Stripes All Around: Incorporating a Classic Pattern Using Tile


In the dynamic world of design, one trend that’s capturing attention in 2024 is the use of stripes to enliven spaces. Whether your aesthetic leans towards timeless elegance or bold modernity, the versatility of stripes in terms of scale and color makes them a standout pattern choice. In this article, discover how you can leverage the power of stripes using tile to elevate your next design project.

Exude Timeless Elegance

While referred as a trend, the striped pattern has a timeless appeal that boasts a rich history spanning back centuries. When translated into tiles, this classic pattern has the power to infuses sophistication to any space. Opting for neutral stones, like black and white, creates a timeless aesthetic reminiscent of old-world charm, perfect for spaces such as bathrooms and kitchens. Our Kaleidoscope Stripe marble mosaic is a perfect example of this, combining both Calacatta and Tulip Black marbles in a stripe orientation of varying thicknesses on a meshed back sheet – making the application of a striped layout easy and seamless.

Make a Bold Statement

For those who crave boldness and drama in their interiors, striped tiles can be used in vibrant or contrasting colors to make a striking statement. Experiment with bold colors such as navy blue or emerald green to infuse energy into your space. Whether creating an accent wall in a shower, or bringing a focal point in a room, bold striped tiles demand attention and instantly add visual interest into any space. Let the tiles take the spotlight by pairing with sleek, minimalist décor or mix and match patterns for a maximalist aesthetic.

Illusion of Space

A great advantage to using tiles in a striped design, is the ability to create an illusion of space. Horizontal stripes can create the illusion of widening narrow rooms, making the impression of a room to appear more expansive and airier. Conversely, vertical stripes can elongate walls, adding height to low-ceilinged spaces. Strategically laying striped tiles can manipulate the perception of space and transform the smallest of rooms into open, welcoming areas.

A Pattern with Ultimate Versatility

From bathroom floors to accent shower walls to bar backsplashes, striped tile layouts lend themselves to a myriad of applications. Use a striped design to create interest in transitional areas like mudrooms or lobby floors or add a pop of personality to unexpected areas such as stair risers or fireplace surrounds. With the versatility of this classic pattern, striped tiles offer endless design opportunities to cater to almost any style.
