    I'm looking to tile a 4M x 3M Bathroom.

    Looking in B&Q today at some nice Limestone look 600x400 tiles, but £40 a sq metre is a bit rich.

    Where should I be looking?


    Thanks

    try online, bee and queue are cheap but quality usually suffers with them.

    I got all mine from Tile Giant matey.

    400mm x 400mm travertines at £2.99 each as they are on special offer at
    the moment
    They look lovely on the floor and walls. Thing is you will have to get
    yourself a wet wheel cutter to cut them as they are 12mm thick but they
    do cut with ease.

    But i didnt need many for my bathroom as its only small, if your doing a
    bathroom on your scale (50 odd Sqm) your better going direct to the warehouse for natural stone.

    I found Stoneworks in Brailsford, Derbyshire to be very cheap.

    They do online quotes and will get back to you within the hour.

    B&Q do a Plasplugs cutter for about £55, there are others but this is the
    one my tiler had.

    cheers

    You should try ctd down on the cowdray center in colchester they have some great natural looking tiles and the quality and service is far better than most local tiling shops........ The prices are good too for what your getting. good luck and happy shopping :D

    you seem to have a lot of advice today!

    think about what your saying to people, i could say, parkside tiles down the road from me is excellent for some things and not others, but the guys who dont live near me wouldnt find it useful!

    nice to see newbies on the site tho ever ready to give advice and help out where possible, welcome

    :cool:

    Topps are as good as any for a 'High Street' outlet. Where ever you go on the High Street or retail park attempt to barter for a deal - don't accept the 'ticket price'.

    We've found www.wallsandfloors.co.uk to be really good on price & delivery. Got a load of Quarry Tiles from them (4 pallets) plus all the fancy edge ones as well, promptly delivered. No other supplier could get near them on price.
