Subway tile: very expensive or Daltile?
I've been looking for a unique size subway tile for the backsplash and was limited to fairly expensive brands because we originally wanted 1'' x 6'', which is hard to find.
Now that we've chosen a 2'' x 4'' size this opens up a lot more possibilities. I found a Daltile in the right color (biscuit) for a very reasonable price. The other, more expensive manufacturer was almost $30/SF. Yes, the more expensive tiles are hand made but honestly they look machine made. My question is whether there's any significant difference in quality. I've never purchased backsplash before so don't really know what to look for.
When I hold the 2 tiles next to each other the only big difference I see is that the more expensive tile is thicker, but where would that even be noticeable once it's installed?
Any thing else I should consider? Thanks.
