1929 bathroom floor choice
Help! We are about to remodel the bathroom in our farmhouse. It was built in 1929 by my husband's grandmother, and except for paint, nothing has been changed since it was built. We are going to bump out the alcove where the tub sits by two feet, so the bathroom will grow from 5 x 9 feet to 5x 11 feet--still a very small space. I am planning to have white glossy subway tiles on the walls, with white or possibly light gray grout. I thought that I wanted the floor tiles to be the 18" x 18" porcelain tiles that look like Carrera (sp?) marble, since I think it would make the space look bigger. Now I'm wondering if it would look too "fancy" for our simple farmhouse. Should I go with something like small hexagonal tiles instead, even though it will be a "busier" look? I would appreciate any input. Thanks!
