M S International, Inc. (MSI), a distributor of flooring, wall tile, countertops and hardscaping materials, has introduced a free online toolthat offers more than 40 floor pattern designs. The floor pattern tool helps homeowners choose from a broad range of pattern styles and quickly visualize their new tile flooring. MSI encourages industry professionals to make this tool available on their website to increase customer engagement during the sales process.

With the new product, users select one, two or multiple sizes of tiles to be used in the project. The tool offers many floor patterns, including diamond, herringbone, chevron and versailles, and provides the most popular tile sizes to choose from. Once the floor design is selected, users can conveniently calculate the number of tiles needed by inputting the size of the room and adding a percentage allotted for waste.

“With the addition of this web-based tool to our suite of MSI visualizers, we continue to enhance the customer experience and strive to simplify the design selection and decision-making process for customers, vendors and distributors involved,” said Rupesh Shah, president of MSI. “We believe the floor pattern tool will help homeowners feel more confident in choosing a tile pattern that suits their personal style.”

The new tool, along with other industry leading visualizers and design trend tools, are available for tile retailers, designers, fabricators and distributors to embed on their website.
