How much extra tile.
 
I am getting ready to order tile for my basement. The tiles are 6 X 24. How much extra should I order?

it depends on how you are laying it. laying on a 45 degree angle uses more tile. normally 10-15 percent depending on how much you waste with bad cuts or mis-measuring.

Tile will not be going at 45 degree angles.

Sure hope that floor is 100% flat. Asking for trouble with tiles that big.
