    Step marker tile question

    When accent tiles are used on the steps are 2" tiles used more often than say 1". I'm referring to when the tile are placed single and spaced apart. We need to order the tile this week. Going with 6" tile around the perimeter.

    Thanks for any input!

    It's really a personal choice but I think 2" would stand out more and not look as busy. 1" are going to look like a spec in the plaster IMO.

    I like that look, but the "better half" wants individual tiles spaced apart. Thanks for the pic
