Hi there,

YOU CAN GET ONLY 2 PIECES OUT OF ONE WHOLE TILE

Normal you can get only up to 2 pieces out of a whole tile if you need smaller pieces than the original size.

The reason is that you can only use the edge side of an original tile because the cut edges are not smooth and beautiful.


This means that the more you need to cut tiles the more amount of tiles you have to throw away therefore the more you have to pay the tile cost.

So the point is to reduce the amount of cuts as much as possible.

Good Tile Patterns

Here is an example of a bathroom tile pattern.



You see lots of small pieces on both sides so you expect that there will be some wastes of tiles.

Also a tiler takes time to cut and place these small pieces so you may have to pay more for his labour.

Here is a different pattern in the same bathroom



Now there are less cuts so it will be cheaper and easier for a tiler to cut and place.

He still needs to cut some pieces but these are bigger than the previous example so easier to handle.

Also the tile pattern  looks neat and beautiful.

If you think about tiling somewhere in your home I will recommend that you consider the tile patterns.

こんにちは!

タイル割(タイルのパターン)は建築コストに大きく影響しますので、私たちは常に低コストで美しい最高のタイル割について考えています。

一枚のタイルからは二枚しか取れない!

通常、元のサイズよりも小さいタイルが必要な場合は、一枚のタイルからは最大二枚までしか切って使えません。

その理由は、切断面がスムースではなく、美しくないため、元のタイルの端の部分しか使用できないためです。
