Today we ordered the tile for the upstairs and downstairs bathroom.  Here was the inspiration:


We decided to go with a 3×6 matte white subway tile instead of the square tiles but will do the same running bond pattern.  We got a matte black hex tile for the floors in the upper bathroom, where we only have a shower.  We have sections of slate that were around the fireplaces (many were broken) that we will have cut in sections for the shower curb.

In the downstairs bathroom where we have a bathtub, we are going to use a light green victorian hex tile for the floors with the same wall tile as the upstairs bathroom.  Here is a picture of what that looks like.

The subway tiles are a great option if you are on a tight budget since they work out to be a little over $2 per square foot.

Can’t wait to share some photos post-installation!
