is hex tile hard to install, labor intensive?

Anon Fromca
last month

I was going to use a hex of 7-8 inches dimension in my 11x6' bathroom. I am wondering if I should back out and replace it with rectangle shape. Some concerns:

- labor cost where I am is expensive. The hex seems to need a lot of precision cuts, and then precision spacing. Is this going to be time consuming to do? It is porcelain, and I heard it is harder to cut.

- I am unsure whether this hex is of the right size for the size of the room

- what to do when we transition to the shower. There is a shower curb, so I guess I can just use small format tile inside the shower?

The floor was going to be my accent floor, with white glossy subway. But now I am unsure. Maybe I need to use rectangular field tile, and then have an accent wall instead..

Thank you!
