We believe that when tiling the walls or floor of your home, your only limit should be your creativity. You shouldn’t be held back by things like available floor tile designs, locations or orientations for tiling, or colors to choose from. That’s why here at Machuca Tile, we allow you to customize our tiles and even suggest your ideas.
With that said, we also don’t want you to be held back by the shape of your tiles. Just because it’s a tile doesn’t mean it has to be square! We also have diamond tile patterns, hexagons, and brick tiles within our catalog.
In this article, let’s take a look at how diamond tiles can give your house, office, or building a modern yet unique look. Here’s where and how to install a diamond tile pattern.
Make a cube pattern out of diamond tiles
Cube illusions are an on-trend style these days, and they’re easy enough to put together with diamond tiles. Just put two diamonds side by side, with their corners meeting in the middle, and connect a third tile on top.
This geometric, optical illusion-like aesthetic will surely be a hit already. To take it up another notch, you can up the ante with diamond tiles in varying shades. Each “side” of your cube can match the others, or you can mix and match with different colors to make patterns. You can even start with monochromatic tiles and then throw in a random color just to break the pattern.
Don’t limit your diamond tiles to the floor
You’ve seen how our very creative and forward-thinking clients have installed Machuca’s iconic square tiles on their walls, stairs, or even furniture and fixtures. Well, your diamond tiles don’t need to be limited to the floor, either!
Consider tiling the walls of your house according to the vibe you want each room to have. For example, line kitchen walls with reds, oranges, and browns to make people hungry for a good meal. Bring out the vibrancy of semi-outdoor spaces with bright yellows and greens!
Use two or more differently colored tiles
If you are particularly fond of two or more colors, why not use them on your wall or floor? Alternating solids never go out of style, but having them in a diamond shape elevates their look and gives them an unexpected twist.
You can opt for the cube illusion once again and have fun asking young guests “Are the lines pointing up or down?” That will get them busy analyzing and staring at the wall. You’ll never get tired of looking at your favorite colors on your wall or floor.
Use a combination of diamond and square tiles.
It might take a bit more flexibility, but as we said, the only limit to designing the tile pattern for your wall or floor is your creativity! Mix and match our iconic patterned Machuca square tiles with some plain diamond tiles for something out-of-this-world. You can try some tiles from our black & white collection with brightly colored diamonds for easy mix-and-matching!
Use tiles of the same color family for an ombre look
Finally, you can make use of our available colors to put together another trending color combination—the ombre aesthetic! Put together a dark color with its corresponding lighter shades, like viridian green with aquamarine and white green. Another suggestion we have for those who prefer more feminine shades is coral red with blush and porcelain.
As you can see above, the result is something beautiful and unique. Whether as part of your wall or floor, you’re sure to create a lovely effect that will get your guests to marvel at the idea and maybe even think, “Maybe I should get diamond tiles, too!”
As you can see, you have many more options than just squares when it comes to tiling the walls or floor of your home, office, or building. Next time, consider diamond tile patterns—you’ll be surprised at the many ways you can put them together and create designs that are unique and outstanding.
