And to see how our bathroom turned out (did we go with the penny rounds???), click here for some pictures!
My original plan was to do white hexagon tiles with black accents on the floor and a mix of white subway tile and beaded board on the walls, but Mr. T thought it was too similar to the old bathroom which is covered in square white tiles.
Of course, the marble is more expensive than ceramic, so another reason I'd like to not go floor to ceiling with the stuff.
I took home a sheet of penny rounds in this grey/blue color too. The mini hexagon tiles in the same color are what I really want, but they're on backorder for 3 months and there were no samples for me to take home and stare at.
So now I have one all ceramic option to think about. Ceramic mini hexagon tiles (similar to those penny rounds) and the faux marble tiles on the wall.
I'm not totally convinced that this faux marble stuff is the right choice, but it seems like the best choice if I can't have my white subway tiles.
OR ... I also found this green tumbled marble which is very interesting. I thought some very, very light green paint could would look good with it. I could pair it with the little ceramic hexagon floor tiles to keep the price down and avoid an all marble bathroom.
Some other things on my reno wish list are...
A handshower fixture, a sink like the one pictured (or maybe a pedestal sink), a new toilet, beaded board like this, maybe some pale green paint. Tile is from The Tile Shop.
Several of those tiles are cracked, the sink leaks all over the floor and the tub has some issues. It's not the worst bathroom in history, but it'll feel so nice stepping into a bathroom that feels more like us. I think I'll keep the light fixtures though. They're kind of cool.
