A lot of little girls go through a horse phase. I am currently in a tile phase. Right now I spend so much time thinking about and looking at tiles that I could write a whole different blog and call it Tile Therapy. (You think I'm kidding.) On my radar right now: tiles in unusual, intriguing new shapes. Sure, you're all familiar with subway tile and square tile and penny tile and hex tile and maybe even fish scale tile, but there's so much more out there. So much. Here are ten badass tile shapes you probably didn't know about.

Fireclay Tile also makes a picket tile, but theirs has the intriguing property of being the same dimension on every side, which means it can be arranged in this 'braid pattern as well as the more traditional one pictured above.
