       I like it.

       Actually, could one not tile a wall with real Scrabble tiles? I'm guessing there's a square foot's worth of tiles in one game.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 03 2007

       I like it too, but if I have to make all of the letters spell out words to install them It's going to cost you large.   

       Would you leave one space empty so you can slide the tiles around and make words?

       How about large ceramic tiles that make up a Scrabble Board? Then you could actually play Scrabble on it with large wooden Scrabble tiles.   

       You can take it out of the oven now - it is fully halfbaked. [+]

       hope you don't mind if I actually do this. I love that fresh bread smell. mmmmm..

       Also needs "Triple Word Score" etc. tiles, and the basic blue/green board. What words would you spell out?
Ling, Jul 04 2007

       It would be nice in the kitchen if you place the tiles so that the word 'sink' is by the sink and has 'bin' going through it, fridge/milk, etc.

       I like that addition [marklar].
fridge duck, Jul 04 2007

       me too [marklar]   

       It would give rise to a new sub-specialty of interior decorators who are good at word games and can create tile patterns that fit into your space but also spell things.

       Sadly my bathroom has just been tiled - otherwise Waddingtons would have had a phone call.

       Nice work, [Ling].

       I would like actual wooden tiles better.   

       I think this would decrease the property value of a property, especially if it had custom chosen words like some of the ones ling selected.

       What's a cream tap?
fridge duck, Jul 06 2007

       It's like a gold one, only not. Also, in English English, a tap is a faucet.
Ling, Jul 07 2007

       I thought this was going to be like a slide puzzle <link> that would be set in the floor of the bathroom. That way you could pass the time while you were sitting on the loo. I imagined playing by shifting the tiles with your feet.   

       [+] for a wonderful idea.
Klaatu, Jul 07 2007

       You could also have the floor be the scrabble board and have the tiles not be attached to it. (I think I might do this.)
AlexTheGreat, Jul 08 2007

       [Maxwell] - not only are there not 144 tiles in a box, the tiles aren't even an inch on a side!   

       I wouldn't let that stop me, though. I bet someone could make a little arrangement with the manufacturer and buy up a mountain or two of the tiles and get cracking. To keep it affordable, do only one wall.   

       Order extra blanks!
