    So I'm looking to get a bathroom fitter to do my ensuite.
    One of his previous customers sent a few photos of a bathroom he did for them. All were out of focus except the one below.

    Am I being over critical in saying the tiles don't look evenly spaced ?

    No I haven't.

    Ideally I want a company / person which has experience doing wet rooms. It's hard to find someone who has positive reviews for this as well as tilling.

    Perhaps I will advertise on here for a tiler (I didn't know I could to be honest) and ask the bathroom fitter to work with them.

    This is right, I'll have to just accept I've chosen another dud. At least he didn't do any work this time.

    And how many plumbers know how to make a wetroom (not many from my experience).

    From that photo, avoid that that chap.
    You need to find a tiler first and foremost who’s good and clued up, and he will be able to suggest a good plumber who knows what he’s doing, that’s what I would advise! I’m sure there’s somebody on here who can help. What tiles have you chosen ?

    They are Renaissance Ivory (Rectified, Glazed Porcelain), 300 x 600 and mosaic tiles for the shower area.

    The bathroom fitter has emailed me to say:
    Not all tiles are equal in size and they are not all flat (only stone can be 100% the same size, but still not guaranteed). Depending on the size, type they can differ in size 0-2mm for porcelain tiles and with 2mm spacers even 0.5mm will be visible.

    (I'm paraphrasing slightly as I don't want to copy the original text here)
    Here then posted links to these sights:

    Stone 100% Lol. Try Basalt ! Put a level on a Granite top and look under it, not always flat. Uncle Rays tiles 99.999999% same size.

    You've chosen rectified tiles, I take it you know what that means? Clearly that "tiler" doesn't!
