Tile layout in small bathroom


I have 1' X 2' tile which I will be laying horizontally on the floor then into the shower, which is straight ahead of the entrance to the bath. Would the tile look best in a brick pattern or just aligned next to each other?

Brick pattern looks better to me. Are you using the same tile on the walls of the shower? Run the tile lengthwise on the floor, then horizontally on the walls to give more visual interest.

It is very much a matter of opinion.
I would just lay them out on the floor and see what looks best to you.

I know you didn't ask this, but have you tiled much before?
Tiles that large require an absolutely flat surface. Be aware they can be very difficult for a beginner.

Well said--I suggest you read up on tile leveling systems--Lash by QEP is one--Tuscan is another.

You said you were running this into the shower?

What are you doing ,exactly?
