We have drywall and tile going up downstairs this week. And as I type, one of the guys is just outside my window cutting wood for the built-in shelving - the end is in sight!
We decided to splurge on marble tile for the bathroom. We're only going to do this bathroom once, so we decided to take the plunge and allocate a little extra budget for tile. We initially found tile that we liked at a local tile shop, but when we found similar tile at Lowe's for nearly half the price, we had to go with the more budget-friendly option. We were a little concerned that the quality might be a bit less in comparison, but have been assured that we chose a quality tile. Let's hope so, 'cause there's no going back now.
Between the floor and shower walls I think we bought somewhere around 350 sheets of tile. And just because I'm a little neurotic and wanted to make sure we didn't choose any tile with too much yellow or brown tint, we went through every single box and every single sheet before loading it into our cart. It took forever. It was exhausting.
Finally, we'll leave you with last night's shot from the corner in the den:
Up next, choosing paint colors...two guesses on what color we'll choose.
