Botella™ Shimmering Glacier Mosaic Tile is rated
Rated 1 out of
These were very hard to install as the brown paper backing is on the 'right' side and so when you apply them to the wall you cannot see how straight they are etc. You have to wait for the tile adhesive to set, before laboriously sponging off the brown paper covering. The tiles were razor sharp where they were cut to fit so I ended up with small cuts all over my fingers. Also, they don't come in a nice square sheet - the edges are stepped (so go in and out if that makes sense) - this meant the tiles had to be hand cut on each individual tile to make a neat join in the corner of the wall. The colours were not as shimmery as the photographs (or indeed the tile sample I saw in the shop). The only reason I gave a good quality mark is because the tiles feel lovely and clean up reasonably well. I am disappointed with this and feel that if they weren't so expensive, I'd have thrown them away and got a different design. What was supposed to be a simple half hour job (its only for a tiled splash back in a cloakroom) turned into several hours work!
