    Evening all

    Newbie to this forum
    I'm a plumbing & heating engineer from West yorkshire
    I'm currently installing new bathroom for myself and have got to the tiling part So that's why I'm here to hopefully get top tips and advice (or a local tiler to do it for me )
    These are the tiles I'm wanting to use around bath & shower area
    I've boarded with no more ply 12mm wall boards now just unsure as to use grout or not as I've been told splitface don't get grouted but these are just a 300x450 tile not interlocked just confused as to what to do? Also would it be best to stagger the pattern or stack on top of one another?
    Cheers in advance

    They make a nice feature wall ungrouted but a mare to grout and clean in a shower area including all the soap residue.

    I've fitted these tiles numerous times and have always grouted the joins, they look better butted up tight. If they are going in wet area your gonna want to grout them.

    Would a grout gun make it a little easier? Or just ignore the grout butt up and hope the walls really are waterproof? :tearsofjoy::grin:
