Tile comes in various patterns, sizes and formats to choose from. Standard format tile comes in square or rectangle and is usually under 12x12 in size. Anything over 12x12 is considered a large format tile. There is also mosaic format tile that is small pieces of tile held together on a sheet. While any of these tile formats can be applied anywhere, a larger format is more common for the floor, while mosaic tiles are used in smaller areas like backsplashes or a fireplace. Within Specialty Tile, we carry 112 Standard and 28 Large Format tiles.
