PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN

Design with Color

Color can change the mood of the room, highlight its good points and obscure its bad points.

Counters and walls can use tiles that complement or contrast in color to those used on the floor

Tile can be cut into one-quarter size and alternate colors to create custom borders.

Design with Direction

Tile can be set with a straight joint, brick joint, or patterns such as herringbone, basket weave, etc.

Change direction from straight set, to a 458 degree angle in another room to define different areas of the home.

Use modular sizes of tile, to create patterns. Change sizes to delineate specific areas.

Design with Size

Use modular sizes of tiles in two or more sizes to create multiple piece patterns. Change sizes within an installation to create unique effects or to delineate specific areas or rooms.

Design with Decorative Factory Pieces

  • Tile can be installed in an “area rug” configuration
  • Medallions can be tied in with the home’s architecture
  • Use listellos to border or personalize any room
  • Custom fabricate tiles using water jet technology

Design with relief and texture

Use various textures together for unique effects. Tile provides the ability to inset different tiles or stones
