Consider the room size and shape when selecting your tiles. A large space such as a kitchen diner will accommodate oversized tiles and accentuate the space. Equally, large tiles in smaller rooms will help give the illusion of space as fewer grout lines help open up the room – even more so when teamed with light tones.

Which way to lay

When considering the size, pattern and style, don’t forget to take into account how you want your tiles to lay. This may be dictated by the tile’s design but is often down to personal preference. There are many different options but we’ve picked the most popular:

• Herringbone – very popular, especially for kitchens

• Straight/linear – simple yet effective, if your tiles have a lot going on then this is a good option

• Brick bond – a timeless style which can be done in different ways depending on the size and position of the tiles.
