Using a large tile pattern on the floor will increase the perceived size of a room.

When tiling a room with water (bathroom, or entry way) consider using natural stone or a textured ceramic or porcelain. The texture will keep the floor from becoming slippery when wet. in-floor heat is a great way to save on the heating bill, increase your homes value, and keep your toes warm during cold winters.

floor measuring guide

1. Determine the pattern you would like to use. 2. Determine the square footage by measuring the length and width of your space and then multiplying the two measurements. 3. Use the percentages in this guide to determine the amount of each tile size you need.

for example: if you have a 100 sq ft room and your pattern calls for 80% 12" tile, and 20% 6" tile, you will need 80 sq ft of 12" tile and 20 sq ft of 6" tile.

4. Add 10% to your calculations for overages on straight set tile and 15% overage for tile set at a diagonal.
