Years ago, 12”x12” tile was considered large… not anymore. Now tile dimensions often go up to 24”x24”, although the 18”x18” seem the most flexible to use. Why did people gravitate to larger tiles? Because there are less grout lines to cut up the space and distract you from the overall beauty of the floor.
It’s important to consider the size of your room when choosing a large format tile, and also the tile design layout. If there are too many awkward cuts needed, then go with a smaller tile. One rule of to remember – if you use large format tiles on the floor, do not use them on the walls. The overall proportions will be out of balance and diminish the stunning design of the large format tile floors.
