5 Ways to Personalize Tile Flooring
Here are five quick ways to personalize tile flooring.
There are basically five ways to tile that can be mixed and matched to create a personalized installation for a home:
2. Direction -- it can be straight set, diamond-shaped, etc.
3. Size -- to be able to offset the tile by using two or more sizes.
4. Borders, patterns and insets
5. Relief and texture. This means creating a three-dimensional effect on a wall or countertop installation behind a splash. On a floor, mix glossy tiles with textured tiles.
A square room is probably the easiest room to design. A couple of things to keep in mind is to look up and see what the soffits are doing. Some of the most beautiful installations are to follow the soffit with a border around the room. You can also create a solid border and turn a tile in the middle of it. This would create a custom look but cost little to do.
