Helpful Hints For Getting Started

  • Never assume a room is perfectly square – always square off from the center and begin pattern along one edge.
  • To avoid rough edges on tile, always float the floor to a level state before installing tile.
  • Always round to the next highest footage when calculating square footage of tile needed.
  • Random is not a pattern, but a specific look designed by the installer.
  • Most random arrangements need to work on these percentages:
    60% 12 x 12  |  40% 6 x 12  |  40% 6 x 6
  • When installing tile in a random configuration, the percentages of tile for the three sizes involved do not add up to 100%, in order to allow for different looks through out the installation. These percentages will also allow for coverage needed due to centering of the layout.
  • Modular patterns, if laid according to this guide, will have a solid grout frame every three feet.
  • Each diagram represents nine square feet.
  • A dark outline on the pattern indicates where tiles begin to repeat.
