I have had some questions about the tile floors in my bathroom. I've mentioned them in a few other posts, but I've never devoted a post to them. That's an oversight, because they are certainly worthy of a post!
Both tiles look like wood. They are from the same line and same company - (Havana by Mediterranea. They are long like planks. You can get them in two different widths and 5 different shades. I love them! We had planned to put this tile throughout our first floor, but have changed our minds. I don't think I want to upkeep that much grout in our senior years!
Mediterranea site, the floor appears very yellow-y. My pictures look a bit pinkish. The color is something in between. To me it looks like whitewashed wood.
In the master bath, we used Tobacco Brown. I thought the Gold was going to be my favorite color and that it would be the color to use throughout the house. The tobacco brown was pretty but I thought it would be bad about showing dirt so it wouldn't be a good choice for other rooms in the house. Wrong. It's really good at hiding dirt! It's very dramatic.
I love both floors. There are many decisions I made about my house that I am now second guessing. These tile floors are not one of my regrets. I feel pretty sure I'll love them for a long, long time.
Note: The photos I used were from just after our house was built. We hadn't even moved in yet. There's still a little grout to be wiped up in places. We now have mirrors and a vanity in the master bath. As for the light fixtures in the master - those are one of my regrets. I especially hate the globes - that tinted bit is really ugly and doesn't go with our bath at all. I can't believe I haven't replaced them yet. It turns out the globe has an odd shape where it fits into the fixture. I can't find a replacement. Eventually, I'd like to replace the whole fixture, but there are so many things ahead on the list.
