    Hi All,

    I’m about to start tiling the cloakroom with white metro tiles on the wall and a patterned tile on the floor.

    I understand you are better to start with the wall and flooring after?

    In terms of a starting point, is it better to start from the top of my planned half height wall and work down so any cuts are on the bottom line?

    also i’m a little unsure with the boxing, whether tiling the top shelf is also going to look right, any advice?

    There are odd corners etc so obviously dont want to mess it up. Also unsure at what height to go to! The window almost seems too high to tile up and around the window sil.

    To each their own, I would go up one full tile from the bottom reveal of the window. Yes you would set out to start a full tile from the top, and yes tiling the top of the boxing would be in keeping with the rest of the room, the alternative would be some form of cill which with it being a boxing would look silly.

    I have done several rooms with Metros in various family and rental houses and I like to use a soldier course rather than a tile and a bit where necessary. Looks better and a whole lot easier to cut.

    Play about with layouts dry (as with any tile job) and decide where your start point is. One trick you can try is to vary the spacer thickness if you have 2 separate lines you'd like to match to.

    Does it have to be tiled? If your after a more modern look just get it plastered over, new sink toilet etc.
    Most cloakrooms these days just have minimal tiling around the basin and that’s it. Tiling the whole lot seems a bit pointless in my opinion.
