Design Trends: Tiled Office Spaces

By Kali |


From your home office to staff kitchens there are plenty of opportunities for tile in the work place. Office spaces are only getting more stylish and tile is a perfect way to add a pop of color or pattern (or both!) to infuse a bit of energy into the work day (and keep those creative juices flowing). We're sharing our favorite ways to work tile into your office below:  

A little bit goes a long way: 
Looking for something to brighten your office space? A bit of tile can go a long way, whether it's in a staff kitchen, bathroom floor or accent wall. 

If you have a kitchen with an island, tiling the face can add a great focal point. Take inspiration from Light Lab's triangle installations; that small swatch of pattern has a lot of impact.

Light Lab also has a bathroom floor that features a bold triangle pattern (perfect for encouraging snapssharing during events). 

Design tip: If you're working on a commercial office space, go for our Recycled Clay Body for all of your flooring needs. More on that here

Add Some Movement:
A lot of offices have staff kitchens these days, so why not make them visually compelling too? Choose one of our colors with variation to add texture and movement to your space. 

The Goop office and test kitchen went floor to ceiling with 4x8 tiles in custom neutral color.

Highlight a classic tile shape, like the hexagon, by choosing a saturated hue and a contrasting grout color, as they did in the Wit & Delight studio kitchen:

Make a Statement: 
An office space allows you to really go for it in a way you might not in a residential one. Why not go for bright colors and bold patterns if it suits the setting? 

Salesforce offices across the world feature backsplashes that pay homage to the city that their located in. The one below depicts the San Francisco skyline:

Home Office:
Working on your home office? Consider tile as a backdrop.

This home office is a continuation off a kitchen that is tiled in the same material.
