Anyone put oversized tile in a Victorian bath?
I should say that I am not doing an authentic Victorian bath...
I am trying to retain a classic, vintage look, but merging it with an updated feel.
We are doing subway tile, console sink, transom... But the floor is bringing all progress to a crashing halt.
We put a 2" carrara marble hex in the master bath. And it is absolutely beautiful. I love it. BUT. That bath gets very little use. And so the grout/sealing marble is not an issue.
The bath we're doing now is going to be used by everyone. And I cannot abide the thought of all that grout. Yes, I know some people will say you can seal it, magically and have no problems. But my issue is cleaning it. Grout is too porous for me to feel like it's ever clean. So I've been looking at oversized tiles that have a neutral / marble appearance.
I haven't found anything I love yet, so I figured I'd ask here. Perhaps the bath forum might be a better place to post, but I'm interested in the perspective of other old-house owners who love the character of their house. But might have used modern designs when it suited them.
I've lurked here for almost two years now and have found the forums indispensable.
