    Hi

    I'm tiling the understair toilet and have a small wall that i need to tile.

    the wall is 630mm wide and I've got 300 x 600mm tiles, how can I cut these to make it look nice?

    Will I need to use two tiles per row and have loads of off cuts?

    You could use the 300 as the width and have a 10 mm bold groutline across perfect fit. Also you could have a feature colour grout scheme to contrast the tile colour. Just an idea as I haven’t seen the space you have.

    Never thought of using bigger grout lines. Thanks.

    That's kind of what I did, I made some paper template of the tile and cut it in half, and that seems to look OK.

    If you have enough, could you cut them to 313 and use two to a row putting the cut edges to the walls?

    Also like Stivino said and run an angled bead down each corner to complement the tile colour.
