Floor Tile Patterns

One of the great things about laying tile flooring is the limitless layout design possibilities. Depending on the number of different tiles selected as well as the size, shape, and color of the tiles, you can create anything from a standard grid pattern to a complex design. Because floor tile patterns have so much variety, I would no sooner tell you which design is best for you than I would tell you what to wear to work in the morning. I will, however, provide you with an overview of available tile flooring designs in hopes that you will find the inspiration to take your tile floor installation to the next level.

When purchasing all tiles of the same size, shape, and color, there are fewer tile patterns available than there are when purchasing 2 or 3 different floor tiles (whether they differ in size, shape, or color). Floor tiles of the same size are most commonly laid in a square grid pattern lining up with each other or in an offset pattern (both of which are installed square with the room). These tiles can also be laid diagonally creating what is known as a diamond pattern. Checkerboard patterns using alternating colors are common with these tile installations and are one of my favorite tile patterns used today.

When two or more different floor tiles are being used, design possibilities expand to a limitless array of options. You can create detailed tile floor patterns using repeating arrangements of tiles, or even choose a randomized pattern which will guarantee you a unique tile floor design. It is also common to install an accent border using smaller tiles around the perimeter of the room or around a tile centerpiece. These centerpieces, commonly known as tile mosaics, can be purchased in pre-made patterns or custom created by the tile installer. When installing tile floors, don't forget about the trims and transitions that are needed to help complete your project. For help completing your tile floor installation, be sure to visit our FindAnyFloor Forums where flooring professionals are always ready and willing to help.

Check out this forum post http://www.findanyfloor.com/forum/FloorTalkEverythingaboutFlooring/DesignInspiration/Fancyfloorcovers-1217.xhtml there are some patterns that you could do with different sized tiles depending on the amount you have of each type. Otherwise it's best to just lay them out and see how they fit together. Remember to check their thickness to ensure that one tile won't stand higher than another.
