Gone are the days when homeowners would settle for all-white (or all-beige, all-black) tiles. The trend now is to have a dizzying pattern underfoot, or on your walls. And for the homeowner who’s a bit pattern-shy, a subtle border along a backsplash or an accent panel of colorful tiles would also do.

Here are a few local patterned tile suppliers to head to—most of them also carry plain tiles of the same color family as the patterned ones, in case you want to coordinate them.
