how to get a start a straight line for tiling
Walls or floor?
Typically a chalk line is used to snap a straight line down the center of the room----then a measurement is made of the tile --plus one grout line-(actually two tiles and two grout lines-) and that measurement is used to make a line near the wall---
If the second line is 1/2 of a tile or larger--you are good in that direction---
If it is less than 1/2 of a tile---move the center line over by 1/2 tile and use that line to measure over towards the wall----
Once that line is complete---repeat the process in the other direction---
