Tiling Tip from Henry: “Purchasing good quality tiles is just half the story. Even the most expensive tiles can look disappointing if not laid by a professional. Don’t be afraid to ask to see examples of a tilers work before going ahead. Look out for details such as grout joint thickness, quality of mitred edges, use of metal angle to hide faulty workmanship, centred tiles in a room, full tiles to the ceiling, and cleanliness of the site after the jobs completed.”
