I shared my bathtub find here, which I'm still so happy with and can't wait to see it in place. I'm about 90% sure I'm going to go with a dark color on the tub exterior, but the exact color will depend on the the floor tile. So I've been thinking a lot about it this week, trying to come up with an idea that I can install myself, that won't cost an arm and a leg, and most of all, will be something that I'll love for a long time to come.
I kept trying to reinvent the wheel for the wall tiles, but when it comes down to it, I think I'm just going to be happiest with classic white subway tiles. Is that so boring?? I just want the space to be bright and clean feeling, so why fight the subway, right? I have some ideas for a stone sink similar to the ones below that I think will make the space extra special, even if the walls are simple subway tiles.
The floors have me scratching my head a little still though. I need to do a little more shopping around, but there have been some cool options locally.
Something that I'm really drawn to is penny or hex tile in different colors to make a pattern. The effect would be similar to the encaustic tile patterns, but so, so much cheaper.
Have you seen any really amazing tile lately?
PS I only wish my bathroom had good enough natural light to handle this concrete tile installed floor to ceiling! Isn't it gorgeous?! It's about $7 a square foot and it comes unsealed. It's amazing in person! A total show-stopper.
