Tub won't fit?? Use 6.5x13 tile surround for tub?? HELP!
I am driving myself crazy with picking out everything for my master bath remodel. I need some advice, please!!
We have a house built in 1977 with original small tub. From wall to wall to wall (so behind the current tile) we have a hair over 59" x exactly 39" to fit a new tub. I can't find a decent cheap one that will fit! Does anyone have any suggestions?? Is it possible to cut into the wall a little??
I'm also trying to pick the tile for the tub/shower surround (combo). I like the look of the brick-lay, but of course it's more expensive, so I have to be sure. The tile we like comes in a 6.5 x 13" size. Would that be good for the walls? Has anyone ever done this? My husband is concerned that if we have our 18" on-a-diagonal floor tiles and then the 13" square on-a-diagonal wall tiles that it will look funny -- too similar, to matchy-matchy, boring, etc. Any suggestions?? This is our tile we've picked, in the cappuccino color:
