What Type of Tile Should You Look For?

There are so many shapes of tile - what's best for you?

  • Collect photos of what you like – what shape tile do you see?
  • Keep in mind – unusual shapes cost more for installation.
  • Are small tiles better for small bathrooms?  Not at all.  Also, small tiles cost more to install.
  • Look for porcelain tile – It’s harder!
  • Find a porcelain tile that has the same color on the sides as the face.  This saves on using expensive edging pieces.
