Bold Geometric Floor Tile

By Kate Riley July 17, 2017

Hello my lovely friends, I hope you enjoyed your weekend! I was looking back through comments on the blog and realized oh no, I never responded to several requests to round up geometric floor tiles as an alternative to the tile I used in my hall bathroom makeover. The geometric tile in that space adds such a wow factor, I really love it, but like many of you I was disappointed to learn that it was discontinued. :(



So… to achieve a similar look with a bold geometric tile, I rounded up a few alternatives to get the look! Here are a few inspiration images with links to those tiles, and also a grouping of available geometric patterned tiles I would use to make a dramatic statement on the floor.



heart pattern


diamond pattern


marble square repeat


1. black and white diamond  2. blue geo (custom colors available)  3. grey diamond 

4. cadiz diamond (custom colors available)  5. blue quatro   6.  star grey  

7. elegance luxe  8. blue diamond   9. geometrica   10.  tunis


The encaustic cement tile look is still going strong and you can find many affordable cement look tiles in a less expensive porcelain. These also make such an impact on a floor, whether it’s a patio, sunroom, or bathroom. If you desire a look that includes the swirl motifs found in encaustic cement tile, see this post on getting the cement tile look for less.



Weekend Reading

Hello everyone! How was your week? Mine was jam packed with activity, I returned from another successful trip to Las Vegas where I’m wrapping up the details on the kitchen and bathroom remodels. I’m headed back there in a few weeks to check on the progress and cannot wait to share these spaces with you once they’re complete. Back home in California, I finished a really cool outdoor trellis project, I’ll be sharing that with you all next week, and I’m in the middle of a powder room makeover that I hope to post about as soon as it’s done.

Next week I fly out to Atlanta for the Haven Conference, it’s been many years since I attended so I’m excited to mix and mingle with all of the DIY and design bloggers in attendance, it will be inspiring I’m sure! Favorite links from around the web below!
