Things to consider before the tile selection is made:

Tile is not temporary, it is considered permanent flooring. The customer must consider her lifestyle – by reflecting on what is most important in creating the overall “feel” in her home – and answer the following questions:
  • How much tile? A large amount of tile flowing from room to room will open up the house and establish the environment. The floor can be a focal point, or it can serve primarily as a complement to your furnishings and décor.
  • What style of tile? Tile is available in a variety of styles including rustic, old world, Mediterranean, southwest, contemporary and formal, to name a few.
  • Large or Small Tile? The larger the tile, the fewer grout lines you'll have. Large format tiles are ideal when tiling larger areas, but you should consider using them in smaller rooms as well.
  • How is the lighting? Lighter colors can open up a living space. Darker colors work well in rooms with lots of natural light.
  • How to coordinate? Consider the colors of wall coverings, other flooring, cabinets, and lighting. Also consider the overall appearance of the interior environment that's desired. Tile is available in hundreds of colors, styles, and textures. So it's virtually certain that there's a tile that will suit your requirements.
