Modular Floor Tiles

Floor TilesModular floor tiles are, pure and simply, a tile pattern that incorporates tiles of many different sizes fitted together into neat, regimented patterns. Most tiles use only three different size variations however some use more and all use rectangular or squared shapes. Although difficult to plan because each tile needs to fit in together in precise, uniform patterns, when it is pulled off successfully the result is a visually pleasing yet very simple design that avoids the usual straight lines found in more traditional floor tile layouts. The eyes are no longer led along the rows of tiles straight towards the nearest wall or the ceiling; instead they are encouraged to linger, following criss-crossing patterns that allow the viewer to more greatly appreciate your floor. It’s a design that can last for years if fitted correctly.

Unless you feel confident in your DIY and interior decoration skills, consider hiring a professional to lay them down for you. As noted, the design is complex and difficult to do well.

As with all tiles, modular floor tiles come in a wide range of colours, shapes and materials, allowing for you to customise your floor to your hearts content. However ensure that if you are indeed going for floor tiles -- nothing says you can’t use the design for walls -- that your tiles are durable and strong, especially for kitchen tiles. Floor tiles expect a lot of traffic, and if you want your design to last for any length of time you must select tiles that can be expected to withstand the pressure. Depending on which room the tiles are to be laid in as well, consider carefully your colour scheme and designs. Brighter colours are best suited for the kitchen, for example, so that they can be more easily made clean. Stains are easier to spot on bright tiles than dark ones. Meanwhile, natural stone would better suit a garden patio.

There are a wide range of designs to choose from, such as Toscano tiles, Himalaya tiles, Tivoli tiles and Perla tiles, each with their own quirks and qualities. Browse online to find which best suits you, such as www.wallsandfloors.co.uk, or check with a professional interior designer for his advice. Then proceed to give your home a floor that is both functional, original and pleasant to look upon.
