Choosing tiles is overwhelming

There are sooooo many choices and options. But honestly, right now the front runner is from home depot: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/catalog/servlet/Search?keyword=lugano&selectedCatgry=SEARCH+ALL&langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053&Ns=None&Ntpr=1&Ntpc=1

There are so many options and the price seems reasonable. Has anyone used this tile?

I really wanted granite tiles with a pebble shower floor, but the cost is crazy and I am afraid of the amount of grout and uneven floor in the shower.

Which of the 18 tiles were you considering? The link has a whole page of them.

I have Marazzi Lugano 6x6 in the guest bath alcove ... it has a travertine look that blended well with the floor I wanted to keep.

No issues with it - the tile to tile color variability is pretty high, so check out several pieces to make sure you are OK with the darker ones as well as the lighter ones.

I'm not familiar with the tile, but make sure that the entire tile is similar in color to the face of it. Some cheaper tile has a white body and if you drop something that chips the tile it will stand out like a sore thumb

Thanks. I want a mix of tiles for interest, which is why I liked this series at HD. I will be sure to take a look at the tile for how they were made, and also to see that there is consistent colors on the surface.
