This is because bathroom floors have more importance than one would think they have, from function to its form. With that, this article shows the different basic tile floor patterns that you could use in order to improve your bathroom floors, and in the long run, the character and ambiance of the whole space.
To start off, there is of course the simplest: a plain design. Depending on your choice of tiles, this look can become sleek and complex in its effortlessness or rather too mundane to the eyes.
A good choice is to use large, dark slabs of tiles for them to create a modern and lustrous feel into the bathroom, giving you a contemporary edge in its simplicity.
Other things to consider in choosing styles are the texture and pattern engraved into the tile itself, giving you more creative freedom without risking complexity.
Second, venture into the art of bordering. Knowing how to accentuate certain parts of your floor can be difficult, but pull it off beautifully and you will never regret your choice.
With borders, you can have fun with the different sizes, textures, and patterns of tiles to create harmony in the overall design. Think of the whole space as a blank canvass, needing the perfect frame for it to come alive.
Then, there are also the blocking style where you could use to complimenting designs for alternating patterns. A good horizontal block, given you have a good contrasting color and design, can create highlights in the floor.
The trick to this style is to know which colors are good together and use them in creative combinations. If you are afraid to experiment on colors, you may opt to stick to one and use a different texture or size of tiling for the blocks.
With a little trick from the block style, you can create diagonal patterns that form diamonds across the floor area. In this method, you will discover that each diamond will leave a certain amount of space in their center.
This is your chance to fill it up with another tile design. If you want something for a change, you may want to install lights beneath these spaces and cover them up with glass tiles, giving you a starry drama whenever you turn the light switch on.
Lastly, the most complex is the mosaic. Here, you will be needing a great deal of effort from both your left and right brains to create nice image using tiles. Think outside the box for your masterpiece, but remember not to exaggerate for it might be overwhelming to the eyes.
A good thing to remember is layout the floor first with grids based from the measurement of your chosen tiles. For more information in laying out, click here.
