Consider These 3 Factors When Choosing Patterned Tile Flooring, Waterbury, Connecticut

Ceramic and porcelain tile are beautiful flooring options for bathrooms and kitchens that can bring color and dimension to a space. If you’re not excited about a plain solid color, consider choosing a patterned tile to bring more life to the room. Not sure where to begin? Carpet Excellence in Waterbury, CT, shares three factors that will help you find the perfect tile pattern for your home.

How to Choose Ceramic & Porcelain Tile Flooring Patterns

1. Size

First, consider the physical size of the tile and the pattern you’re interested in. Small tiles that also feature small patterns will look too crowded, especially in a larger space like a kitchen. Reserve these small patterns for backsplashes instead. Opt for ceramic and porcelain tiles with larger patterns for kitchen and bathroom flooring. Not only will they do a better job of drawing the eye to the floor, but the bigger dimensions will make the space feel roomier than it is. 

2. Placement

ceramic and porcelain tile Waterbury CTPatterned tiles add a focal point to the room. A tile border around a kitchen can make it appear cozier by creating the illusion the walls are closer together. You can place a medallion in a pattern on a smaller area like a bathroom floor to direct the eyes. Use interlocking patterns like the Versaille or running bond only in larger spaces like open kitchen concepts as they make look too clustered in tiny spaces. 

3. Transitions

New porcelain and ceramic tile flooring will physically meet the other flooring styles in your home, so factor the color and texture of these materials into your tile choices. For example, if a tile section will be near a blue carpet, choose a pattern that will match with or complement the existing flooring.
