We had half the new renovation tiled when we decided to knock down walls. This meant we had to order some more tiles or use carpet as before. Fortunately, the supplier had some more of the same tiles. They were a different batch so he advised us there may be a slight colour difference, but mixed in with the left overs from the first lot it would not be noticeable.
Sounds just fine and dandy huh? Well the tiler arrived this morning to finish it all off so we can get our living area back to normal (??) by Easter. Now if you purchased a 450mm x 450mm tile you would expect it to measure 450mm right? Nuh, they were smaller than the other batch by about 4mm !!@@@??@??!!! (Replace with expletives.)
So people, if you are buying tiles just keep this in mind. What to do? We cannot lay them the same as the other area as it flows through and the line would be all out. We can't have a big wide ugly grout either. Soooooo, we have got around it by separating the two areas with a feature tile and laying the new tiles on the 45 deg. angle. Off tile shopping again on Monday. Whew! Well of course this can't be done til next week now as the tiler has other jobs to go to. It could still be done by Easter though, fingers crossed!
Our living room. Come on....you must feel a bit sorry for me!
