The title of this post says it all. If only we had tile skill. Or the guts to give tile a try. Ever since we installed the new vanity top in the bathroom, as well as the chandelier – I’ve been dreaming of an all tile bathroom. Tile just makes a bathroom look so much more clean, and bright. Right now, all of our walls are just painted and it looks so dull. I can only imagine how the light of the chandelier would just glisten off a shiny wall tile. Sigh. I’ve looked at so many different blogs, and websites in regards to adhering tile, and each resource scares me more and more. There isn’t a lot of room for error with tile, and unfortunately – Andrew and I are of the “If first you don’t succeed, try, try again” breed. Let’s go back to the fact that the dresser that we just finished was started back in November, and failed miserably the first time. The second time around was a winner though, but I fear as though there is really no second time around for tile. So, what’s a girl to do in this predicament? Oh, sit online for hours and stare at tile as well as photos of glorious bathrooms, as a form of torture. Obviously.
But as I look at this bathroom below…the wheels are turning.
So, let’s say Andrew and I randomly decided one day to take on this project – which tile should I choose? I better already have it picked out, in the event, we ever do decide! I would hate to waste time looking for tile because we just may talk ourselves out of the project. Yes, it’s much better to plan ahead in this kind of circumstance.
- Key Largo with Glass, 23.99 square foot.
- Coral Springs Mix, 47.99 square foot.
- Basketweave Mountain White, 5.29 square foot.
- Hex Matte White, 5.59 square foot.
Out of the top four, I’m leaning more towards the hypothetical usage of 1 and 4. Tile option 1 would look so gorgeous in the shower, and I’d love to see tile open 4 all over the non-shower walls. Pair that with a really elegant marble floor, and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous hypothetical bathroom.
Maybe when we win the lottery.
