Diamond Pattern Tile Layout

One of the details to consider here is the layout of the tiles. To arrange your tiles in a diamond pattern, you must push the corners of each tile against the wall, NOT the sides of the corners against the walls.

Material – Tile colors to match this image can be Noce, Tan, or Mohave Sand . The pattern on the tile itself is what we call the pixel stone pattern.

One of the details to consider here is the layout of the tiles. To arrange your tiles in a diamond pattern, you must push the corners of each tile against the wall, NOT the sides of the corners against the walls. If you lay the tiles with the sides against the walls, you are left with a checkerboard layout rather than the diamond floor layout you see in the image above. The aesthetic appeal between the diamond layout vs. the checkerboard layout is all a matter of personal taste, and is often dependent on the type of tile you are using. Designing the aesthetics of your floor arrangement is absolutely an art, and must be considered as such in order to establish a quality floor layout that works best for your environment.

Subtle Details to Consider

These extra steps are usually taken by those with a detail oriented mind.
