When planning a tile layout you can save a lot of time over traditional methods by using tile layout design software. Once you have your room(s) laid out, the software will let you easily explore the many combinations of tile size and color, layout pattern, grout width and color. The best packages will let you use your own tile images and adjust the tile position. This last feature is important because it lets you avoid slivers of tile that are hard to cut. It also lets you find the most aesthetically pleasing layout for your space. We recommend Precision Tile Pro for it's ease-of-use and low-cost monthly subscription starting at just $20 per month.
