    We recently completed the (rectified porcelain) floor tile installation in the bathroom and finished the edge with the trim extrusion we were given when we bought the tiles. At the time i thought the edging profile was a little too high but since i couldn’t find any alternatives available that...

    Grouting tumbled edge

    This is my first thread, so hopefully I'm observing all the rules... I am struggling to grout tumbled edge tiles. I've got two issues, firstly the grout won't stay in the joins very well - if I leave it long enough to go off so that the sponge doesn't wipe it all away, then that means it's also...

    Do you need to run Ditra right to the edge of the room? Thinking of leaving a gap to deal with a high perimeter.

    I've got a room with a two-layer plywood subfloor that is fairly flat (not level) but the floor ramps up at the perimeter fairly sharply. I'm going to be using Ditra for the installation (only for uncoupling - not worried about waterproofing). Rather than trying to raise the entire floor to...

    Finishing off bath edge

    Hi. I’m not happy with this finish as I think it looks messy. In an ideal world we could have got a bigger bath or boxed it in with a stud wall but neither option would have worked given out limited space all round. What’s the best way to finish this gap between the bath and wall? I was thinking...

    Tile cracking at edge of cut

    I have a Rubi manual tile cutter which is quite new. It has been fine initially but now each tile I cut fragments at the top. I cut from the bottom up but three tiles in a row have cracked the corner off at the top. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? These are all standard straight cuts. Nothing...

    Small chips on cut edge - will grout hide them?

    Hi All, I am struggling to cut 10mm thick ceramics(600x300) with my wet cutter without some small chips on the cut edge. I'm worried this will look poor around the window where it meets the trim. My grout is a similar colour to the tile, will it colour the small chips? Photo attached. Thanks...

    Cutting tiles with beveled edge

    I'm having a real problem cutting 20 x 10 tiles that have a beveled edge on all sides. If I score across the short side (10 cm) the tile cutter works as it should but every time I score along the long side (20 cm) the tile splits across the middle of the short side. Does that explanation make...

    Profile edge

    Doing a backsplash above a cooker and will be boxing in using metal profile edging, my intentions were to tile right up to the profile edge. Is this the correct method or do I leave a gap in between for grouting.
