marble hex tile

Posted by mabeldingeldine (My Page) on

We are midway through our bath reno, rapidly approaching the tub surround redo, and I have yet to find an accent tile I like to go with glossy white square AO tiles, white beadboard wainscot, gray walls, and butter yellow painted vanity.

We are now thinking about 1" marble hex mosaic or maybe 1" squares. I'd like to find some with a lot of gray, does anyone have suggestions for where to find some?

Many thanks!

Three apples, thanks for that. I've been looking at their tile online and it looks beautiful.

I don't want to hijack the thread but I was wondering if threeapples could post a pic of his/her hex floor?

mabeldingeldine, I love the idea of a butter yellow vanity! I already ordered gray cabs for our white AO subway tiles and was planning on sneaking in some yellow in the window treatments. LOVE yellow in the bathroom. :)

i'd be happy to take some photos tomorrow--the marble hex floors are being cleaned and sealed. right now they are covered in sawdust and paper. in the meantime, however, here is a photo of one of the hex styles we bought from oracle--these are two samples my tile guy made for me to determine grout. the other marble hex is whiter, but both are gorgeous and i've very happy with it.

Threeapples, Would you happen to know the color of the lighter gray grout? I am doing the same floor and like the lighter gray. Thanks so much.

Thanks, threeapples! I'm going to order a sample sheet of the same tile. I was originally going with the builder depot's venato 1" hex but I'd like to do a side by side comparison. The price is almost the same but it look's like your tile has free shipping.

The light grout is custom's "platinum," I think you can get it at Home Depot.

I am totally sold after seeing your tile threepples. It is beautiful.

Bumbledoodle, I'd love to see the two compared. I'm looking for lots of gray, which the samples above have, but I am always curious. I hope to be making the final decision this weekend.

I ordered the 3 inch marble honed hexagon tiles from a local tile store. I couldn't find the 3 inch size online. It is new, from what I understand, at least here.
