    They're going behind a wood stove with internal mitres so not too bad but it's the first and last time I'm fitting them!

    How you manage to control your OCD with these things is beyond me. Bloody things are making me twitch but I'm getting the hang of plonking them up, a quick clean and leave it. Have to keep telling yourself they're not going to line up!

    A porcelain imitation. When you tell them about the dust and dirt build up and ask them how they're going to clean them they'll be persuaded!

    The client came up with the idea of the listello to finish the egdes and I think it works quite well.
