Tile patterns

Can I install tile with one side 15" and greater in any pattern, be it a brick pattern or an offset pattern. I understand about the 33% offset but it there any standard that states the joints have to be staggered on floor tile?

Welcome back, Sam.

If the manufacturer suggests a certain offset, such as 1/3, that would apply to all applications, be it floor or wall.

Does the pattern "have to be staggered?" No, not at all. The industry standard or manufacturer's recommendation of 33 percent offset applies only if you elect to have an offset pattern.

Are you wanting to just do like a stack pattern on the floor?
