If you are upgrading your new tile floor, consider the different patterns available and how they accent your home. You can find a pattern that complements your home. Patterns are made using either same-sized tiles or incorporating various-sized tiles. Take a look below.
Floor Patterns Using the Same-Sized Tiles
At first it may not seem like you have a lot of options with one tile size. Aside from the classic grid and checkerboard patterns, there are actually quite a few distinct patterns that can only be made using uniform pieces. These options all help open up a room and make it seem larger than it is.
Floor Patterns Using Various-Sized Tiles
Using multiple sizes on your tile floor allows for more diversity and creativity. While virtually any design can be made using various-sized tiles, some of the more popular designs are outlined below.
Choosing a design for your tile floor should be a fun process of narrowing down your options to use one size or varying-sized tiles. After that, you can decide which pattern best complements the room you are installing it in. Contact a tile floor installation professional for more tips and information.Share

I have always loved baseball, and when the world series arrives each year, I enjoy inviting my friends over to watch the games. As our family grew, it became difficult for all of our guests to fit in our living room. We decided that we needed a dedicated "man cave" in our home, but we didn't have an extra room to build it in. We thought long and hard about how we could add it, but we finally decided to turn our garage into the man cave and have a carport built onto our home to park our cars under. I have always been interested in learning more handy-work, so I enjoyed watching the contractors build both the man cave and car port. I thought I would start a blog to share what I learned during the building process to help other homeowners!
