I am redoing my kitchen and I'm considering using a large tile size. Are 2 foot by 2 foot tiles difficult to work with? Will I run into problems with size limitations of the tools I'm using and layout difficulties? I'll be working in my galley kitchen which is about 6 feet by 10 feet. I thought the bigger tiles would result in the least amount of grout lines, which is something which appeals to me.
Are there other factors such as tile material that I should consider as well? Are some types of tile easier to maintain than others?
