I am going to tile my kitchen tomorrow and have laid out some tiles tonight, to get an idea. I have an issue with the window sill. 2 whole tiles leave approx an inch gap before the window frame. What is the best solution to this issue? I am assuming cutting under an inch of tile to fill the gap will just break in the process.

If you are not comfortable making the small cuts put a half tile in first then your cuts to the back will be bigger

As Albert says, doesn't need to be a full tile on the top or reveal
