Name of Tile Pattern



The corridor tile pattern is a simple, two-tile style. It is essentially a grid-like tile pattern broken up with intervening rows of narrower, rectangular tiles.

Some homeowners make the mistake of introducing a different color for the "corridor" rows. This gives the floor the appearance of "jail bars." With corridor tiles patterns, you may want to keep all tiles the same color.

Advantages/Disadvantages of Tile Pattern


  • Simple to install.


  • Danger of the "bar-like" effect mentioned above.
