Tiling with timber effect tiles

Tiling with timber effect tiles can be difficult because often the tiles are not flat. This makes it impossible to fit the floor with no lips between the tiles but this can be minimised when the grout gap is increased.

But with these tiles in this cottage which was initially constructed in the 1700’s the effect is perfect because it makes the place look really old, just like an old schoolhouse which adds to the character of the place, guess that was the owners idea in the first place 🙂

I’ll be going back in the near future to tile the kitchen splash back and the bathroom and ill post the pics here so you can get to see the finished job.
