    Why Buy From Miss Marples Craft

    Aunties Two Patterns - Floor Tiles

    Makes one 18" tile or make six and sew togethers for a 35"x 53" rug 

    1. Checkerboard Pattern

    • Alternate the two different tiles in a regular grid pattern.
    • This works well with contrasting colors and simple geometric shapes.

    2. Border and Inset

    • Use one pattern for the main field of the floor and the other as a border.
    • This creates a framed look and can define the space nicely.

    3. Accent Tiles

    • Use one tile for the majority of the floor and the other as occasional accents.
    • This works well with smaller tiles or more intricate patterns.

    4. Striped Layout

    • Lay the tiles in stripes, alternating between the two patterns.
    • This can be done in both straight and diagonal lines.

    5. Random Mix

    • Mix the two patterns randomly but in a balanced way.
    • This creates a more casual and eclectic look.

    6. Diagonal Pattern

    • Arrange the tiles in a diagonal checkerboard or herringbone pattern.
    • Diagonal layouts can add a dynamic and interesting visual effect.

    7. Central Medallion

    • Create a central medallion or focal point using one pattern, surrounded by the other pattern.
    • This works well in large rooms or entryways.

    8. Patchwork Design

    • Combine the two patterns in a patchwork design, where each pattern is used in larger sections rather than alternating tiles.
    • This is ideal for creating a cozy and warm atmosphere.

    Tips for Combining Two Tile Patterns:

    1. Color Coordination: Ensure the colors of the two patterns complement each other. You can go for contrasting colors for a bold look or similar tones for a more subtle effect.
    2. Tile Size: Make sure the tiles are of compatible sizes, so they fit together well without needing excessive cutting or adjustments.
    3. Room Size and Layout: Consider the size and shape of the room. Smaller patterns work well in smaller spaces, while larger patterns can make a bigger impact in larger rooms.
    4. Balance and Symmetry: Maintain a sense of balance and symmetry in your design to avoid a chaotic look.
    5. Grout Color: The color of the grout can significantly affect the overall appearance. Matching the grout color with one of the tiles can help blend the patterns seamlessly.
