Space can influence your mood in ways you might not be aware of. Everything in a room contributes to the overall appeal of your home. Your floors, for example, can make your surroundings appear brighter, cozier, warmer, or larger depending on its color and design. This part of the house may be the least of your worries, but if you pay more attention to it, you will surely be delighted by the changes it will bring to your home.

Who says tiles should be square all the time? There are at least seven tile layouts and patterns you can choose from. They are all unique and they differ from each other in design. Check out argyle, weave, herringbone, knit, stitch, stagger and flemish bond tile patterns. Incorporating two or more colors will give the layout some more depth and definition, making your flooring stand out.
What is commonly used as a backsplash can pretty much look good for your flooring as well. Mosaic tiles have their own appeal. Creating one whole piece of pattern with tiny tiles of different texture and color can produce a work of art that deserves all your money’s worth. Of course, for this layout, you can use rough or matted surfaces instead of the more favored glossy finish with shimmery accents.
Ceramic tiles are one of the most popular tiles for floors because of its sleek appearance and affordability. They are versatile and stylish. You can even use them for your countertop of for your shower room backsplash. Ceramic tiles are easy to clean because they are stain and water resistant. Take a chance to look for a quality selection in the market, and you wouldn’t be disappointed.
If you are into art, what better way to use as a canvas than your flooring? Blank and uni-colored floors are depressing to look at. They lack life and energy with how plain they appear. So to channel your inner artist, design it in a way that reflects your personality and interests. Technology is getting pretty advanced these days and they can easily replicate numerous images on tiles so you can place them altogether in a one of a kind pattern on your floor.
