White tile in geometric shapes are seamless way to incorporate pattern into your interior design. We’re seeing a lot of plays on the classic hexagon tile, such as oversized proportions like the backsplash above.

If you’re a fan of the midcentury style, consider using Elongated Diamond Tile and arranging them into Escher-inspired hexagons for a new take on this design throwback.

Calcite is more than just a blank slate--its matte finish lends itself to a modern look, giving even our most timeless designs a fresh perspective.

Never underestimate rectangles. Despite their classic shape, white rectangle tile has undeniable staying power that can outlast any season and trend. Calcite can help to get a chic matte finish that allows other design elements in your space to shine through.

Rectangles can also be arranged beyond the typical offset or straight set pattern. A diagonal herringbone pattern feels both dynamic and familiar, energizing even the most minimalist of spaces.

At the end of the day, you can never go wrong with white subway tile. This kitchen curates a variety of textures against a clean palette, its matte white backsplash tying it all together.
