I love a quiet, white floor, but for certain spaces in the House, I think it is very very cool to play with a pattern tile floor. Especially in the hallway, I think this is a perfect floor choice. The gang is usually a small, narrow space, perfect for even with a striking floor. Thus you give the gang at one time character.

In a narrow space such as the gang you can lose little furniture, making it difficult to your interior taste in it. With pattern tiles as floor pressure you are right you stamp on the space. You can make it so keep quiet or crazy as you want. Choose a simple pattern in soft colors or shades of gray for a restful effect, or go loose with busy patterns, colored tiles or a mix of different tiles. I always get completely crazy if I blast a old building with such a beautiful tile floor, in your own home you can do that, too!
