we love le sol terracotta tile for its character, durability—and its design versatility.

while some are drawn to its classic motifs (star + cross for example) we’re big fans of giving this most ancient of materials the ultimate modern expression. so we’re provided you with a couple of useful blueprints for installing le sol: one for the pairing of planks and rectangles, and a second blueprint featuring the rectangle with a wide, chunky grout line.

le sol grand 2”x8” and 4”x8” mixed install

  1. purchase two 84 piece boxes of 2”x8” planks, and ten 42 piece boxes of 4”x8” rectangles, for a total of 588 pieces.
  2. using the alternating grout joint size of 1” and ½” shown below, the 588 pieces will create 42 of the 14 piece layouts shown below, and cover a total of 133 sqft.
  3. note that the arrangement shown below can be mirrored or flipped top to bottom in order to create a random look within your layout.
    note: we highly recommend your contractor do a test board for you prior to install so you can review and approve the layout.

le sol grand 6”x8” wide grout joint layout

  1. purchase two 28 piece boxes of 6”x8” rectangles for a total of 56 pieces.
  2. using the wide grout joint shown below of 2”, the 56 pieces will cover a total of 24 sqft.
