Cove base tiles? Yes or no?
Aesthetic opinions please: We're doing our bath very traditionally, in white subways, with a white-and-black mosaic tile floor. We were going to use 6x6 white cove base tiles along the bottom, then pencil tiles, then the subways. But we're cutting the pencils because they're too expensive. (Not sure why they cost so much!) We're trying to decide if we should cut the 6x6 cove base tiles too, and just use subways on the wall (plus a chair rail).
Would the 6x6 cove base tiles still add significantly to the look, or would they not "work," or, at least, not add significantly, without the pencil tiles? If they don't yield a better looking bathroom, we'll just cut them and save a little more money.
Anyone have any thoughts on this, from their own experience?
