Should I tile straight or on the diagonal?

15 years ago

The tile man is coming tomorrow. I have bought 12 by 12 tiles. Everyone keeps telling me to tile on the diagonal, but it seems like the tile would have to be cut more that way and it just wouldn't look as good. It's a small powder room by the way, only about 6 by 7 feet. I like a classic, timeless look. The bathroom will open up to the den and kitchen, which have hardwood floors. What do you think....straight or diagonal? I've already laid the tiles out both ways and just can't seem to make a decision. Help!!!
