We bought a house that had the same white tile throughout the kitchen, living room and hallway. The kitchen and living room are one big room. We added a dining room to the area and the tile (15 3/4 inch white tile with texture) is discontinued. My husband wants to save time and money by putting in different tile in the dining room, hallway and connecting bathroom. Everything runs together nicely, so I am not sure how it's going to look to change the tile when everything is one big area? My husband has created a "step diagonal" and plans on laying the new tile starting there (it's where the dining room and living room meet). I need ideas, thoughts and suggestions.
