    stupid question time are they slippy?

    redoing bathroom and am being told the style is to carry the same tiling though the floor and walls a la wet room

    would appreciate some opinions of anyone who has done something similar

    They can be. It depends upon how much you want to spend. There is no point having a nice looking floor that maims you. Regardless of which way you go, be prepared to smash up the living room and set the sofa alight, after your missus asks you, " are you sure you are doing that properly?" She will, so have a can of petrol and a big hammer ready.

    thanks - obviously if they get wet then its sure to be an issue

    have ceramic ones at the min and whilst they ok have been 'advised' by her maj that they need to be changed - wrong colour apparently

    We used textured stone tiles, looks & feels great

    Too true, we've got them in the kitchen and I walked in there the other day with wet feet... I instantly slipped but somehow managed to defy the laws of physics and fell up rather than fell down, didn't even realise I was capable of doing back flips.

    Not worth the risk. Just get some cord carpet tiles and go the pub and get pissed with the money you've saved
