The Greeks certainly knew a thing or two about tiled floors, so why not take a leaf out their book and create a truly Greek inspired floor that everyone will admire in your home. This is a look that is best achieved by using a larger sized tile; one with a highly polished surface. Opt for a neutral palette, something like cream or beige porcelain floor tiles would work perfectly. The key to achieving the look is in the placing of a tile border within the centre of the room. Use accent designer tiles with geometric patterns in gold or black for maximum effect.
