Yes. We recommend ordering a minimum of 15% overage, but sometimes more. If you are ordering a decorative tile, creating a pattern, or planning a more complex layout (like herringbone), you might consider more.
Ordering overage is necessary to accommodate cuts, and avoid add-on orders. Due to the handmade nature of our products, there WILL be variation from batch to batch and lot to lot. We cannot guarantee that additional product ordered at a later date will be an exact match.
If you end up with a little extra, don’t worry! We highly recommend that you keep it. Keeping your extra tile is great insurance in case you ever need to make a repair in the future. It will be much easier and less stressful to use your extra tile than hope we can match it years later.
