Hey guys

Looking for abit of advice on tiling. In getting some one to do it but want to know it's being done right. The floor runs down quite a lot, at first I thought about having the levelled using self level stuff but on speaking to a tiler who gave me a quote says it runs down that much you won't get it level using that stuff. He advised best thing to do is let the tiles follow the slope of the floor, obviously each tile will sit flush with the one next to do so won't be able to notice.

What's every ones thoughts on this?

Thanks

Here's what it looks like at various parts of the room as you can see seems all over the shop lol

When youve taken up the finished floor you'll have a better idea of the sub-floor surface. i suppose its a solid floor?
Maybe you understand that you have to be careful with finished floor level heights or you will trap units and appliances and have difficultied at doorwys.
id go with leaving in the slope, if its a solid floor, and working with what you have

what size tiles do you want to use
using solid bedding and tile levelling spacer clips wll give you a bit of leeway.
