As picket tile are often used in showers and kitchen backsplashes, white remains the most popular color. But, it depends on the choice of each homeowner.

The installation of picket tiles is similar to installing other tiles. But, as they are smaller in size and can be arranged in braided, vertical, or horizontal patterns, it’s best to decide on the layout first. Begin by preparing the surface. Then, start by arranging the tiles according to your desired pattern on the floor and mark them. Afterward, the tiles can be installed as usual. We highly recommend you install the tiles by hiring an expert to avoid any mistakes in the process.

Picket tiles can be laid in a braided, horizontal, or vertical pattern. The layout and pattern also depend on the size of the picket tiles and the size of the area in which they will be installed. We recommend you start from below and continue with the pattern. The braided pattern will require more thought and effort than others.

A quick tip is to lay the first tile horizontally, and the other one slanted and pointed upwards next to it. Then, it becomes easier to braid by laying other tiles aligned in the same pattern. As you work towards the edges, it’s easier to figure out areas where the tile needs cutting.

Restaurants, cafés, and front office spaces can benefit from their sleek look.

We recommend you use a cleaning product that’s specifically designed for tiles. Avoid using harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaning tools (steel wool) unless you need to get rid of tough stains. For regular cleaning, a solution of water and mild surface cleaning product will suffice. You can also use a solution of warm water and vinegar!

Block colors are becoming the trend with tiles. So, getting your picket tiles in a mix of contrasting colors can add a vivacious element to the room. Don’t be afraid to go for colorful shades!

However, if you are more into neutral shades, colors like grey, beige, cream, black, and white remain the all-time popular options. Modern homeowners also go for terracotta, deep blue, sea green, sky blue, and dull grey. After all, you can’t go wrong by seeking inspiration from nature!

The layout also plays a role. Installing picket tiles vertically can make the room feel more spacious, while laying them horizontally can make it feel narrower. It’s your choice! If you like out-of-the-ordinary patterns, braided is the choice!
