Ceramic floor tiles are not as popular as they once were, mainly because of the increase in popularity of the more durable porcelain tiles. However, ceramic tiles do still have their uses, and if you have a creative flair, there is much that can be done with these tiles. Ceramic floor tiles have one downside in the minds of many and that is the fact that each tile in a set is identical. If you have a large floor space, then having the one repetitive tile can look a little boring – it doesn’t have to.
To begin with, you can mix different ceramic floor tiles in the one area. The use of black and white tiles in a checkerboard look was once popular, and with today’s huge range of colors and textures, you can go one step further, creating a large mosaic of color. If you are looking for ideas, we suggest coming into Éco Dépôt in Montreal (we have three showrooms) and talking to one of our tile experts. They can help you create a design that is uniquely yours using different color and textured ceramic floor tiles.
Some ideas to consider include using different colors as borders, creating smaller squares or rectangles using different colors, or sticking with a checkerboard effect using two different colors. You will be surprised with the finish of a checkerboard floor that uses ceramic floor tiles that are slightly different in color rather than the stark black and white of many years ago.
If you have a creative flair, then come and talk to us. There is so much that can be done using ceramic floor tiles – you really can have a finished floor that is not just totally unique. It is your design.
