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.

Vintage Hardware Manila


This popular online store for the trendy subway tiles has expanded; carrying exuberantly patterned blue-and-white or black-and-white tiles, some of which have embossed details.

The first—and original—brand of patterned encaustic tiles, Machuca stemmed from the Baldoza patterned tile factory in the 1900s owned by Don Jose Machuca de Romeo (hence the name). These are their tiles on the beautiful floor of the Quezon Heritage House.
