Hard to install - but probably worth it!
I bought these for a very small bathroom in a Victorian house to mix with Victorian style bathroom fittings - a nice combination of old an new. It looks stunning - but I would suggest you check out with a tiler before you purchase. My builder has never worked with such a big tile (needs wet cutting). His cutter was too small. He rang around to tiler friends. None of them had a cutter for a tile this size. We explored hiring. Eventually hired one that cost £200 a week. It was delivered but so heavy that the builder and mate couldn't lift it (they are very strong) so it was returned. The Topps shop we purchased it from couldn't help us to locate a suitable hire shop. In the end, as the work had started with the placing some of the whole tiles I agreed to go halves with my builder to buy a cutter - £700! I guess it's an incentive to get more of these tiles for another room to recoup some of the cost!
