(if you'd ask Johnny the tiler) and I tend to agree! They have been a right pain to install and on top of that I'm just not keen, there needs to be a bit of strategic removal for sure!
The first few pebble tile sheets went on and it was smiles all round....I walked off happy at this point that pebble tiles were most definitely the way to go!
it all started off so well
Trying to get the right amount of grout was tricky...too little and you can see the joins....too much and it hides the pebbles. Our current issue is finding the right sealer. The one I purchased (gallons of) is too matt. We need to find a suitable alternative that will give the pebbles a slight sheen.....answers on a postcard (ok gmail) please if anyone out there in blog land has any recommendations
This is roughly where we are at right now....the word "Flinstones" keeps on passing through my mind, no matter how much I try to replace it with the word "Spa". I'm hoping they will grow on me, I'm reserving my final judgement on whether 'pebble tiles must go' til I see the finished article, when the fittings are in and the walls and ceiling are painted white.
I should point out here that it's just the one wall of pebble tiles, everywhere else is going to a plain white painted finish.
luckily I'm happy with the flooring (huge sigh of relief there!).Just as well really as the en-suites in my older girls bedrooms have this floor tile and tiling has started in there already...more pics to follow soon!
I've decided to carry on blogging regardless of my paranoia after the attempted break-in on site!!
Don't forget...any tips on a good sealer for the pebble tiles...drop me a line, Mrs C xx
Ok so now I'm looking at these tiles and definitely feeling the Fred & Wilma vibe...definitely O.D'd on the pebbles!! need to have a quick re-assess of the situation, some strategic pebble removal needed me now knows for sure!!
