The Pinwheel Tile Layout

I have had several new clients wanting to give various rooms in their homes a face lift lately.  With the economy still recovering, they want to do minimal updates in phases as their budget will allow.  One of the best face lifts my clients seem to be going for is new flooring.

So now I ask you, why stick with boring?  Why not add some pizazz to your space with a fun tile layout.  Skip the ordinary and have some fun with it!  Show off your tile setting skills, whether you have them or not.  (Because guess what, no one needs to know if your a first time tile setter, or a tile contractor!)

This post is all about one of my all time favorite tile layouts, and one of the easiest layouts to do yourself.  The Pinwheel.  This is a super simple layout that is easy to do, even if you aren't an experienced tile setter.  The other great feature of this tile layout, is it looks great in any room, and any size.  Small bathrooms, check!  Large great rooms, Check!  You can even do it on a back splash, or even a shower surround.

So, are you ready to try this layout on your own?  Download the layout and material calculator, and get started!  This layout is great for first time tile setters.  Just be sure to take your time, and use your spacers.
