It’s going to look awesome when complete. The wall tiles are 4×16 and I purchased them from the Tile Shop, Imperial Bone Gloss Ceramic. The skirting around the tub also came from Tile Shop. The grout is Superior Pro-Grout Excel in Dessert Sand.
The floor tile is the mosaic tile that matches the hexagon tile I put in the tub area. I fell in love with the Isla King Wood tile when I stumbled across it on Pinterest. It’s an Italian tile and it was a splurge that I justified because I put in the labor. I was fortunate to find the tub floor tile online at Mission Stone and Tile. With shipping it was several hundred dollars cheaper than JP Flooring, a local vendor. I had selected a 2×2 hexagon tile from the Tile Shop that would compliment the tub area, but Mike Tanner’s installer suggested that I go with a square shape tile, less waste and time to install. The Tile Shop had a 2×2 square mosaic, but it was only a couple of dollars less than the King Wood mosaic, which is what I really wanted. I only needed 23 sf. Even though I had to pay for installation, it was less than $100 in material cost increase, so I went for it. Unfortunately Mission Stone and Tile did not carry the mosaic, so I ordered it from JP Flooring.
