Rectangle tile direction help!

Hello! Which direction should I put my 12x24 tile? The adjacent room has wood planks going in the opposite direction of how I would like to lay the tile. There is a open doorway between the rooms. Would choice A or B be better?

choice b
choice A

    What does the tile you want to use look like? That may affect the answer.

    I think I like A better.

    Can you lay a few tiles down at the doorway between the rooms for a visual??

  • Krysta K

    The current tile is marble and we are using luxury vinyl over the marble tile. Here are some pictures of “A” in the staggered pattern we will lay it in.

    Here is “B” and some general pictures of the kitchen

    Ceiling has its own direction - when you have laid the tile on floor, how does it seem with ceiling [same direction, and not same]?

  • Krysta K

    Everdebz- interesting point! The tile would be in the same direction as the ceiling with choice B (which is also the same direction as the wood floor in adjacent room).

    I'm choosing B because of the ceiling direction.

    b goes better with ceiling and adjacent room. when i see it laid out for real, B is better.

    Thank you everyone for your help! We went with B! And we are so happy!

    Here is another picture so you can see the transition between the rooms. The transition piece doesn’t match the wood floor perfectly and will be changed!
