  1. Just a query for the resident tilers out there, @Nickfromwales, @nod, @Onoff, trying to decide which way to design my floor tile layout. I will be laying 1200 x 1200 floor tiles and most of the layout is pretty straight forward except for one area. I have tiled quite a few times before and I know the setting out is very important and worth the time it takes to get the right look but I have a long corridor which would look great with the tile joint down the middle and an even sized tile each side approx 800mm. If I go down this route it creates a problem on the other side of the house in the large lounge/kitchen/dining room area. In this area I have three columns that I need to tile around, these are approx 200mm square and would mean having to tile round them with small pieces round the back next to the sliding doors. If I started my tiling in a straight line immediately next to the columns this would mean the cuts would then look right as it would be a tile 350mm x 1200mm with the square for the column cut out of it but would look better in my opinion. If I went down this route it would then throw out the corridor area which would be a tile of approx 400mm against the internal wall and a full tile against the exterior wall if this makes sense. I realise tiling is sometimes about compromise and you cannot always get the desired look in all parts of the area to be tiled but this dilemma is proving one I am not sure which is the best way to proceed.Creamery Floor Plans - Archive.pdf
