time consuming and lots of wastage
These tiles may look great, but it took our professional Tiler with over 25 years experience an extra 2.5 days to fit these. Plus the wastage was so great - due to the pattern having to be matched in an exacting way - that the 10% additional we had added didn't even touch the sides. Overall using these tiles cost as an additional £800 than was originally budgeted for. I feel Topps Tiles should be advising people of this when purchasing... NOT IMPRESSED!!

As a qualified tiler for over 20 years I don’t often take the time to review a tile that I work with but felt that this quality of tile in not the best .
Having to open the box and lay the tiles in the correct pattern as the arrow on the back of the tile means nothing and to fold around corners and returns can be very time consuming and can lead to a lot of wastage. The edge of the tiles butted together don’t always sit perfect and corners can sometimes be slightly rounded .
And as for cutting, with a £300 Rubi tiler cutter they don’t always break straight and you find your using a grinder to take the rough edge off the tile . Please be aware that it will cost you a fortune to drill holes in these tiles even with top quality Rubi diamond bits they won’t last long .
Nothing’s positive I can really say about these and just look plain when up .
