The traditional use of cement tiles is to create a tile rug design centered in a room. Of course it is not the only way mosaicos hidraulicos are laid, but making a tile rug in a room is one great way to lend a look of organization and visually group furniture arrangements. Making a tile floor rug layout also can add a feel of formality to a space. Add additoonal benefit is that you can use the patterned tile to create the mosaic tile rug and border and then use the much less expensive solid color tiles from the border out to the edges of the room.
