Bathroom Tile

The Real Thing, Only Better?

At first glance it’s another marble bathroom using various sizes of the luxurious calacatta marble to create interesting patterns.  But not so!  If you look more closely, just maybe, you will be able to tell that this is actually a semi-polished, porcelain tile that mimics calacatta marble.  As a porcelain tile: no sealing, no scratching, no staining and easy maintenance compared to its marble inspiration.  That’s the beauty of many of the new porcelain tile offerings – it’s hard to tell whether or not they are real stone.  This bathroom uses 24″x 24″ tile (large scale in a small space . . . yes, it does work) and 3″x 12″ tile set in a herringbone pattern on the floor, 12″x 24″ tile on the shower walls, and 3″x 12″ tile for the tub surround and vanity back splash.  We’ve also sprinkled in some natural stone as an accent and finishing trim. Elegant, classic, timeless … and easy to maintain.
