    Thank God that's over. It nearly broke me and caused a divorce ;)
    Nobody told me that porcelain tiles are the work of the devil. I reckon the one day I broke about ten tiles and at £15 each I had to tell my wife that the tile shop under estimated when I ordered another £300 worth.
    Its not something I would do again and definitely best left to the professionals .
    Thanks for the help everyone throughout.
    Ps The thread title should read ' Three weeks '

    Many thanks.
    My wife made me remove the white silicone in the corners of the shower pictures and do it in matching tile colours. To be fair it does look better:)

    Hi
    Thanks for the nice comment
    I would not have porcelain tiles again.
    I would buy a professional tile cutter and a wet bench saw instead of struggling with cheap gear.
    I would get time off work to do it instead of trying to do a full time job at the same time.
    Get a divorce first to stop any interference.
    The bathroom starts tomorrow but I'm having a tiler do it because life is to short.
    I'm most happy with the recess niches . Bloody hard work for a first timer but they really set it off.
    I put the mirror up yesterday which I'm pleased with. I put my own led lights around the back of mirror which look good.
    Good luck if you have a go and if you get stuck there's some great help on here
