Tiles

Today, the tile guys finally finished both the bathroom wall and the floor. I'm really happy with the result! You won't believe how hard it is to find blue floor tiles. Back in January, I found what I wanted at Lewis floors & homes. It was the same tile, but 12x12 inch.  That one was not in stock in the US, but had to be ordered from Italy. After I had looked in many other tile stores, I realized I had to go with the 18x18" of the same kind but put in in diagonally since the rooms are relatively small.
Fiddling with the layout before starting is well worth the time.


The subway tile was easy to find and not very costly. However the 3x6" tiles created quite a lot of work for the tile guys so in the end it maybe wasn't that much of a cost effective alternative. The only thing missing is a piece of stone or wood to put on top of the toilet tank. We thought we'd come across a scrap of something that we'd like, but that hasn't happened so far.
