Looking for a tile layout planning/design guide

I came across this quick guide

https://www.wikihow.com/Plan-Tile-Layout

Are there more detailed resources that I can read?

Thanks

What are you trying to do? Just calculate how much tile you need for a simple area, or layout a more complex tile design with patterns and different tiles?

If it's just for a simple area, usually the area + 10% for waste is what most tilers will go with. Round up for number of boxes, for a smaller room you may need to carry more for waste.

2019 or newer edition of TCNA Handbook For Ceramic, Glass, and Stone Tile Installation seems to be a useful book

No the amount of tiles is determined covered
This is about how to aesthetically place them, where to start (from the middle of certain areas)
This is for a wall in my case

the edging trim applied on the corners around the window looks bad (see 35'22'')
