Floor tile patterns:
Before installation of your tiles, ensure the floor or wall is level and secure;
Do not assume a room is perfectly square; always begin by squaring off center at the center of the room and starting the pattern along one edge;
When calculating the quantity of tile needed, always add 10% to 15% to your calculated area to account for cutting and losses, although the general rule of thumb is that providing the room is not oddly shaped, 10% will be ample.
