Happy New Year! Is anyone still saying that? The year is well underway now and we are just a couple of days away from February…can you believe that? 2023 is already flying by! We’re excited to get started on some new projects and share more about some of our newest tile additions as well as some tried and proven options too. Designing your dream bathroom or kitchen is exciting but sometimes figuring out where to start can leave you stumped. We’re here to help with your tile selections. We’ve put together a list of our favorite looks and some Jeffrey Court tiles you can use.
Here are some of the tile looks we are loving right now…
Make it subway…but not subway.
Subway field tiles will always be classic, but maybe you’re looking for something a little different. Handcrafted field tiles in different sizes installed in herringbone or stacked patterns are a great way to go. A stacked pattern using Taffeta White is perfect for a more modern, clean look. Herringbone patterns are great for bringing in some visual interest and breaking away from tradition just a bit. Typhoon Blue is perfect for creating this look. Another great option is a picket tile if you’re looking for more than just a straight edge. The Suburbs Mosaic is a great option for this look – you get the look of a field tile with the convenience of installing a mosaic and not having to worry about placing each individual piece perfectly.
Taffeta White 3 in. x 12 in. (95373), Suburbs White 10 in. x 12.375 in.(13013), Typhoon Blue 3 in. x 18 in. (13056), Breezy Beige 3 in. x 12 in. (13036)
Distinct shapes…it doesn’t always have to be squared.
Tile is no longer only available in squared shapes, unique shapes and patterns now allow you to create wallpaper-like visuals with the convenience and longevity of tile. (It’s easier to clean and the kids can’t peel it off. We know they’ll try.) Use the Tea Party Mosaic to bring a whimsical floral pattern into your space or Parasol for a black and white umbrella-shaped pattern. Victorian Gem and Medieval Arabesque are other excellent options.
Victorian Gem White 9.125 in. x 11.25 in. (13019), Parasol White/Black 8.5in. x 8.625in.(13020), Medieval White/Grey 12.125 in. x 13 in. (13029), Tea Party White 13.125 in. x 14.625 in. (13033)
Black and white (and sometimes a little gray).
Black and white tile options are so versatile – they can be dressed up or down. They are great for creating dramatic installations that are the center of attention or can be more subtle and neutral and serve as a backdrop to your cabinets, hardware, and accessories. Jubilee is the perfect example of bold and dramatic, the gold metal accents add a flair of glamour. Checkmate is a classic neutral option in a checkered white and gray pattern that can work in so many different spaces.
Oxford White/Black 10.125 in. x 10.125 in. (13025), Turbine White/Grey 11.875 in. x 11.75 in. (13030), Checkmate White/Grey 11.875 in. x 11.875 in. (13028), Jubilee White/Black 11.875 in.x 9.375 in. (13032)
Go big for your home.
Large field tiles really stand out and help create seamless looks with minimal grout joints (hint, hint easier to clean and maintain). Ceramic options like Glossy Rapids and Winters Peak are also great for recreating natural stone looks at more affordable prices. Rustic options like Grande Gris Rustico and Grande Azulado Rustico add depth and dimension to spaces while creating a homey look and feel.
Grande Gris Rustico 10 in. x 20 in. (13064), Typhoon Beige 3 in. x 18 in. (13062), Grande Azulado Rustico 10 in. x 20 in. (13066), Winters Peak White 10 in. x 20 in. (97807), Morning Tide Gray 10 in. x 20 in. (97826)
