The Top 5 Natural Stone Tile Patterns

May 30, 2012

Whether you are looking to honor a classic tradition or tap into your creative side, natural stone tile lends itself to countless design options. To make it easier for his clients to determine their tile style, interior designer Mark Hermogeno narrows down the most popular tile patterns into five main categories. 

1. Geometric: This includes the simple yet every-popular square grid pattern that never goes out of style. A more modern take on this pattern is the use of rectangular stone tiles on walls and floors. A combination of colors can employed to a grid pattern to achieve an intriguing palette or to add accents.
