Ways to Get the Look

Here are two similar looks, but the pricing on these are very different.  Can you tell which is the more expensive (as in $1,000.00 more)?

In the first image, they have used a basic subway tile and simply laid it out in the a herringbone pattern to get the look.  In the second image, those tiles have each been hand cut on a perfect angle to match up with the adjoining tile to create a chevron pattern.  So, image number two is the more expensive due to the additional labor required of the tile work.  

I think as the chevron pattern becomes more popular, we will begin to see ready made parallelogram shaped tiles (my son would be so proud I worked in "parallelogram") in the real stone/marble tiles. 

Here are just a few more to consider in some lovely rooms. 



Have a wonderful day! M.

Hi there

I really love your website, centralofbands , and was wondering if you're looking for more content for your site? I work for Modernize.com and over the past few months, we've written for The Huffington Post, About.com, and even Time Magazine. I think we could provide some pretty awesome free articles for your readers as well.

Here are a few samples of our writing style:

Trendspotting Home Accents in Neon
( http://interiordec.about.com/od/AphroChic-About-Decor/ss/Trendspotting-Home-Accents-In-Neon.htm )


Keep in mind our content is free and written specifically for your site's audience. All that we ask is that we be given credit for our work with a link back to Modernize. We have a huge following in the remodeling industry and we would be happy to promote the article through our PR channels after it was live.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, I'd also be happy to hop on a phone call if you prefer.
Looking forward to hearing from you. We can usually get you a great article within a week!

Cheers,

Ryan
