Design Trends: Tiling with Triangles

Design Trends: Tiling with Triangles

Our creative director, Jamie Chappell, said, "This will be the year of the triangle" and her words rang true. We added four triangle sizes to our offering earlier this year and it has been a treat to see this shape become such a popular choice. We're sharing a few triangle tile installations below, but if you want more design inspiration, head to our Pinterest Board dedicated to this shape. 

Right Triangles:
We make three size of our Right Triangle (3", 4" and 6"). From bathroom floors to kitchen backsplashes, this shape makes for a dynamic tile installation. 

You can make triangle tiles really pop by choosing a contrasting grout, as you can see from Light Lab's tiled kitchen island:

A take on classic black and white checkered tile, Light Lab went for triangle tiles on their bathroom floor:

Looking to create a bold tiled accent wall? Triangles might be the ticket. From a structured pattern, to something a bit more randomized (like the install below), you're guaranteed a result that will get attention.

We're huge fans of the triangle bathroom below. The blend of three similar tones allows for the randomized pattern to shine, but still has a soothing effect:

If you really want to show of a triangle tile pattern, choose a few contrasting colors:

Scalene Triangle: 
We like the idea of treating this triangle much like you would subway tile. These triangles look great set vertically, horizontally and in an offset pattern too.

Can you imagine how beautiful a shower wall would be decked out in vertically offset Scalene Triangles, in a deep blue like Azul? We can!
