Ceramic floor tile patterns for bathrooms and kitchens
Cheap tiles don't always have to mean poor quality tiles and there are ways home owners can reduce costs with fantastic design result. It may surprise you to know that it isn't so much the t 00004000 ile material you choose but what you do with the design that will really determine the end result and there are lots of things that can be done with design with any tile material.
Tile choices for bathrooms and kitchens do have to be chosen wisely mainly because they are both areas that are busy and have high traffic and they are both areas where there is moisture and water, any tile materials you choose have to be suitable for this area and be low maintenance. Ceramic tiles are relatively cheap tiles and can be used as both wall tile and floor tiles with fantastic results.
Ceramic tiles are not just supplied in standard sizes and come in a wide variety of sizes and style choices; there is the option to use different sized tiles usually called combination tiles with the same uniformed colour which can really create a unique floor tile pattern. Ceramic tiles can also be arranged in different patterns and there are many and each one will create a different look and feel to any home. The ideal solution that ceramic tiles offers ensures that home owners have relatively cheap tile solutions and the design style they want without compromising.

Where to buy modern tiles for a Kitchen Backsplash?
I have been searching for a kitchen backsplash for awhile and I finally decided on this particular tile. It's a mosaic red, orange, and antique gold glass tile. I found this at lowes in a book. The book listed a interior designer, but I would like to know where she bought it! Please help! I have looked for all sorts of tiles and this one is perfect!
Here is a picture of it:

I am installing a backsplash in my kitchen, and I have chosen to insert accent tiles along with the regular tiles. The accent tiles are pretty pricey ( for a single 4x4 inch piece). I am wondering how many accent tiles would look appropriate for my kitchen

Thanks in advance for all your help
how about putting your accent tiles only on the wall on top of the oven?
Do you think this will work in my kitchen?
Which is best for my kitchen?
This is a picture of my kitchen, the fridge is now black , the wall color is actually Crimson and not as bright as the photo suggests, and the countertops are grey with black and white flecks:
These are three possible backsplashes for the wall behind the sink:
Either the 1st or 5th picture on the last link (it wouldn't let me give seperate links)
We have tried to find tile that matches our counter and wall color, but have yet to find anything. We have considered plain black, but I think it would be too much, even though our kitchen is pretty light.
We plan on selling in the nest 2-3 years, so I wanted to get others opinions about the backsplash and not just do what I thought looked right.
Sorry...next 2-3 years.
Thanks for answering..I do award points, but please tell me why you do or do not like the splashes.
The first choice on the second link. You have a kitchen with simple lines to it so you will want to avoid something too "busy" like the firs link. The second choice of the second link is a bit to plain. It will not add to the kitchen but make it appear boring with it's straight lines. The first choice and the third choice are for lighter colored kitchens. Yours is darker so you should you want something that doesn't lighten it too much. The second choice is more of a muted shine.
Out of curiosity, have you checked with lowes or home depot to see if they can order a tile in the color that you would like? Your countertop coloring would make an excelent backsplash transition.

It's the second one on the second link.
We have tried in vane to find tile that matches everything, we have considered a simple black tile also, but I think it will be too overwhelming.
Honest input please=)
We are only going to be here for two more years and then we would like to sell, so I would like public opinion, not just my own.
The countertop is not stainless, it is corian, grey with black and white flecks...
First, let me say I love that crimson color! I don't like boring kitchens. We just painted our kitchen walls Granny Smith apple green and LOVE it!
I'd pick the second tile. Subway tile is very popular right now, and the stainless version is perfect!
