Designing with Tiles: 7 Pattern Ideas to Add Visual Interest to Your Kitchen

Have you ever thought about how the design of your kitchen can shape its atmosphere?

One element that frequently goes unnoticed is the impact of tile patterns.

Whether you love bold, geometric designs or something more understated, there's a tile pattern perfect for your kitchen. Here are seven unique tile patterns that can add visual interest to your kitchen: 

Stacked Tiles 

Stacked tiles give a clean, uncluttered look that's perfect for those of you who love a bit of minimalism. 

Because of their vertical alignment, they draw the eye upward, making your kitchen feel taller and more spacious.

** Stacked tiles are an excellent choice for smaller kitchens or rooms with low ceilings.

Subway Tiles

Subway tiles are incredibly versatile. Their simple, rectangular shape and classic design allow them to blend seamlessly with almost any kitchen style.

No matter how often you decide to change your kitchen decor, your subway tiles will always fit right in! Their long, horizontal lines can create the illusion of a wider space, making your kitchen appear larger.

**  Subway tiles are a timeless and adaptable choice for any kitchen renovation.
