Tiles have always been available in classic geometric shapes: the proverbial rectangle subway tile, hexagon tile (think black-and-white bathroom floors), Moroccan arabesques. Yet a modern, almost whimsical take on shapes is championing design trends lately — one that embraces the shape, highlights it, sometimes even basing the entire design around the shape of the tile.

Say goodbye to laying tiles side-by-side and end-to-end in predictable, even rows. Instead, tiles are set in creative, eye-pleasing patterns. Like rectangles of varying sizes fitting together like a puzzle. Triangles of complementary color schemes set in a random pattern, or aligned to form traditional shapes like a square or rectangle. Diamond-shaped tiles placed at different angles to form a backdrop of flowers or cubes or some other mesmerizing image. These geometric tile designs offer a  more interesting, elevated look.

The effect of geometric tiles can be bold or more subtle depending on your style. A white tile with hexagon shapes is more subtle than a dark green triangle patterned tile. With their eye-catching layout, they still become the room’s statement piece. This allows the rest of the decor to remain neutral and muted.

Geometric Tile Backsplash

Our sophisticated Remington polished glass tile collection brings geometric tiles to another level. From the surface, the tiles — either brick-shaped or triangular — appear perfectly flat; yet the interior of each one has a beveled edge. This seemingly small detail catches the light, which adds a depth and dimension that makes the appearance of an optical illusion. This unique look is available in four colorways (bronze, sepia, midnight, and slate).

The Remington Midnight Triangles is a popular choice for kitchen backsplashes. When adding a bold design like this to your kitchen, it’s important to take the room’s color scheme and the design of the countertops into account so there aren’t too many bold pieces competing.

It’s no surprise that geometric designs like our Remington tiles are especially popular among younger buyers. This avant-garde approach to tile truly updates these timeless designs for the current millennium.

Geometric Floor Tiles

What makes a space more interesting than some geometric tiles on the floor? They not only create a striking design that will keep the eyes moving, but they also add a sense of depth. Take for instance large, waterjet tiles that have over-sized patterns. They fill a space with a sense of luxury and style.

Retro Designs

Geometric floor tile can create retro-inspired themes; think black and white pieces. There are twists on classic penny rounds, like hexagon-shaped ones, which when added into a space adds a vintage touch.

Natural Stone Options

Nothing beats the fusion of natural stone with a stand-out geometric pattern. It’s the best way to create a dazzling floor space. Think of a deep, nero marquina marble with a through-body brass inlay — both upscale and elegant.

If you’re wanting to add some pattern and depth to your space, browse through our geometric tile patterns and find the perfect tile to make your room pop. Whether you want ceramic tiles, mosaic, glass or stone, we’ve got a wide selection of materials to choose from.
