What Houzz contributors are saying:
Tile border. Greek key motifs also make great tile borders that dress up a space. Popular floor installations include edge borders that go around the perimeter of a room, and inset borders, like the one shown here. These create an enclosed space similar to that of an area rug. The size of the Greek key decorative tile will dictate the overall size of your border, because whole tiles need to be installed to maintain the continuity of the pattern. This installation has butt joints at the corners, meaning the vertical and horizontal ends abut each other versus being mitered, or cut on a 45-degree angle. Some tile manufacturers make corner pieces to continue the meandering motif around a 90-degree angle.
