Choosing floor tile

We don't have time for much beyond eating, sleeping and changing diapers these days, but that hasn't stopped me from daydreaming about projects I'd like to take on once we've settled into some sort of a routine (that will happen, right?). Now that we've installed hardwood flooring upstairs, the next flooring project we want to tackle is tiling our kitchen and entry-way (eventually we'll install hardwood flooring in our living room/dining room, too). So when RONA contacted me to check out their online selection of ceramic tiles, I jumped at the chance.

I've long been obsessed with large, rectangular tiles and I immediately fell for these "Bamboo Graffi" floor tiles. They come in either a light or a dark finish, and while I'm drawn to the light version, I think a dark tile would work better in our home.


Here's a similar-looking tile used in a bathroom. I love the texture and the staggered brick pattern.

Another possibility is this ceramic floor tile in either tabaco or basalto, though I'm drawn to the darker grey tone of the basalto. Here are two examples of similar-looking tile; it's amazing how much a seemingly small detail like grout colour changes the overall look.

Finally, I like the way this honey ceramic tile mimics the look of natural stone.

I could definitely see us using something like this in our kitchen and entryway.

Have you worked with tile before? Any tips for us?
