Rules of Tile Basement Flooring Design: So just what are the rules of design for basement tile floors? I love this one, it’s an oldie but a goodie.
Rule number 1, there are no rules.
Rule number 2, when in doubt, see rule number 1.
That’s it. Truly there are no rules.
It comes back to basic personal choice and the home owners creativity (or lack thereof). If you like a straight uniform design, then so be it. There’s nothing wrong with that.
If you’d like to use multiple color combinations to get that tropical feel and bring you back to a warm sunny day, go for it.
Non-conformist? Use multiple shapes, colors and sizes to achieve that glorious mural right there on your basement floor.
Where do you fit in: Bottom-line is, everywhere when it comes to tile basement flooring. Every designer knows that design is personal. Let your inner artist come out. If you like it, isn’t that all that matters anyways as you are the one that lives there.
By all means, express yourself and your personal tastes. It’s your home in your style for your way of life. One of the greatest things about tile is being able to design your own designs and then visibly seeing your creation come to life!
