My husband is getting ready to lay tile in a new pantry, laundry room and hallway. All are connected and we will use the same tile for all. I know that you are supposed to start at the center point of a room to set tile, but what if you have two rooms with doors and a hallway? Should we tile in one continuous shot without thresh holds under doors? Where do we begin to figure out our starting point if we don't need thresh holds?

I put thresholds down, it can depend upon the look
My bathroom threshold is even with the floor
I hate raised ones that you can trip over

When tiling my bathroom & hallway (2 different tiles) I started in the area that would be most visible. The cut tiles ended up under the toe kick of the vanity & around the toilet

The long hallway I started against one wall
There are cut tiles against one side only
Some people like the look of the tile centered & cut tiles on either side
But I lined it up based on the larger hallway at the end of the long hallway

Every job is unique and there may be several "correct" ways to do each installation.

An accurate sketch with measurements would help here.

My first, and only, tile job thus far was our remodeled kitchen. It came out to around 148 or so square feet. I laid out different courses of tile, with appropriate grout line spacing, to see where the cuts would be made. I also too into account how the tile would be viewed when entering the kitchen. In the end, I started at the largest wall opposite the entrances (outside wall with two windows) and going inward.

My main goal was to keep from having lots of small slivers visible. It turned out great.
