    I've been renovating my house since the beginning of this year, and have finally reached the last room in the house - the bathroom. When I moved in the room was (and still is) fitted with a typical 3 piece bathroom suite, with the vast majority of the wall tiled to approximately 2/3 of its total height.

    As I absolutely loathe taking a bath and far prefer to have a shower, I'm going to be ditching the bath in favour of a shower cubicle. This will mean that the height of the existing tiles will not be enough to reach the top of the new shower cubicle.

    I'm quite happy with the existing tiling and have a strong desire not to change anything beyond what is necessary, as most of the existing tiles are onto plasterboard drywalls, and I'm pretty sure trying to remove them would mean major replastering work. What I really want is to source a supplier of identical replacement tiles, so that the work will be limited to simply extending the existing tiling further up the wall.

    Before anyone suggests it, I have considered a shower bath, but I've had the same arrangement before and didn't really get along with it. Furthermore, because of the orientation of the bath and the fact that the room has a sloping ceiling, it would still be necessary to remove and reposition the bath in any case.

    So, that's the situation. I've looked around various local tile stores as well as those on the internet, but haven't found anything that matches so far. I'm attaching a picture in the hope that someone, somewhere out there will know where I can source these from. And believe me, I will be eternally grateful for the amount of work you will have saved me!
