    Completed the kitchen tiling today (Well apart from a little grouting on the back wall). I think it has made a huge difference for very little money:thumb:


    Most of these kitchens appear to be very similar in set up (Window style etc) so I will detail the amount of tiles and adhesive I have used and it may help if you are thinking of doing the same.


    Topps Tiles - Brown mosaic tile sheet x 8 - £2.39 each
    Wickes - Black/ grey mosaic glass tile sheet x 2 - £6.99 each
    Screwfix - Sikaflex EBT grab adhesive x 2 - £7.99 each
    Screwfix - Polymer modified flexible grout x 1 - £6.99 each


    TOTAL £56.07


    The 3 pictures show the kitchen before, after and the third is just to demonstrate how important it is to pick a thin tile (3-4mm thick). Any thicker and they would stick out too much at the edge and around the window.

    Damn!

    Didn't realise someone was looking over my shoulder while I read that. :Sad:
    That's job number 287 on the list, then...


    Good work, though :thumb:
