Mixed Sizes & Shapes
Another option for adding WOW factor or a point of difference in your design is by mixing sizes. For example, a lot of our smaller tile ranges come in multiple size options such as our Devonshire Superwhite Structured Gloss range which is available in a 150x150mm & 150x75mm size. Order the two and ask your tiler to mix them up as they are laid. You can create your own pattern that's slightly considered or just leave it to be completely random but we recommend you dry lay your mixed size pattern before it's laid.
If you've fallen in love with a rectified tile that's only available in the one size, ask if your tiler can cut them at random sizes for a funky pattern - we wouldn't advise doing this if your tile has an uneven, handmade look to it as the cut edges will be clean and won't have the uneven edges to them.
It’s also possible to create patterns that mix tiles that are of different sizes and shapes. Because of the added level of intricacy, these patterns are often most effective on larger floors like in living rooms or outdoors. That said, they can also make great features if you get the proportions right.
