Tile with hardwood? Need some stylin' help.
After a major kitchen remodel, I am still struggling to give my small powder room a little dress-up. It is just off both the kitchen and the formal dining room. It has white fixtures, white plantation shutters, butterscotch paint (BM Safari) and medium oak hardwood. House is uber-traditional.
The sink and toilet wall is just 58" so my dream of a real vanity is not ideal. The adjacent wall with window is just 65". I think I will just replace my cheap contractor pedestal sink and loo with Kohler Memoirs.
My kitchen backsplash is Grazia Rixi dore -- the butterscotch yellow tile. For a little continuity, I thought I might tile the walls up 42" using the dore and the mandorla (white) in a pattern similar to this picture.
Would it look weird to tile that room? It would be purely for appearances. And if I can't decide now, and go ahead install the new toilet and sink, can they later be tiled around? Or would they need to be pulled out?
