Victorian Black/White Chequer Tile is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great look but difficult to clean. I have always loved Victorian tiles so decided to bite the bullet and tile my entrance hall. Having never tiled anywhere before I was worried that I would make a mistake with measuring, tile positioning or/and pattern. As it turned out, it wasn’t as complicated as it seemed, but I would definitely recommend planning the pattern out on paper first to save on errors and time. After looking online for an ‘order of events’ I soon realised that I needed to level the floor before I could start. After returning from the shop after forgetting the levelling mix, I decided I didn’t need it. To get around the uneven floor I decided to fill the uneven sections of the floor with tile adhesive/grout ahead of tiling. This (surprisingly) appears to have worked. The first tiles that I placed were the border tiles. I opted for a white border as my aim was to do the job as cheaply as I could, and the official border tiles cost a little more than the plain white. The border is the most important part of the whole process. I would constantly check the distance between the border on the left of the room with the right to ensure it wasn’t starting to run out. Once the border has been placed, the rest is much simpler, as you just need to fill the space with the mesh tiles. There was an added benefit to using lots of adhesive/grout to level the floor. When pressing the tiles down the adhesive/grout would press through the tile spaces causing them to grout themselves. I filled the main body of the floor with the tiles in a diamond position, occasionally cutting tiles in half to keep the pattern along the border edge. As I used an electric tile cutter that had a water tray to cool and clean, the mesh that held the tiles together fell apart due to coming in contact with the water. I pressed the tiles down using a spirit level so I could ensure they were all level. Just before I finished the main tiling, I decided to create a number ‘4’ (my door number) inside a border just in line with my front door. I’m really happy with the results, but as you can see in the image, I’ve found it difficult to remove the excess grout. I have since purchased extra strength grout remover which seems to be helping, but it’s definitely going to take some time and effort to clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to lay After contacting various company's to have my horrible concrete path tiled, and after either breaking out in a cold sweat of fainting each time they gave me their very best quote, I decided to have a go myself. I found these tiles to be the cheapest by far and when they arrive I was pleasantly surprised how good they looked. I layed them myself after much marking out and measuring and I have to say they don't look bad. They come joined together on a mesh so they can be layed quite quickly, you will probably have to cut some of the corners to make them line up unless you are very lucky. The only thing that you should be aware of is the white tile are not a brilliant white and that if you get the mesh that they are fixed to wet the tiles will fall off. It was my first purchase from topps and I have to say the staff at my local store in Gravesend were fantastic, friendly, polite, informative, they lumped my deliverys of tiles, grout, adhesive together so that it would save me delivery costs and when I discovered I had ordered to many tiles they took the remainder back even coming out to my car with a sack borrow. Top marks and thank you
