eye with a bold geometric design. We love using strong contrasting glaze colors for this concept to let the individual tile shapes pop! Bubbles are one of our favorite shapes, they have such a fun energy to them, making any color combination look cheery.

3. Bright & Bold 

The floor is often a second-thought in the design of a room, make it the star with a bright and bold color choice! We like using our bright blues and teals so it feels like you're walking on water with Moroccan Fish Scales.

5. Contrasting Wall & Floor Tile

A simple way to create visual interest is to contrast the tile shapes on the wall or counter with the floor. This mosaic floor tile idea is often used in a kitchen or bathroom where you need a lot of tile to cover the space. Here we see it in commercial application at a fabulous Oyster Bar. This easy design delivers a sophisticated look without any fancy customization.

This new trend involves carefully planning...and it's totally worth it! The textural contrast of shiny tile with the natural grain of wood is a swoon-worthy floor by anyone's standards. Read this blog about how to plan for this floor transition with one of our most recent tile to wood projects.
