    This makes no sense to me. Perhaps more context would help.

    Re: bigger deal than they are

    The original tiles are square shape with 90 degree corners. The new tiles are curved at the corners.

    "The curved edges would be a bigger deal than they are." is describing the new tiles.

    I think it is saying that there is a problem with the new tiles as the curved corners are a problem when the tiles are placed side by side and there are gaps because of the curve

    It still doesn't make sense to me.
