TILE PATTERNS TO SAVE COST
Tile patterns affect the building cost so we always think about the best tiling patterns that is low cost and beautiful.
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.
