Beautiful tiles, tricky to lay though
I chose these for a new wet room in our loft extension. I used them on the shower floor and as borders/edging for the main tiles - Indus Storm, also from Topps. They're beautiful mosaics, changing colour with the light and giving a rich colour without being too dark. As others have indicated, they are tricky to lay, especially on a gradiated wet room floor, mainly because the paper backing covers the top of the tiles and can only be soaked off once in place, leaving the tiler the tricky job of lining them up properly without being able to see the finished result. And they're expensive. Would still highly recommend them though.

lovely tiles but they should have come with info on fitting
They arent on a mesh like usual mosaics. They have sticky paper backing on and have to be laid on the adhesive before wetting the backing (that covers the outer face of the tiles) and peeling off. There was no indication of this and the first person available at Topps Tiles didnt know how they were laid. The next person did and said that were an American tile that was fitted differently.It would have been good to have been given a leaflet explaining the this. It made them more fiddly to lay. That said they look great and appear to be of good quality.
