Can subject tile be cut like monocuttura ceramic or are special methods needed? Thank you, Seamus J. Wilson

We have 3 pieces of 18" tile between the tub and the carpet, installed without any space in between. Now we want to do the whole bathroom with the same tile. Can I keep doing it without spacers or I need to remove the 3 tiles and start all over again with the proper spacing (3/8" or so)? thanks

Exact same tile? Yes you can maintain a tight joint install throughout. However it would be much easier for you to remove the 3 pieces and install the entire floor with a c =nice clean 1/16" or 1/8" joint.

Yes, it is the same tile (we just put the 3 or 4 pieces 2 weeks ago). It was leftover from the living room so I just ask the guy to put them in there and remove the vinyl. It looks good but I am afraid how it will look in the whole bathroom; at the same time is not cheap, $1.69 sf, but once again, it's only 3~4 pieces. The whole bathroom is around 70 sf.

Setting with a joint is much more 'forgiving'. About the only material I set and butt tight is marble or granite. I have stacked porcelain tight on a few floors and backsplashes per customer specs. Lay some of them out both ways and see what you prefer.

Diamond saw works but it will chip if you run out of water. Score and snap works.
