Aim For Tiles With Shared Dimensions. Even if you’re not a perfectionist, little things like grout lines that don’t match up can drive you crazy, and might actually make it more difficult for someone to install your tile. If you’re selecting a few different tile sizes, try and make sure that they’re multiples of each other—perhaps a 12 inch-by-12 inch floor tile, with a four inch-by-four inch wall tile and a one inch-by-one inch border tile. That way, all of the tiles will line up neatly, and you can rest peacefully knowing that everything is aligned.
Small formats continue to gain visibility in wall tile portfolios, reinforced by the enduring popularity of subway tiles. The most popular formats appear to be 200 by 200mm (no surprise given the strength of traditional encaustic tiles), 150 by 300mm and 100 by 750mm; although 75 by 300mm is also growing in popularity and influence. Gauged porcelain slabs or thin porcelain sheets. This relatively new market segment continues to gather a head of steam; especially as a strategy to reduce grout joints in bathrooms and kitchen worktops. The market is steadily adjusting to this material, and it is becoming more commonplace at the point of sale.
