We have been affiliated with Angie's List since 2008 and appreciate the partnership that has been established. This week they published a new article about the cost of installing bathroom tile that, while very helpful and informative, might contain a bit of sticker shock for those of us in the midwest. It seems most of their interview subjects we either from New England or the west coast, but probably the most helpful quote was this one from a professional tile installer in Minneapolis, Andrew Forsmark, who offered, "A general rule of thumb is that the smaller the tile, the more expensive it will cost to install. If I’m using a 6-by-6 [inch] ceramic tile, just plain, straight up and down, that’s very fast. If I do a three different design shower, with a 12-by-12 staggered on the bottom, a border in the middle and a 6-by-6 at a diagonal on the top, ... that just doubled my work.”
