direction of laying out ceramic 12x24 tile
i am planning to lay out 12x24 inch tile in a brick pattern in a walk out basement. should i lay it out so that the brick pattern is horizontal when you enter the front door or the 24 inch runs vertically?

And the answer is.........either.

Generally, you will lay the long length of the tile across the short length of the room, or an area of the room that you want to appear to be longer. But it's not a set-in-stone-rule as a varied shape room can change how the tile looks.
