I have literally been talking about/thinking about tile for our upstairs bathrooms since June 1, 2011 - wow, that's a long time. I've looked at about a dozen samples and changed my mind about a dozen times.
I made a decision on this, but then I had my tile guy come over and give me a quote, and I needed more tile than I had thought (arg) so this was no longer in my budget:
Sooo.... (very) long story short, I've decided on classic marble tile.
This tile is $3.99 per sq. ft. at Home Depot. It's called "Greecian White" and is polished marble.
Honestly - I think this is the best look for the best price. For $3.99 at The Tile Shop you get faux marble/travertine ceramic. I'd much rather have the real deal.
I'm also going with this tile from Home Depot because we have a gift card, so this tile will end up costing me half of the penny tile.
But I'm not just settling on this tile because it's the least expensive option.. I really do love this look. I know it's not for everyone, but I think it's just plain classic and I'll never tire of it. And our master bath is already cream and gray.. so it works perfectly!
If everything goes as planned... we're starting next week !!!!!
I'll leave you with these pictures of Ten June and Aubrey and Lindsay's beautiful marble floors:
