Non-standard length creates problems.
We bought these tiles, along with the Compliments Classic Trim that is advertised to go with the Diamanté range. What is not immediately obvious, given that the unbevelled version of this tile is 30cm, is that these are actually 3mm shorter than the trim that’s supposed to match them. The colour too is a different tone of white to the ‘matching’ trim.
The box they come in says they’re 30cm, but they’re actually 29.7cm. You’d think the tiles in this range & the matching trims would be the same length, whether bevelled or not. This minor difference in length between the tiles & the trim actually has quite an impact. As the tiling progresses, the trim becomes increasingly more staggered against the brick-bond effect - creating an uneven finish. All of the trims we bought had to be cut down to match, adding further time & cost to the job. I feel the promotion of this is misleading & the sizing an oversight in design that creates a costly & time-consuming nuisance when the products are bought together. The tiles in their own right are good, but think carefully if buying the trims too.
