Broken tile front porch

10 tools

This was the first broken tile project I have ever done. The tile and tools were given to me so I only had to buy the grout. The key to getting a good look is to have true randomness. Grab a tile and put it down. Don't piece it together like a puzzle.

Began by getting the outside unbroken tile laid out.

Broke tile in a bucket, then began laying it out randomly filling in where needed. I had 3 types of tile to use. Size and slight color difference.

Continued the same pattern on the step.
