I removed my carpet and about to lay tile in the living room with 16x16 size tile. The entry way was different 8x8 tile in there. Do I lay the tile next the old one(with a grout line) or do I put in a wood strip to offset the tile? At the same time, the room has sliding glass doors where the threshold is 1" below the concret floor wher I am laying the tile. Would the tile go to the edge or should I put a wood trim peice there also?

These are great questions. All related to your personal preference.Personally I like the decorative ceramic borders in between. You are going to a much larger tile, and therefore not trying to make it blend. So I suggest you find the one you like and impliment it in the door way.
