Tiles (part three)?

"Hi" again,
Now that you have finished your kitchen, I bet you are happy.
I think it looks much better if you run your new tiles in line.
even if your room is a little off center, people tend to
follow the lines with their eyes and if the furniture is also
in line it looks that little extra.
If your family room is a little off center it will not be seen
too much, around the door way is important ( if you are using the
same tiles, no problem), if the family room tiles are larger/smaller
then forget lining up.
Find the center of your room ( but you know this already) you've done
it before, do what you did before "make sure all the cement bed under
the tiles is good ( ie: when the kids run across the room you dont hear
a drum solo".
Important: if you are using other tiles, across the doorway lay a brass/messing
strip between the door jambs this will cover where the tiles meet.
The brass strip "must" be in line with the door,
run your eye along the door and the brass strip they should be straight.
"Have fun"
