    I've got a tiny toilet off my bedroom only 2ft wide and 6 foot long. I am about to rip out all toilet and sink fittings and I'm looking to tile the walls and replace tiles on floor. Does anyone have any ideas for tiles that would suite the walls .I have saw some blue glass mosaic tiles in topps that I thought would ma
    ke a nice border but way too expensive to use for the whole walls. I imagine a big tile would make the space even smaller .any suggestions would be appreciated as Im sure a tiler would hjave a better idea than me what looks best in tiny spaces!
    Also if anyone knows a good tiler in Sudbury area that would save me doing a diy disaster of a job .

    You can put a shower at one end and a wc with sink in the cistern at the other end. Fully tile it wall and floor with wood planks.

    IMO I would go for light colours wall and floor something to bounce light as much as possible. Avoid dark dull finishes.

    Thanks Callatiler , I think I am going for bumpy white glossy tiles and a small border (subject to the mrs's seal of approval ) .Failing that I will go with Timeless Johns suggestion and get some old wood pallets and tile the walls with them .

    Hi Vernon, you're not related to Jonathan are you? If not it's an amazing coincidence that you both have the same surname and he is a director of the company you linked in your post.
    Have you ever known such a coincidence @Dan@Dan, @Plan Tec Tiling@Plan Tec Tiling , @3_fall@3_fall ?

    No advertising, BAL once tried to get me to advertise their new white star adhesive for £1000 but my morals were strong, strong like their new fibre enhanced ready mixed easy spread water resistant shower approved tile adhesive.
