    I have bought some self-adhesive vinyl floor tiles for my bathroom which look really good. However, they don't have a grout effect. Is there any "grout-effect" filler I can buy that will give me this look? I've heard of fillr strips but I haven't seen any in shops or online.

    Hmmm I've never heard of anyone wanting to do that. What surface are you putting the tiles onto?
    There's an American company that make a kind of composite tile that you can grout. http://www.congoleum.com/res-duraceramic-home.php I've never used it but it's supposed to be warmer under foot than regular ceramic.

    I've already laid a 9mm ply subfloor on top of the floorboards. I read elsewhere about some sort of adhesive strips that can give a grout effect but I can't find the actual produts anywhere. Maybe I'm using the wrong search terms.

    To be honest, that sounds blo*dy awful.

    karndean and amtico do supply this type of product, though it is expensive.

    Old thread but worth a shot. Did you ever use this product?
