Mixing Patterns for a Cement Tile Rug

The most important part of any design is a cohesive and complementary color scheme. To create a cement tile rug, it's best to use a pattern design (field) with a border. Many patterns, like the Macoris, have a border; however, some may not, like the Nieba. Don't let this limit your choice for design! You can mix and match field and border patterns to create your own unique design.
