Marble Subway Tile Help -- Pics!
After visiting a number of tile showrooms this weekend, I'm thinking that a simple, white marble subway might look best with our cabinets (off white) and granite (White Fantasy/Super White), but the problem is that the marble has to be very "clean" with minimal (if any) veining. One of the tile stores had something called afyon marble tiles which was a perfect color match but they only come in square tiles (4x4 or 12x12) and I really like the look of the subway better. I tried a bunch of solid white non-marble subway tiles but they all looked too solid in color and the color was usually off in some way. The marble tiles just have a depth and texture that looks perfect with the granite. Plus I found a few design tiles for behind the range that I think might look nice with our granite and they were marble. The designer at the tile store thought a larger design would work best since our range is 48" and our mantle hood above it will be 60". I'm attaching a few pictures to show what I've found, and to see if anyone has any thoughts about the main tile and design insert -- please?!?
