There is a multitude of ways of cutting tiles, depending on the project at hand. Some of these methods are easy, giving you clean cuts with little mess, while some are, it's fair to say, more labour intensive and disruptive. 

However, it's not a task that you need to be afraid to tackle in most instances, especially when working with smaller tiles where you have some wastage built-in to get to grips with how your cutting method works. However, bear in mind that certain ways of cutting tiles are best suited for different applications, so you'll need to pick the right one for you.
