I am going to be installing tile in our kitchen and bathroom. I have enough tile for all area plus waste due to cuts and screw ups. After we got the tile home, we decided that a diagonal pattern would look better than just straight. Is there more waste with this type of pattern? The tile I have has to be ordered and takes about 2 weeks to get so I can't start without the proper amount of tile 1st.

Thank-you

Andrew.

yes diagonal patterns can take up more tile with waste depending on the dimensions of your area, paterns, boards, insets, etc.

On average, 15% waste can cover it fo diagonals, leaving some left over for future repairs.

If you want to order it close, map it out on graph paper to scale and count tiles and cuts.
