The problem with tearing everything out of the bathroom, is that you have to put something back in. So the Hubs and I took a little break from all the work and did a little shopping. Our first stop was The Tile Shop, to try to find floor and shower surround tile. For the floor, we were drawn to more neutral colored tiles, with a modern finish/texture.
These 18" x 18" tiles had a great grid like texture to them.
This option was a little more toned down.
I really liked the natural feel of this piece with the linear lines.
I loved the extra long length of these tiles, but the gray finish was a little boring, and looked like it might look dirty on our floor.
But we weren't thrilled with anything, especially with the $6-$7 per square foot price point. So we kept our options open, and moved on to our local Menards store, where we saw came across these beauties in the close out section.
Yep- you are reading that right, they were only $2.78! That price is not per square foot, but per tile, which at the 12" x 24" size means that these guys were only $1.39 a square foot! That was more than this
One major decision down, about a dozen more to go. Now if only we could get to the point where we were ready to put them in. We've got a long way to go before then though. Dear Lord help us get through this one.
