Tile size ?

My kitchen is 330 square feet. The tile I like comes in either 20 x 20 or 13 x 13 inches. In your opinion, is a kitchen that is 330 sq feet big enough to have 20 x 20 inch tile installed ? I like the look of the bigger tile, but I am concerned that 20 x 20 may be too big.

Small tiles for small rooms is a dated trend. More people are going with larger tiles in small spaces these days. It mostly depends on what you like. You may find the 20x20 to be a bit too large for your space but you may also like them. The 13x13 would definitely not be too large. The larger the tile the more critical it is to set them level. That is also a consideration.

The larger tiles will make the space appear visually larger, but as stated by others, they are much less forgiving when trying to lay them level over a subfloor that is not flat.
