(Also see Type and Size of Tile)

Today’s tiles come in a variety of types, sizes and shapes, and there are thousands of different tiles on the market to meet a wide assortment of tastes, budgets and styles.

For this reason, it is always a good idea to create a sample board (mock-up) with the tile and grout that has been selected.
