Mixing calacatta marble with glass tiles?

Posted by lford (My Page) on

Hi all,
I am wanting to mix calacatta (white marble with brown and gray veining) with glass tiles (I was thinking 1x2 in a light green) in my master bath but I'm trying to figure out how to do it. I was going to do polished marble slab counter and tub deck on dark wood cabinets. So I was thinking of incorporating the glass tiles as backsplash on tub and vanity somehow and also somehow integrate them into the shower (materials tbd but too expensive to do all glass shower). I'd love to hear any ideas or see pics. thanks a bunch!

Pretty close to what I was thinking of doing. Does anyone have any pictures of similar? Thanks.

RE: Mixing calacatta marble with glass tiles?

I am just finishing up my bathroom that is calacatta gold tiles (4"x16" in a running bond pattern) with an accent strip of lavender/blue/gray glass tiles (1"x2"). We are about 90% of the way done, so check back in a few weeks and I should have some pictures. It's not grouted yet, but so far I really like the combo.

There is a product where it is already mixed up on a sheet. We are installing it in our ensuite but it won't be ready until mid december so i can't post any pictures. They have about 6 options of tile/glass to choose from.

Here are pics of my finished bath, which uses a combo of 4"x16" calacatta tiles and 1"x2" blue glass accents. Good luck!
