Tiling


Lay your tile out on the floor and do some planing ---measure and see what cuts will be at the window and in the corner or open edge. The layout may take a bit of time--but the time is well spent.

Do you math--Mike---

Tiling


How wide is the path of tile that will be under the window?
Is there an apron under the sill as part of the window trim?

Tiling


The window is in the middle of the cabinets and no tile will go under the window the new counter to back splash will go up to the molding. I need to know where to start on the walls on either side of the window. One side goes to the corner and the other side is an open wall with no corner and I want to go to the end of the counter top on that side.

Tiling


Test a layout starting from the window with full tiles and go both directions (from the window) and see where things end-up.
