*Pics* Entry way tile designs needed


I'm planning to tile my entry way, but I'm still trying to determine what color, size, and type of tile and what pattern to use. I want something different than a normal pattern.

I will also be redoing the tile in my kitchen and bathrooms, so I want to maintain a consistent feel throughout the house.

Here is a mockup I did. Tell me what you think.

I'd do an 8 inch tile around the outside with the same pattern I have now. Then I'd do an accent border tile (I'm guessing around 2"). Then within that border, I'd use something like a 16" tile laid at a 45 degree angle.

I really like this look, but I can see problems where the wood meets the tile and when the wood needs to be resurfaced.

You need a "design forum". There may be one of those here somewhere. We are more into the mechanics of the deal and creating long lasting tile installations, the design is up to you.
