Opinions on tile job

Hi, Never posted here before but it looks like the right place for my question/concern. I am having basically all my floors redone.So far I have already had the hardwoods installed in the living area and we are now onto the tile(same contractor but different crew). I was hoping someone here would look at the pics of my hall bathroom and give me an opinion on how the inlays were laid out.Personally I think they are so few that it would have been just as well not to do them at all.The pattern doesn't carry out in any type of direction etc.Maybe it is just me but it doesn't look exactly right.This is just my 8x8 hall bath but since they haven't grouted it yet maybe it is not too late to do something about it.They are doing the master next so..... Here is a link to the two pics.I own a pinball restoration company so they are in my gallery nothing to worry about(i.e not spam or a virus).

That looks just plain goofy. Only three pieces? It's not even a pattern.
What did you ask for? If you let him decide on the pattern then there ain't much you can really do without spending more money.

The last guy I fired doing tile I caught him smoking the real stuff, its a good thing I did not let him finish the tile job, many tiles came completely loose. Maybe yours is a crackheads pattern, he cant count over 3 .

Thanks guys.Those were basically my thoughts as well but I didn't know if it was missing something.Doesn't seem like there would be any way this would be desired. They did a great job doing the hardwoods so I had confidence but as I stated it is a different crew for the tile.When they show up to finish it I will let them know not to bother until make some corrections.

Do you have a bid or contract stating what was to be installed in the hall bath? If so, remind the contractor what you agreed to. Looks like they used some leftovers .. not horrible, by any stretch, but certainly looks "accidental". When the commode is replaced, and a small rug in front of vanity, it might look just fine.
Be sure that they don't proceed with any more work until the specs are on paper and signed by both of you. Have you discussed the issue with the contractor? If so, what comments?

It is a bit odd. Maybe they were thinking that you'd have some mats on the floor and additional dots (that's what they're called, not inlays) would be under the mats so they wouldn't be seen - ie, a waste of their time.
Pulling up the tile to add additional dots could cause more problems. That depends on what the tile is laid on, what sort of adhesive they used and how "into it" the tile guys are.
Did you specify or supply the tile dots? If you gave them twenty and they used three, I'd have them do the floor over.

It redirects me and wants me to log in. Please post a better url.
I wouldn't leave the details of pattern picking up to someone else. When you buy original art, you are usually stuck with what you get.
