Jason, are you wanting to use the 2" tiles as dots in the corners, or are you thinking of a hopscotch pattern?

I was hoping to see either. I imagine hopscotch would be easier to set, or to cut anyway. Just looking for ideas really

you need a bigger accent for the hopscotch.
the smaller tile wont look to good and also be of a smaller thickness which wont work.

here is a Hopscotch with a 4x4 cut to 2's we did of the same tile in two different homes.

The 12x12 I am using and 2x2 are the same thickness..one is travertine and the other is onyx. I am actually considering cocoa onyx instead...but wife and are not sure...

so far we have looked at




and overlay to illustrate the other options


obviously, no grout lines shown and it being a natural stone we expect a lot of variations.

Thoughts?

Cut them in the corners, hate hopscotch, nice work Brain, but looking at that floor all day would drive me nuts.

Just another no holding back opinion on my part.

it' kind of too directional for me with the smaller tile.
I wouldn't mind the 18x18 & 12x12's.

the diagonal lanai made me dizzy.
straight hopscotch isn't bad.

Richie, wifey says she don't like it

Brian, I think proportionally speaking 18/4 is not 12/2 or 12/4, but it is closer to 12/2
