Hi Caroline,

His name is George, his phone number is 0635239105.

He's actually done several projects for me and now several neighbors, as he's done such a good job.

Hi cascarneiro,

I would recommend www.archiexpo.com to give you some ideas for flooring.  There is a great range of flooring available and, as it is available in both french and english, it can help you find the right words to use when searching for branches in the local area.  Consider ceramic marble effect tiles - it will give the same high quality finish but without the maintenance problems:

Thank you louisa.

Do you know if leroy merlin does standard type of floor tiles.

B&Q type of tiles.

'Ceramic travertine' is a manufactured tile that looks likes travertine (or marble), has a high shine and is designed for narrow joint lines, 1mm, with no rounding off at the edges, large format.  When laid well, they look very much like a marble floor, very pleasing.

It's not the cheapest tile around, of course, expect to pay between 60 and 75 euro per sq metre, and 55 per sq for fitting, as the narrow joint lines make it a specialist business.

Hope these rough and ready figures help with your decision making, contc=act me for further details.

thanks so much.

If they're not travertine what are they.? I'm still a little confused as to what these other tiles are made of or are they a natural type stone and i'm open to seeing a photo or two.

To answer your question about what tiles I bought from CBL, I chose a 50 cm x 50 cm cream tile with sort of beige effect on them in places, they're beautiful and matt in effect. Just looked up their name and they are ceramic Italian tiles called Castelvetro.

They're modern but with a rustic touch so would go well in a contemporary or classic room.

My guys name is George. His number is 0635239105. He's just finishing off another project for me now, but will be free from next week. He speaks french, but if you want, I can translate on his behalf for you or he has a helper who speaks english.
