If it's one thing i dislike it's doing tiling. The wall as i go up the stairs was covered in a cement render and it was very rough to the touch. Removing the render was not a problem but replacing the render was going to be a problem. What do i put in it's place, a nice new smooth render or find another answer.
Looking through the spindles i need something that is really eye catching stead of the usual white that everything seems to be.
While in Leyroy Merlin i found some really nice tiles. It's not easy to imagine how they will look till you get them home. After putting some on the floor and on the stairs they looked how i imagined they would. Now the wall has to be insulated and then plaster boarded before the tiles go up.
