    should be about £240 for 360 tiles
    how much is your 20 metres squared in total?

    360 tiles at 81 would be nearer £300?

    i wouldnt need that many tiles, the 83p ones are 12 tiles to a sq metre so £189.24 although i think i may be able to get them down to 80p so £182.40, but as thats a big chunk out of my budget was hoping i would be able to get them cheaper:oops:

    My OH is a tiler......he says not to get tiles from B&Q,because anytime he has worked with them it has been a nightmare! Tiles are different sizes and different depths creating lippage.He has never had a problem with Topps tiles and would always recommend them to his customers.

    Yes,tiling can be an expensive job,but sometimes saving a few quid is not really worth it....why spoil the ship for a ha'porth of tar!

    thank you muckypup, could you give him another jab and ask him if the tiles im going for are too big for a bathroom, as two have mentioned they are, thanks :thumbsup:

    If they are wall tiles and sold as such they should be ok.He's just gone out again:roll:....never around when you need 'em,but will get some advice for you later(it may be in the morning now!)

    As far as i know,from what he has said in the past,you need to make sure you get the correct adheshive,with them being a larger tile,to make sure they stay stuck to the wall.In fact he much prefers to work with larger tiles than smaller ones,the job gets done much quicker and there are less cuts to do.

    not too much help for you now,but I will get back to you with some more info:)

    thanks muckypup, im gonna ht the sack soon, so will check in tomorrow, thank you everyone for all our help and advise :thumbsup:

    Sassie,
    Had a word with OH,the tiles(size wise) are fine for walls so long as they are not being put on freshly skimmed or plastered walls.Standard adhesive is fine also and use spacers of at least 2mm(can be bigger,it's whatever you prefer)

    Any other questions,just ask:)

    thanks muckypup, some of the tiles will be on newly plastered bits, but not full walls just bits where old bath, sink and loo where pulled out and wall was pulled down, so nat massive areas, i think i have decided to stay with toppstiles and gonna have a bash at getting a bit more knocked off for buying alot - lol I forgot to budget in for tiles so was just seeing if i could have got a better deal, thanks to you and mrmuckypup for youe help and advise:thumbsup:

    No worries,he says to let the new plaster dry out for as long as you can hold off,but as it's not a full wall should be ok(summat to do with the load per sq.metre that freshly plastered walls can take!!!:?)

    Also be prepared for the cost of adhesive and grout,you may need to count to 10!!
