another marble tile substitute

Since there's always a lot of interest in tile that looks like marble but isn't, I thought I'd mention that I was in Lowes yesterday and they've totally revamped their tile lines, including one that uses the new inkjet process to do a calacatta honed marble.

It looked very nice from what I could see, but they've also started redoing their sample boards using printed photos instead of real tile (hate that), so all I could see was the tile visible in the front of each box. No idea of how many different tiles there are before it repeats. Also, they didn't seem to offer a size smaller than 6x6, so nothing really suitable for a shower floor.

They also had some of the new linen look tiles. All are brandless and come from China.

Ooohhh... I'll have to check those out! Too bad they're brandless since it could be hard to search and find on their site.

Yeah, I looked all over the boxes and there's no spec info about coefficient of friction and such, but I would guess the folks in the department could dig that up.
