Is natural stone tile ever the same color as the display board?
I've selected natural stone for my master bath remodel -- flooring and shower tiles. I'm working with a great retail store with outstanding customer service and they have ordered samples of my selections.
NOTHING looks like it did on the sample boards. The sample boards look much nicer, with very little filled areas and an overall consistent color. The areas that are filled match the natural stone. The tiles we ordered have big filled areas that don't' match the tile and the overall color is blotchy. How close can I expect it to be? Are my expectations too high? I thought that by going through a
local distributor and working with the largest tile companies in my state, the quality would be better.
Both choices are honed limestone in cream colors. Do I accept the variance? Choose another style?
