The amount of waste will differ depending upon the size and configuration of the area in question. While we recommend strongly that the person who is installing should provide this figure, if you are installing the tile yourself this may create a slight problem if you are uncertain. Waste in a tiled area will most commonly fall between 5%-15% depending on a variety of factors. For the "do-it-yourselfer", we would recommend 10% when laying the tile straight and 15% if placing the tile on a 45 degree angle.
Most "wall" tiles are fired in the kiln at a lower temperature than "floor" tiles. This is done to create a nicer, more aesthetically pleasing finish while compromising on the strength of the tile. Essentially, this means that there is a much higher risk of damaging the tile on your floor if it is a "wall" tile, even under relatively "low" traffic.
