Tile layout for modern shower and small bathroom.

hellakittyJanuary 14, 2014

Hi Everyone
I cannot express enough how this forum has helped me in my remodeling adventures. I'm stymied at the moment with the tile layout. I want to do a tone on tone glossy white with different size tiles. I have 3 sizes of tile plus a contrasting accent mosaic picked. 8x22, 8x13, 10x24. I have not been able to find images online and would like some help with pictures or thoughts. There are 3 niches in the bathroom and the tile in them will be a white dimensional tile.

The sizes don't work together. You need to use one of those sizes, or pick a tile that the sizes are multiples of each other. Like a 12x24, a 6x12, and a 6x6 and a 3x3. Each larger tile can be divided by each lower size tile to work out an even layout.

One of the short walls ends in a doorway, The other short wall ends with a window. Which is why I thought I could stagger the tile. Still a no?

Agree with using different sizes that are multiples of each other.
