In addition to ceramic tile styles, manufacturers also offer decorative inserts, medallions and mosaics that are used to create intricate patterns and beautiful borders.
Tile size 2”x2” and smaller are usually referred to as mosaics and are often used with different colors to create a pattern or decorative inset.
Some of these smaller tiles also come in different shapes, such as hexagon, so feel free to let your imagination run free.
Patterned borders made up of different size tiles or different colors can create beautiful looks.
Simple variations in color, shape or size can be patterned within a room, or across several adjoining rooms.
When creating a pattern with different tiles, you should know that the more prominent tile that is throughout the largest areas is called the “field tile”.
