You main field tile is almost similar to what we did. did you think about throwing in a different accented tile in a few spots to break it up. This is what we did.

What are the best screws to get to secure the flange to the floor?

I used the tile bits to drill pilot holes thru the tile then #12 flat head wood screws to go into subfloor.

Im assuming your subfloor is wood or on you on a slab?

You're right. I also had an easier cut as I went around the flange so much larger radius.
Some of the tiles were dusty in the pic.

When I go to grout the tiles, should I grout the line between the tile and the pan? Or should I leave that alone and just fill it with caulk?

Either or.

Some say use caulk because it will have a little flexibility against the 4" riser coming up. Either way you want something in case of a leak you dont want the water seeping under.

My install was a little different. I had to reposition some drainage below so when I removed everything for the tile guy I just left everything open(but plugged like below) until he was done.

In post 71 you can see the tile guy just did around the hole in the first floor bathroom for the toilet. I installed the long sweep 90 into the flange after the tile was set.

Just a tip for what its worth. Use the 5/16" hold down bolts for the toilet to flange. They are a little bit meatier than the 1/4" ones and maybe a dollar or two more expensive.

Secure the bolts to the flange with xtra washers and bolts. This way the bolts are secure and wont move around when setting the bowl.
