Anyone have some shots of a bathroom with a tiled floor & walls.....I'm looking for SPECIFIC colors [to show the wife].....something with black & white tiles on the floor.

I'd like something with a hex pattern ...white tile w/random black tiles [is there a name for this style floor??]
Anyone?

Walls and trim were HD stock tile H.O. had already purchased materials over the previous year. She had been planning this for a loonng time.

Diamond pattern is 1" glass squares (had to cut up 12 x 12 sheets and fill in).
She had some samples of the accents, pencil/chair rail. We worked out a pattern that would work between the different points we had to hit. Window sill, counter etc.

Tiles are white but natural lighting would throw the reflective colors all over the place

not what you want but
Floor was a greenish blend, to coordinate with counter and 1" glass pieces


And between all the samples and leftovers there were at least 5 full cases left over. But she saved so much $$ by getting it herself.

Sorry this pic is the only one I could find right now and it's really not about the tile. 1" hex and custom pattern picked by HO. Just kind of a different pattern. She cleaned it with something that she didn't get off right before I came she said, Borax I think. Oh well.

Dang, just looked at the pic, it looks like s**t. Don't remember it looking that bad!

On the plus side....
I do like the idea of those diamonds :thumbup:
This bath is too small to support that idea though [5x8 INCLUDING footprints of fixtures ] ...very small.

This was what I "found" at big box for the floor....not exactly what I wanted:



...but close.


For the walls....similar to what Aframe posted:


NOT in that pattern ....more like this idea:



The Mrs. likes these iridescent [???] accent tiles in the white tile.

We don't think the two styles [b/w floor & white/iridescent] really complement each other.

....we don't need to drill, just hack away....



....if I had to guess, I'd say I'd be laying a floor sometime next week.
