Designing a layout with Terra Firma tile is very straight forward. Since the actual size of the tile is 3/16 inch less than the stated nominal size to include space for a 3/16 inch grout joint, using graph paper to layout the installation is quite easy. If a non-standard size field tile is needed, simply order the next largest size, specify the size required and the standard size can be cut down to fit. We prefer to special cut to size before the tile is glazed so that all edges will be consistent.

Any field tile edge may be bullnosed or edge glazed. If a field tile edge will be exposed, such as on the tile surrounding a firebox opening, specify either edge glazing or bullnosing for that edge. All decorative relief and moulding tile have all edges glazed automatically.
