Pretty Pickets

Let’s get straight to the point: there are few things more charming than the architectural silhouette of a white picket fence. Essentially a six-sided elongated hexagon, the picket has made its way in to the tile world with a wide range of variations of this crisp and classy design module.

For homeowners who shy away from bold color statements in hard surfaces, the picket awaits as a striking remedy to the ho-hum of plain white tile.

Used horizontally, the picket gives a polite nod to the subway tile we love, but kicks it up a notch with the intrigue of peaked ends. Off-set or stacked, even a simple gloss white surface can sing with geometric interest and a play on proportion. Product Shown: WOW Gradient
Turned on its short edge and used vertically, a picket will draw the eye upward, high lighting the grandeur of a super sized ceiling height or creating an illusion of height where it may be lacking. Product Shown: WOW Gradient
For those who do love design with color, the picket brings a striking element to both soft and bold hues. A tile with intentional glaze variation offers the most striking and dramatic picket installation, resulting in a surface with a one-of-a kind appeal. Crossville Handwritten

Pickets can be exaggerated with long, slender grace, bold and wide for a solid statement, or smaller scale for a mosaic application. With more than one appealing application, it’s a shape that is intriguing to the eye while reference a comfortable classic.

Giving due consideration to the shape of your tile as well as the color brings an additional dimension of intent and confidence to any room.
