Layout 12 x 24 tiles

Hi guys, Im about to renovate my bathroom and installing 12x24 tiles stacked in shower, they are a bit bowed so dont want a brick pattern.
My walls are left and right 49 and back wall 35
My question is where do I start or lay them out to get biggest possible pieces without leaving a 3 piecein the corner.
Any help appreciated.

We always do what Mrs Ermano wants

Instead of a 3 incher above and a 15 incher below, slide the while pattern over 1/4 tile (or 6 inches in your case) to have a 9 incher above and a 21 incher below.

For when DIY isn't such a good idea...

Where's the 3" coming from?

Where's the above and below coming from?

On the 49" wall, wouldn't a full tile in the middle give you 25" remaining and you do 12.5" on either side?

On the 35" wall, a full tile in the middle gives you 11" remaining which means a 5.5" tile on either side. Not saying that how to do it but isn't the math? So not sure where all these other numbers are coming from.

Unless you meant stacked the other way, but even then you get 3 tiles across that 35" wall. On the 49" wall you could center the tile, giving you 18.5" on either side which would be a tile and a half.

Maybe I'm just misunderstanding the question.

Guess thats the best way to go, I was hoping to get as many full tiles as possible on the walls. Thanks

I am assuming you are going horizontally? Have you considered running them veritcally?
