The floor tiling is well underway at #theshed!

It can be a bit of a challenge deciding on what finishes and products you want to use particularly when there is so much to choose from AND if you are anything like me – you like it all!!! I always thought we would have beautiful timber floors but we decided that for the downstairs we would choose tiles. We live just down the road from the beach and I don’t want to be obsessing over sand scratching the floor which is a possibility with timber – so the simple solution for us was to use a very easy care floor and you can’t beat tiles for that!
We have chosen a large format tile that looks like concrete. I purchased them before we even started and the lovely people at Beaumont tiles in Mentone were very happy to hang on to them for me until we needed them. There were 5 big pallets so that was very helpful!

They lay quickly because they are so big! Also Richo uses this system which makes it super easy! Tomorrow I will have a go myself and I also want to get the grouting done asap as the kitchen is being delivered on Friday!!!
