Anyone got any Sage appliances? Thinking about getting the smart toaster and kettle, but dunno if they're worth the price tag?

Yep, got a coffee machine and a pressure cooker. They're decent quality and would prob buy other Sage stuff in the future. They are basically Breville Australia products rebranded as Sage in the UK as Breville name is licensed to another company here with not so good products.

Get them from somewhere like Lakeland with a decent guarantee and where you can easily return if you think they're not suitable for you. They'll usually price match too

This makes sense, was in Sydney last week and the gaff I was staying in had a Breville toaster I thought looked very similar to the Sage one. Cheers

Want to get some tiles put in my kitchen, but unsure of what to go for. I know white subway tiles would look decent but was looking for something a little different.

It’s going to cover the wall where the sink is and the right hand side where the job is.

The whole wall between the worktop and the hob will be tiled, and not sure whether or not to carry that same level all the way round to the sink wall, or if I should just do the sink wall as high as the window sill.
Any recommendations?

The worktop border bit going on to the wall will come off and hopefully won’t cause too much of a mess.

I’ve been looking around flats the last few weeks and I’m telling you, I’m sick to fucking death of subway tiles.
It’s the new ‘laminate flooring’.

This.

70% of the bathrooms we've done the last two years has them and they are so played out Roll Eyes

Get down to your local Topps/EMC showroom and have a look round. Some real nice geometric ones out there that would make a great feature in your space

Hence why I really don’t want subway tiles.

Been down Topps and got a bunch of samples but didn’t find anything that we really liked.

There are alternatives if you like that style. We’re renovating a house at the moment and are using tiles from Claybrook (show room on Curtain Road)

Someone gave me a generous heads up on this one so passing on…check out Vitra's insta story for details of a sample sale this weekend, I believe along the Southbank and up to 60% off, judging by pics some 670's and a load of shells.
