The tile can include two alternating colors. You can also select just one color of tile for a monochromatic design.

This diagonal pattern can provide a more spacious look to any room. It adds interest to your flooring design. Measuring and marking the floor to ensure that your pattern is correctly aligned is crucial to a successful installation.
