12x24 layout

What is the recommended layout for large format tile in a business restroom? The same 12x24 tile is being used for the floor and the wall wainscot ( 48 in ). The room size is 6 ft by 8 ft with the door on a 8 ft wall and the vanity/stool against the 6 ft wall.

Most time an offset of no more than 33% if staggering or just straight lay. If the tile is very flat you may be able to do a 50% offset.

12x24 layout

Would you use different patterns for the walls and floor such as straight lay on floor and 33 percent on walls?

Installer's choice?

33% offest on the floors, center and balanced grid on the walls. I always push for that recommendation for ease of layout and grout joint alignment.

I have those AT&T restroom photos here somewhere...

Yeah, I would know the pattern before I start the job. Someone in charge will need to tell me what pattern to install. And the grout color, etc.

Question 12 x 24 layout

Erin,

Thank you for the response. What do you mean by "center and balanced grid"?

Either joint on center, or tile on center, with grout joints aligning with no less than 1/2 of the tile as a cut (walls) and 33% on the floors.

This is fine. Sometimes this can free you from lining up the wall tile with the floor tile pattern. Although, if it's the same tile, then it will be difficult to not have parts of the floor carry over to the walls.

This is where going with two completely different sizes can be of assistance.
