Tile layout and estimates
  • How do you estimate how many 6x6 tiles you would need to complete the spiral design (I need 175 12x12 to complete the floor for the straight pattern). Also how/where do you start the spiral design.

    SnapStone reply:
    If you use 12x12 and 6x6 you should be fine, depending on the layout.

    I found starting in the center of the room assembling a section and moving it around to find the best balance works best for me.

    Remember to layout the floor so you have at least 2 tabs on the tiles.

    Good luck. It's a great looking pattern when you're done. send photos.

    I'm also planning a pattern with 12x12 and 6x6 tiles. I found it helpful to draw out my pattern on graph paper scaled to the size of the room. It'll make an instant reference when I'm laying out the tile. I did buy some extra tile for scrap and replacement, but with the drawing I could count how many tiles of each type it should take.
