Floor Tile

White Subway Tile

Glass Accent Tile: Studio E Edgewater Delmar

Tile Selections

The 2 items Sarah had chosen before I started working with her, where the floor tile and wall tile. However she hadn’t found an accent tile that she was happy with.

The Floor Tile:

The floor tile is a simple 12×12 in gray. We decided to work with this choice, since it is cost effective and will wear well. The grout will be in a similar gray color.

The Wall Tile:

For the wainscot and tub surround Sarah chose a simple matte white subway tile. I think this is an excellent choice. It is quite popular at the moment, but I think it has a nice timeless quality for a Victorian house like her’s.

The Accent Tile:

Sarah mentioned that she likes some of the glass tile she had seen, but wasn’t sure how to best use it. We also needed to find something in stock, to meet our tight deadline. I thought it would be nice to choose something a little bit different, since the rest of the wall tile is very neutral. I found this beautiful line of tiles at Home Depot online called Studio E Edgewater. This will be installed as a trim piece with 1 piece of cove subway tile above. To minimize cost a 1″ high tile was selected. I decided that a 1″x2″ would pair nicely with the larger (3″x6″) subway tile. There were several color choices that would work in the bathroom. In the end Sarah chose one that has a beautiful mix of blue and green.
