Detailed or Raised Tile Patterns
Q. Why do tile experts recommend that a detailed/raised tile pattern be stopped prior to the door area?
A. Detailed tile usually sits higher than a field tile. The height difference can create obvious issues when placed on a wall where hinges may be used. Stopping the detail pattern before the door area will ensure that the higher tile does not affect the potential use of hinges in that area. That being said, detail tiles can be notched out for glass or u channel in places where stationary panels will be.
