Different tile, different rooms?


I was thinking of having different tile colors in several rooms.
Dining and Living room with the same color scheme.
Three bedrooms with a different color scheme.
All the tile will be 16 inches, placed on a diagonal.

Is there a issue with having different tile color scheme in different rooms. Some homes use a similar tile themes in the living, dining, and kitchen. This provides consistancy in the feel of the home, but might make the home more generic.

Would having different tile color schemes look awkward?

Just having tile in a bedroom would look strange to me.

Yeah, but I am not much of a fan of carpet, which I have had in the house for 15 years. People bring over pets and they make a mess.

I thought having tile in a few rooms would make it easier to keep clean. And didn't want to buy all the same tile at once, just in case I change my mind on how the tile looks. I was going to start with one room, and than move on to the second room, and than decide on the living room and dining room afterwards.

Look into engineered floor instead. faster to install, easy to clean, can be refinished.

Were do u live? If you have summer all year round then tile won't be the worst thing for you and if your by the beach then better yet.

Joe makes a good point I would even consider doing laminate if not hardwood.
