It worked. There's this place called Chris & Dick's (that luckily stays open til 6) where Remy got the kitchen counter from that we stopped by and found exactly what we wanted. Unfortunately they have to ship the tile out so it won't be here til Friday at the soonest. Which part of the point of doing the floor now was so the contractor could just rip the old crap out and put it in this week. Oh well, what can you do?
Yesterday when I got home the new tub was in, part of the floor ripped out (since we couldn't get the tile right away they stopped taking it out), and a decent portion of the tile was done. I'm not going to lie I thought there would be more tile up, but I guess the plubming had taken them a bit longer than expected. Which is fine, I mean hello the timeline was to be done (without the floor) by Thursday so I think we're fine!
The only issue I have is that we picked a tile that of course isn't natural stone so the "variation" from tile to tile is artificial. So really there are only like 4 different tiles and the "image" only varies slightly. Sometimes one spot is farther to the left or up or whatever, but essentially there's only a few patterns.
Which I didn't think about.
Which wouldn't be a problem except that they're installing the tile all the same direction (apparently there's an arrow on the back of the tile indicating where the top is)
Which means that same swirly thing just keeps repeating itself in virtually the same place over and over again.
Which bugs me.
Which made me call Remy right now and ask if they can rotate the tiles.
Which with my luck they've already finished.
We picked out a natural stone trim thing which will tie the floor and the shower together SO well...it's going to look awesome! So here's a little visual treat for you all...my own drawing of the tile. Now don't forget the tiles aren't a solid color, they're sort of lightly marbled with a medium brown color and then the floor pretty much matches the darkest brown in the trim pieces.
Below is the shower head and stuff we picked out. So the only thing left is to switch out the sink faucet and all the finishes will match!
Yay for new bathrooms!
