Dark brown floor tiles - any pictures?

annkathrynJuly 21, 2012

I've looked on Houzz but can't seem to narrow down my search to get what I'm looking for. Does anyone have any pictures of a very dark brown floor tile in their bathroom? I'm considering this one which DH likes but I'm not so sure:

This is our wall tile idea (it doesn't look yellow in real life):

We're also considering a 2-foot waterfall of this tile in the shower:

This is for our master bath which is approx 12x12, has a corner steam shower and a floating vanity in walnut. It will get a fair amount of light during the day.

I put these in my basement, not a bathroom but thought it might help.

Your green tile is great! Using it as a waterfall in the shower should be stunning. I'll look forward to the finished project.

In the meantime, here are our dark brown floors. In the bathroom itself we used 36x6 sized tiles. On the shower floor, we used 3x3 of the same color/pattern. Like you, we put in a steam shower and the wall tiles are a light beige.

Our vanity is also darkish -- it's Sapele, not quite as dark as walnut, but dark enough. We like the dark wood and tile. Like you, we get lots of light during the day. We just didn't put in enough lighting for the nighttime, however, especially given the dark painted walls. But that's remediable (is that a word?!).

Hope these help your decision-making process.

thanks for posting your picture, chris - very pretty floor.

kashmi your colors are similar to ours although we'll probably run the floor tile over the shower curb rather than having a different material there. What's that great green color on your walls?

Texanniew: Wow! What a great job. Very rich looking, yet also inviting.

Annkathryn: It's Valspar (Lowe's brand) Dog Park. Love the name!

No wonder you are so pleased with the results. Such a dramatic difference. Looks like you thought about even the little things like moving the location of the TP holder. Does the new mirror run all the way up to the ceiling?

AnnKathryn, could you tell me what that first brown tile you posted is? It is very much like I've been looking for.

kashmi-Not to hijack, but could you tell me what your sink is made from?
TIA

Leela4 - Hi. Sorry this response took so long. We were in rural Maine w/o access to the Net.

The sink is concrete, with fiberglass fibers embedded for strength and stability without it being so heavy. It was made by a local architect. But there are lots of people who make them. Let me know if you have other questions. We're really happy with the look and functionality.
