Staggered/subway/woodlook tile pattern-
In which way to we lay out this pattern?
Things to consider:
1. Shape of room
2. size of tile
3. Functionality of room
4. Style of home. Example: traditional, modern...etc
If the room is square then look at where the doorway is.
I would lay out the tile horizontal to the doorway. If you want a modern look than vertical will make it look more modern.
If the room is a rectangle. Consider if you want that room to look longer? If the answer is yes then go vertical to a vertical rectangle shape of the room. If you want that room to look more traditional and you do not want to see long lines than go ahead and the place it horizontal.
When you can not visualize what the space will look like. The help of a professional can be rewarding. Color schemes, textures and patterns are important. When you place your trust on someone who has done this before it can take the edge of picking things out. We all fall in love with a certain look or item. But, will this item work in your particular space? Do we take the item and make it the source of the design? Is the item fictional? These are all questions that you maybe asking when it's too late. Don't just shop, shop with purpose and functionality. When you turn to a professional like Artisan at Whitfield Design you can rest in the comfort of design and functionality. We look at all aspects of the space we are working with. We ask many questions and work with your vision in mind.
