If you have already started shopping for a new floor, you have probably noticed that most of the tiles that we have today are big. Maybe even too big.
Biggest problem of porcelain industry is the flatness of the tile. In the past, sizes like 24x24 and up were very hard to produce within acceptable flatness limits.
However, more developed methods of today made it possible to produce larger sizes and made it available to everybody. Bigger tile means lesser tiles to install. Lesser tiles mean lesser grout and more seamless floors.
Also please keep in mind that the size of the tile is not relevant to the size of the floor. Because, no matter how big is the tile, it is still much smaller than even your bathroom or kitchen floor.
If we assume that you have 800 sf floor to cover, you need 200 tiles and your floor is 200 times bigger than your tile.
Now lets do some math with same assumption.
If you were to get 18x18 tiles to cover 800 sqf floor area, you were to need 355 tiles to install or 288 pieces of 20x20 tiles.
As there will be grout around every single tile, 18x18 tiles will result almost 100%, 20x20 50% more grout in your floor as
you can see in the example, bigger tiles result in more seamless floors.
