With so many floor tile styles available, it's easy to use your kitchen floor as a 'canvas' for your artistic floor design. If you prefer a no-fuss, simple, but high-end look, non-traditional tile size or shape is ideal. The design consultants at Metro Floors in Lancaster, California, can help you refine your design ideas. We have a selection of tiles to fit any decorating style. You'll find brands by top companies like American Olean, Dal-Tile, and Marazzi in our tile store.

Large-format tiles

Very light and very dark floor colors are trendy now. You can follow this trend and create an attractive floor by choosing large format tiles in two contrasting colors. The tiles can be placed in a diagonal pattern instead of a grid pattern. But the traditional grid pattern works well with large format octagon tiles. When the tiles are laid, there are diamond-shaped spaces between them which can be filled with smaller, lighter, or darker tiles.

Mosaic tiles

When you compare mosaic tiles, you'll find many 2-inch squares made of glass or ceramic. But there is a wide variety of other shapes, sizes, and materials. Pair these small tiles with octagon tiles. Or create a repeating pattern with square and mosaic tiles. Colors can be the same, matching or contrasting. A mosaic tile border is another option. This sophisticated design element, which is easily customized, enhances any space.
