Ordering Tiles

Recommended Posts

The tight area for the floor in our room to be tiled is 34.2m2 the tiles are 800 x 800 how much should I allow over for cuts etc, the tiles are readily available should I need a few more at the end.

10% is norm for cuts and breakages. 

Careful planning of your tiling layout is though also key so you minimise cuts/wastage. 

All the tiling suppliers I've used in the past will take back unopened boxes which would be my preference over finding theyre out of stock or the batch changes resulting in a shade difference. 

Personally I like to keep a number of tiles as "spares" once the job is complete. In a few years time you have a breakage/crack/chip you'll be glad you did.

Definitely keep a few spare tiles - under the bath (if fitted with side panel) is a good place to keep them.

 

Most places offer returns within 60 days if unused etc.
