One thing to keep in mind is where will the plumbing needs to go for the shower. If you end up needing to make a run right through the center of your tile, it might not be worth it to buy extra. It might be easier to rip it all out and start over. If you haven't already done so, it would be worth it to have a plumber come in to determine your plumbing run for the shower. While there might be plumbing close to your intended shower location, code may require an independent run or larger pipe be run.
