Are These Tile Shapes Contemporary/Modern or Traditional/Transitional

2 months ago

I'm in the brain melting phase of renovating a traditional home in a classic style. I have looked for this information everywhere but haven't found a real answer yet to the following two questions:

1. 12 x 24 Tile: Is this a contemporary/modern tile or does that depend on the look and layout of the tile?

2. Hex Tile: I know 1", 2", & 3" work for traditional/transitional. What about bigger sizes? And if they work, what would be the biggest before they started to read contemporary?

We are currently in a rental house that has a lot of black 11" x 13" hex floor tile and a lot of 12 x 24 black floor tile and it reads very contemporary and I think that may be throwing me off.

Thank you in advance for any insight or advice
