Tiles on a floor or wall create a durable result, and home owners surely save money when they do the project themselves. Tile Designs shows how, with some careful planning, a tiled surface can become a work of art. Patterns in tiled surfaces for floors, walls and elsewhere in the home can create a rich and pleasing result.

Author Leila Adam uses basic geometry to create more than 100 mosaic patterns that can be repeated over and over to cover an area without any gaps or overlapping. These designs use standard sized tiles.

This comprehensive guide features:

Stunning color photographs that provide inspiration and ideas for large and small tiling projects Detailed color illustrations that show ready-to-use tiling patterns Guidance on how to use the patterns and easy mosaic techniques to create original patterns Detailed instructions that explain how to lay tiles for do-it-yourself projects.

Tile Designs makes it easy to create intricate effects and complex mosaic designs using off-the-shelf tiles in standard colors.
