Laundry Room floor tile shape and direction?

Tiling floor with Shaw tile Classico which is a clean looking almost marble type look and would like to know if using a 12 x 24 tile will work in this space - could use 13 x 13 but like the plank look and would like to have it run long ways the length of the room. With all of the angles do you think it will look ok? suggestions on layout - offset? Attaching a picture of the hallway outside the laundry, which is in the open door on the right.

i feel like that angle would be a bear to cut no matter what tile you lay. that's such an odd shaped room.

For sure you can go with the plank flooring, running lengthways. As stated above, tiles are going to be cut anyways, so what difference will It make. Did you combine laundry room and washroom? Too bad you didn't put a door on toilet.

I know it is a strange room but the toilet is an "extra" right off the garage and has been great to have when coming in from the outside. No room for a door.

Want to use same tile for a Jack and Jill bathroom where there currently is carpet in front of the both vanities and the tile in tub area needs to be replaced. Would this area be best with the 13 x 13- or plank? And how would you lay it- not offset, not diagonal but just straight? Thanks.

The 12x24 will really update that room. I have a weird powder room, sometimes you just have to make do for the sake of convenience!

I agree, I believe the 12 x 24 will update it and add some visual interest to space! Actually I would do the staggered tile pattern because I like the continuous feeling it gives off while connecting the tub area with vanity area. I feel the diagonal or grid pattern would not have a great impact to updating the space. Oh, and 12 x 24 for the laundry room too!

Thanks all. Ok 12 x 24 is it-- So there are 2 vanities and the tile would go like in the attached for the bath and for the laundry? I have told that generally people are using wood trim rather than tile bullnose for areas like around the toilet. Is that true in general? This is very helpful, Thanks.
