We have these, I fitted them extremely hard to cut. Borrowed my dad's professional tile cutter... You need a proper tile cutter (£300+) and tile saw for these, they are thick. Below is my first job, reccomend people get a proper laser level too, not bad for an office boy 😁

Use decent adhesive and grout and your good to go.
MAPEI is one of the best around

I had zero experience and stripped and tiled the whole of my main bathroom floor to ceiling. I work in an office and wouldn't say I'm great at DIY but tiling imo is not rocket science and the skill develops as you go. Biggest issue for me was the walls being so far out it was stupid and I'm sure that's where the skill of a tiler comes in. Takes lot longer than you would expect , I used ceramic tiles so they weren't as nice as these. I used quality adhesive and grout which helped.

We used these in our bathroom, fantastic tiles for the money
I'm so tempted to get these cant afford ATM though great spot op
We used these I our bathroom too, tiler said they were great quality for the money although they were a little hard so he went through a few drill bits fitting the shower and rails etc.

Would buy again in a heartbeat at this price. Theres 2 colours of the Everest on the website and one is always on offer then they switch. Wickes seem to do a 15% off flooring every month if you spend over £75 with free delivery too, what's not to like!
Seen these a couple of years ago and have been told by a decent tiler they’re excellent quality for the price! Unfortunately I don’t currently have any use for these but amazing offer! I’ve seen them in store before and they’re a lovely shade of grey also!
Thanks had been looking for nice tiles

OOS for home delivery now and no shops near me
Just been the shop and bought 28 packs of these and got 15% off so they must be doing a similar deal as the laminate a few weeks ago where you spend £100 and get 15% off. I also got given another 15% off voucher to use before 16th June when I spend £10 or more

Thank you for detailed response.


You need the tools though and they can add up. I don't have much faith in tradesman so decide to do it myself and as I say cutting, measuring, gluing tiles is not difficult and my finish is on a par with a pro imo, and others. Planning is key, not rushing and learning as you go
Typical. I need some of the everest stone to finish off a pantry floor.

How did you get the 15% off?
Hjbevan12306/06/2019 19:04

I'm not sure, the lady at checkout just said that I got an extra 15% off. They had an offer on laminate a couple of weeks ago, 15% off when spending oer £100 so I'm assuming there was a similar deal on but I could be wrong. There were no signs or anything as far as I noticed so it was a nice surprise for me at the till.
If anyone has tiled both walls and floor does it look as nice as the picture?.... I'm about to order as I love the tiles but just hoping it's not too much? Thanks

I went on a tiling course and it was much easier than I thought. Just need the right tools like you said, and patience.

Mine looks lovely. I get so many positive comments from people. I used a different grout on the floor to what I did on the walls and three years on looks great.
Anyone tried them outside? They would do perfectly as a coping for my feature walling

Hi yes, they are a nightmare to cut, you will need an electric grinder. They are quite easy to lay and fit due to the size just use the spacers. Also use self leveller on the floor and make sure your walls are flat and smooth.

Yeah the bigger tiles aren't so hard. My dad's giving me a hand, he's experience, but there's nothing involved that you need experience for. As long as you've a week free and a bit of patience.

Mapei Rapid Set Adhesive from Screwfix is only £13.99 for 20kg at the moment. You'll also need a tile cutter (I got an electric one at Toolstation for the smaller cuts and a 600mm one from VonHaus). There's a decent video in YouTube from B&Q or Homebase on the basics.

I've cut these with a 600mm hand tile cutter from VonHaus, not difficult at all.

We re did our whole bathroom in these (about 48sqm) and just like to point out a couple of things which others have too. They are very hard to cut, most tilers may increase their per sqm charge for cutting porcelain tiles and you might end up with some wastage due to them shattering. Most of mine had a slight bow in them but other than that the Mrs was happy with the result!

A few tips as also a DIY tiler!!
1. Get a wet electric tile saw..even the cheapest ones. You really minimise waste due to cutting wrong. Using the snapping things is trickier and much less flexible. Has been snapping the things for ages until somebody lent me one of these and it was revolutionary.
2. Get a good set of tile drill bits
3. Recommend especially if in a wet area tiling onto cement faced XPS boards. Marmox is the brand but no brand versions available eg eBay which are better than nothing by a long shot. Provides water proof backing behind. Also a flat surface which means the tiles are much more easy to get evenly positioned. In any event take time preparing the surface if you want them to look flat.
4. Measure out and plan where each tile is going to go to avoid having to make annoyingly sized or positioned cuts later
5. Put adhesive to the wall with the right sized notched trowel, this makes sure it is the right depth and is evenly spread.
6. Take your time. It's fine if your a competent DIY er but a proper tiler will be much quicker. Also I think it's really hard to make them look absolutely perfect as a DIYer (but equally you get better with practice)
Good luck!!
Oh and tile up from a batten!

Takes lot longer than you would expect , I used ceramic tiles so they weren't as nice as these. I used quality adhesive and grout which helped.


Just to add I did my own bathroom (the whole room) recently with no experience (have a builder in the family that gave me some instructions on how to get going). The big tiles are good to get to grips with but you need a pretty strong tile adhesive. I tried one brand and I had to stand their holding the tile for about 5 minutes before it stuck. Whereas another brand would hold after patting the tile down immediately with a big of wiggle room for adjustment. I would suggest the BAL Green Star stuff as the Unibond stuff I tried wasn't very strong (more fluid like) and some of the larger tiles I ended up pulling off as they didn't hold properly.

Make sure you get a proper straight edge tile cutter and a self levelling laser is worthwhile (or borrow one). However, please note these size tiles do not fit a lot of the tile cutters so when I had to cut horizontally length-wise I had to borrow a diamond blade water cutter as the tiles simply wouldn't fit in the tile cutter I had, so if you do buy one, buy one bigger than the tiles you are using.

Also plan your placement in advance to avoid weird cuts. I ended up with a few small cuts at corners, but at least they were symmetrical across the walls. Don't just start in a corner and tile along until you hit another wall.

The results of my first attempt are below. I'm pretty pleased overall.
