Would not recommend these tiles. Ordered tiles and paid for them on collection of tiles we were told that we had to use a sealant before grouting, brought two bottles of this and the tiler applied two Coates first of all but the grouting stain the tiles and would not wash off. Tiler applied two more Coates but the same happened, and he spent three days scrubbing and scraping the grout off.
Also brought our measurements into the Denham store before ordering but ended up having to purchase two more boxes.

great tile, looks stunning!
i bought these tiles to create a feature wall in my shower, but I had read through reviews and I was hesitant, as many said they were hard to work with. As this is my first attempt at tiling in my life (a tiler wasn't in our budget), I was almost put off, but I am so so glad I decided to speak as I found.
I am so happy with them and how they turned out, and I have had many compliments about how unique they are. Here is what I found, having never tiled before: I used a wet saw, and they cut surprisingly well, I didn't have any cracked tiles and I kept all my fingers! i used a ready mixed adhesive for large porcelain tiles which worked well. Because the tiles are in a wet area, although they should be butted together, i used a 2mm spacer. Now, i was recommended to use the grout in gunmetal grey, BUT it is way way too light! My advise would be to go the darker grey if you want the grout line as disguised as possible as there is no doubt they would look better if butted together. I had to remedy this with using a grey sealant to make it look tidier. Which would be my last tip, use a grey sealant, as trying to get a seamless look vertically with a white one would be impossible due to the unevenness of the tile, and create a lot of clean up.
Don't be put off with people saying they are hard to work with, I'm so glad i wasn't. Although Ive nothing to compare it to, i didn't find it particularly hard, just time consuming on the wet saw.
i would definitely recommend them!
