Pattern Layouts

To envisage how the floor will look, imagine that you have a plain tiled floor, with a large rug on top. The rug is the pattern with the border around it and the tiles you see around the edges make up the fill. The fill is important as it visually deals with walls/rooms not being "square". If a wall runs out by 5cm from one end of the room to the other and you did not have fill then the border would be full width at one end and 5cm narrower at the other. Using plain tiles or fill around the edges means you do not disturb the border or pattern. It is the fill that would normally go into doorway recesses too. The fill is cut by the tiler from full 151x151mm (6") plain tiles supplied with the order.

There are several ways chequerboards can be tiled when using geometric borders. Whether you finish your pattern on Black or White (in this case) triangles then determines which colour strips you have, also the number of strips in the border can determine whether you finish on Black or White fill. This is important as this goes on to determine whether you have, for example, white gloss skirting boards or stained wood.
