A couple of bathrooms near Biggin Hill, earlier this year.
Porcelanosa Karla range 2.4 x 1.2 x 6mm
More complicated than it actually looks, the tolerance for this range is up to a 30mm pattern miss match, and believe me they used every mm within that range. Tops would meet but not bottom veins, or vice versa, it was just slight of hand that made it work.
And some of the pattern matching is not how it is intended, but it works better.

There's a thread in the arms that I thought should have some of the pics shared publicly. So here's the thread. Feel free to post away! :)
Not been on here for a while. ( odd time lurking). It’s all gong complicated, and can’t work out how to post a thread.

Orange "Post thread" button at the top of the homepage. It's one button. Way easier than the old forum. It's just different that's all. :)

Nice to see you around matey.

Ok! So this will NOT be to everyone’s taste.
But what you need to keep in mind is that this is a RANDOM pattern selection.
IT DOES NOT pattern match.
But there are some ‘pairs’ of tiles.
1200 x 1200 x 6mm
The remit was to form a border around a central carpet, these pieces go only one way, they’re not designed to turn corners, however I did my best to give the client what she wanted.
She is overjoyed with the result, me, not so much haha
Just thought I’d see how it was received in here. :D
Just glad the dislike button has gone! :D:D

As a footnote,
I tried all 46 pieces available to me and this was the best 20.
And @Tony_C there are 6 closers contained within the border. :)

Pattern going the other way, outward on all sides rather than going round?

Looks good tho, you can only do what the tiles will allow ey

@Localtiler @JulianSidney
Yeah good idea.
Only thing here is that this is part of 140m2 floor and there are large double doors either side of lounge, and both join the main floor.
So where the lounge meets both areas either side it runs in keeping with the main floor.
Turning them all ‘outward’ would go against run of main floor.
I’m not saying you’re wrong tho, appreciate your opinion, thanks.
