#2 Classic Basketweave

If you want a look that is more classic, you can opt for basketweave tiles. They come in gold tones for the hole like Calacatta Jerusalem or even Ming Green for weave.

 You can get basketweave tiles with brown, black, white, and blue too. Whichever colors you choose, they are an excellent choice for entryways and sitting areas. This design using Cielo and Blue Bahia basketweave tiles created a rug for a bathroom spa area.

The Fusione collection has some pretty spectacular modern tiles that look like hand-chopped mosaics. They can be used in any modern design to add a splash of color to a feature wall, a floor, or even around a hearth. Imagine this tile in an entry way. If you prefer a greener tone, try the Saga.

#4 Floral or Botanical Tiles

What is more colorful than flowers? There are entire collections that focus on florals and botanicals. They add an instant pop of color and bring nature indoors. The Bloomfield mosaic tile uses cherry blossoms to bring in that spot of color to a bathroom wall. Don't be shy about using reds or oranges too, like in the Zurro tile from the Luxe collection. They are perfect with a floral motif. Florals can be put up as permanent framed works of art, like this giant floral from the in the bathtub background.

#5 Diamond Checkers

These are also sometimes called diagonal grid tiles. The diamond shapes are laid in a diagonal pattern and can include more than one color. Here is a diamond checker tile with just the right dash of color, a perfect addition for a living room or bathroom floor. The Beret tile offers a darker palette with browns in various tones. These aren't quite checkerboards because the colors aren't evenly spaced, but that makes the design even more exciting in the end.

#6 Grid Tiles

A simple black and white grid can offer a checkerboard pattern. However, if you want something less boring, why not add some color to the same grid tile design? Checkerboard tile can be made with any assortment of colors, and in a variety of shapes like the picture below. When put grid tiles on a bathroom floor they look like ripples of color traveling along the floor, as in this design.

#7 Randomly Shaped Grids

To get a more irregular feel, but still somewhat grid-like, tile makers just use more irregular shapes. This Studio Quad Lagoon Modular Mosaic has some red, blues, and whites amongst other colors to give the look of stained-glass window, but for your bathroom floor. A lighter palette might be better suited to get add a golden touch to your next remodeling project.

#8 Brick Layouts

Brick layouts that are one on top of another and staggered, are also still popular. They also work better for more "ordered" designs that are less abstract. The Suji collection puts them in one mosaic tile with plenty of color choices. The tiles can come in a wide range of colors like green, blue and white in a single tile and would be an excellent choice for a cooler-toned bathroom or kitchen.
