A unique way to make your tile floors stand out is by alternating tile type, shape and size. This technique is not only beautiful, it can help open up a room and make the space appear larger than it actually is. Depending on the type of tile you choose, you can install these distinctive tiles in your kitchen, bathroom, living room and dining area.
The first time I saw a floor pattern using 2 size tiles was in my grandparent's house. Their tile floors consisted of 4 different tile types including brick, ceramic, Saltillo and slate. The end result was a classic floor surface that coordinated well with almost any décor. They had this 2 size tiles run all the way from the kitchen to the living room, down the hallway, and in the bathroom and laundry room.
Alternating between tile type, color and size is also a great way to hide dirt build up and other unsightly debris. This means less maintenance is required to keep your home, and floors, looking clean. If you desire a floor that entails less upkeep than other surfaces, a floor pattern using 2 size tiles may be just what you need!
