Tiles, and related pavers, are manufactured repeatable units arranged in various patterns as floor or wall coverings. Crafted with durable materials such as ceramic, clay, metal, stone, wood, and glass, tiles are most commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms where it is desired to have easy to clean and impact resist surfaces. Pavers, typically distinguished by their increased unit thicknesses and greater durability for exterior applications, are often produced in stone, brick, or concrete and used for roads, driveways, patios, and walkways. In conjunction with the variety of possible patterns available, tiles throughout history have also been used ornamentally to form complex decorative mosaics around the world.

What is the difference between a tile and a paver?

Although the words tile and paver are often used interchangeably in the tile industry, the difference between a tile and paver is usually determined by the thickness of the unit. Tiles are generally 1” (25 mm) and thinner, while pavers are typically 2” (51 mm) and greater.

What surfaces are tiles used on?

Tiles are commonly installed on prepared indoor substrates such as concrete floors, prepared wood floor, or walls.

What surfaces are pavers used on?

Pavers, unlike tiles, are typically used on both flexible and rigid exterior surface conditions where drainage and/or permeability is important. Flexible surfaces include compacted soils and graded aggregates, while rigid surfaces typically refer to concrete slabs.

Two Tile English Cross Bond Pattern
Drawing of the Two Tile English Cross Bond Pattern used in tile and paving logics

In a Two Tile English Cross Bond Pattern rectangular tiles are laid in a traditional brick pattern. But unlike a traditional brick pattern, the Two Tile English Cross Bond Pattern utilizes two rectangle sizes. In one row one size is place side by side, and the next row alternates with the second tile size being placed to another.

Rectangular Stretcher Bond Pattern
Illustrations of the horizontal and vertical options for Rectangular Stretcher Bond tile and paver patterns

In a Rectangular Stretcher Bond Pattern rectangular tiles are laid in a brick pattern. Each tile overlaps the tile above and below by half, resulting in offset grout lines. The offset grout lines can hide imperfections in tiling, and it is a good way to give an illusion of space and height. The pattern can be laid horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

Hexagon Pattern
Drawing of a hexagonal tile pattern with unit logic diagram for tiles and pavers

A Hexagon Pattern tile is a mosaic of hexagons, where three hexagons meet at each vertex; this pattern is then repeated. The internal angle of the hexagon is 120 degrees, so that three hexagons at a point make a full 360 degrees. This tiling is ideal for walls, backsplashes, and showers.

Two Tile Pinwheel Pattern
Drawing of the Two Tile Pinwheel Pattern commonly used for organizing tiles and pavers

The Two Tile Pinwheel Pattern is a pattern that requires four rectangles to meet, creating a spinning pinwheel motif. The rectangles are alternated vertically or horizontal, and each rectangle meets the one next to it and below it halfway. The rest of the tiles are squares that are half the size of the rectangle.

Square Grid Pattern
Illustration of a Square Grid Pattern and unit logic used tiling and paving

A Square Grid Pattern is versatile pattern to customize any desired look in bathrooms, kitchens, or commercial spaces. The square tiles are laid in a straight grid format with no offsets in the tiles. It can utilize one of the same tile, or the tiles can be alternated to create a checkerboard look.
