Floor Tile Pattern Design

Floor tile pattern design selection can be a bit overwhelming for a homeowner. There are a lot of different options to choose from with the most common being the standard pattern. Two other popular patterns are the brick pattern and diamond pattern.
My favorite floor tile pattern design method of installation is the Herringbone, a classic looking pattern. There are a lot of other options to choose from, here is a good article on 10 styles that most homeowners might not have been aware of:

For a lot of homeowners, their budget or skill level is the main determining factor of floor tile pattern design installation. The more complicated pattern, the longer it takes to install, hence it costs more to have a tile installer install it for you. Or if you are the DIY type and take on the tile installation yourself, you will want to do your research and plan accordingly to make sure you have the skill level to accomplish your goal.

Although we hate to loose a sign due to the storm last night, all things considered we are pretty lucky compared some of the other residents in the our DFW market. Hope everyone one is safe from the storm and continues to be safe during the cleanup.

Our Arlington store is still without power due to a snapped in half power line pole, so we will not be open today. We hope that we will be back open tomorrow as usual. Thank you to the power line men/women for their work. If you are in need of discount prices on brand name floors, please stop by our Burleson showroom.

Today we are highlighting a very popular engineered hardwood by Bella Cera. It is their Tuscan collection, which is a 3/8' handscraped engineered hickory hardwood floor with 4",5",6" varied width planks.
The varied width planks offer the floor a different dimension than your standard 5" wide planks, it is reminiscent of the days when homes were built using the wood available and not every plank of the floor was the same size or length, they used what they had and made it fit.

Below are some photos of different houses and different colors that are available in the Tuscan collection that we have installed this floor in, both on the floors themselves as well as stairs.

You can view the available colors here on our website as well as our two showrooms in Burleson and Arlington, TX where we have a great selection of brand name floors at discount prices!
