Tile Layout - Small L-Shaped Powder Room


All:

Would appreciate your opinion on the layouts I have drafted for my small L-shaped powder room. Tiles are 12x24 porcelain. I have attached two pictures of the room and 4 layouts: Straight, staggered, herringbone, and bias. Appreciate opinions on the right choice. Don't factor in time and materials because it's a really small room, I already have plenty of tile, and my time isn't all that valuable.

I would run them with the legnth of the room as you enter, in a staggered/brick pattern.

I love herringbone, but that’s a tight area.

FWIW, I think that tile is too big for the room and will make it look even smaller. That said, I like to do dry layouts until I find the look I like best.

Re: Tile Layout - Small L-Shaped Powder Room


I like the bias the last picture. When doing bathrooms I always juggle the pattern if I can so the toilet cut out is at the corners of the tile just for easier cutting out for the flange.

Re: Tile Layout - Small L-Shaped Powder Room


Thanks to all for their replies. I believe those who post a question and get free advice should do the community the common courtesy of posting how you used the advice and the outcome. So here's what I ended up with. Straight lines and no overlap.
