My girlfriend Sara Eisen actually sent me this picture ages ago. I always meant to get to it – but never did. Until today.
Sara hates the “balatot” (terrazzo) tiles in her front entryway, but getting the area re-tiled isn’t currently an option. So she asked me about cutting out an area of the tiles and putting in decorative tiles instead.
Here’s one option for you. Cutting out the corners of the tile and place in decorative tile in a pattern through the space. A skilled tile person can do this without a problem and it shouldn’t be that expensive either.
Another option would be to cut a BIG section of the tile out and lay down a carpet pattern.
Like this – only new and in much better shape…
Actually, this is much more like it.
Carpet would work as well, although it does mean extra work when cleaning…
