The Best and Boldest Patterned Tile Before and Afters We Saw This Year
Just because flooring goes underfoot doesn’t mean it needs to be an afterthought. Beautiful patterned tile floors have been everywhere in bathrooms and kitchens this year—especially in the colors black and white. Steal the look from the seven seriously inspirational before and afters below… and lest you think tile is for kitchens and baths only, all of these picks would look great in a laundry room or entryway, too. (Psst: To see the afters, just swipe left.)
Black and white mosaic tile… with a twist
You’ve seen mosaic tiles before, but this version is a stunner. This wow-worthy black and white mosaic tile kitchen flooring was custom made by Daltile. You could get the look in your own home by purchasing sheets of mosaic tile in a few different colors, then popping them out and moving them around to create your own custom pattern. Painstaking? Yes. Worth it? Also yes.

Hex tile, oversized
The showpiece of this petite bathroom is its oversized hex-patterned marble tile floor, which extends into the shower. “We absolutely love the way the hexagon floor tile turned out—it’s bold without being overwhelming in a small space, and it gives the room an upscale sort of feel,” blogger Faith Towers Provencher of Design Fixation says. You can find the same tile at The Builder Depot.
