Let’s start with the kitchen.
We got samples of the all the tile options and it looks like we’re going with the round circle ones from Overstock.com. The red had too many variables (light, under wall paint color, cabinet color). The other white tile didn’t look white enough and some of the pieces in the tile were frosted. There was a little too much going on there.
We’re really happy this decision is made and has been ordered. We’re really tired of talking about kitchen tiles.
The last tile decision (we hope) was the tile for the master bath. Going with the master bedroom style, we wanted to do grey and white in there with cork floors. Finding grey tile we liked was hard. The ones we really like were out of our price range or were to slick to use on the shower floor.
We thought about just going with the white kitchen tile we didn’t select and non-endangered eucalyptus tile for inside the shower.
The only thing about the eucalyptus tile is that you can’t really cut it. Hmm…that wasn’t going to work.
Then I found this stone tile that’s in a shade of grey we like, we can use it on the shower floor, and turns out to be cheaper than both the white tile and eucalyptus (but not by much). Check, check and check!
This may not be the end of it though. Once we bought the tile, I remembered a picture I cut out of Sunset magazine of a bathroom I’d kill for.
It wouldn’t really go with the style of the house, but I like it anyway. What about the light blue tile (or white) down the center of the shower wall starting where the showerhead is and flowing in a stream (like the picture above) onto the floor and stopping at the drain? Too much?
Or, what about the entire bathroom floor in the stone tile? What do you think? Stick to the plan as it is now?
