I have a small area between the tub and carpet I wish to tile with 12" x 12" vinyl.

The area is a trapezoid 5 feet long next to the tub, 37" long next to the carpet, and 21" wide.

What is the proper tile layout?

One option is to lay as many whole tiles in the center as I can, then trim out. The second would be lay whole tiles next to the tub and trim out. Maybe there is a third?

Thanks.

Slight problem - the tub is not in square.

The left (front) part of the tub is about 1 1/2" further out from the wall than the right side.

Village Builders, actually.

That's what I did. I put whole tiles and trimed around. I figure having two tiles a half inch bigger is less noticeable than one tile one inch bigger.
