I have some 13 and 1/4 inch square ceramic tile that I'd like to have a contractor set in a hallway. However, three tiles across falls just short of spanning the width of the hallway, even using "fat" joints between the tiles. What's good tile pattern for the hallway that doesn't require a large amount of labor to set?
The tile will also be used to make a tile baseboard along the hall. I'd prefer a design that does not have a joint going exactly down the middle of the hallway.
A diagonal pattern would look fine, but I have the impression that it requires a lot of labor.
