Floor Tiling Orientation

This is how we’ve decided to lay the floor tiles. The only tiles laid so far are the ones in the bathroom, which are at a slightly higher level than the floor in the rest of the apartment (which is all the same level). In an ideal world the floor there would have been the same level too, and the joint lines would then have needed to mitre perfectly with the ones in the corridor leading to the living room, but the differing height and the fact that we plan to put a bevelled edge between the two floor levels (instead of a step… bearing in mind that we may need to get a wheeled contraption into the bathroom at some point) means that matching the joints is neither easy nor actually critical: the bathroom door will generally be closed and the ramped threshold will tend to disguise any imperfection in the mitreing.

Flat 9 Floor Tile Orientation

There are just three doorways where the orientation of the tiles changes so we can put some brass strip between the adjoining areas. I’d like to fit drop seals to the doors to seal the gap at the bottom, so the floor itself will allow a wheelchair to travel around the apartment virtually unhindered.
