How to Tile with Metro Tiles
There are a few key facts to consider when you’re thinking about how to tile with metro tiles.
First of all, work out the area you are going to tile, and decide which direction you would like your metros to go. Will you go for a standard brick effect, go vertical, or opt for a funky herringbone or block option?
The standard size of a metro tile Is 20cm x 10cm, but 30cm x 10cm metros are emerging as a favourite choice if you want a slightly longer look. There are other slight variations of size. Just remember if you’re using a herringbone layout your tile’s height should be divisible by its width, otherwise the design won’t work.
Always add on a small percentage for wastage, as there might be several cuts needed.
