Which tile for entryway?

Posted by aklvdb (My Page) on

I've narrowed it down to a few (I think!).

I need help.

Which looks better? Paint is BM revere pewter. Floor is a engineered oak 7.5 inch wide planks.

Would you pick 1, 2 or 3 (they are numbered on the green tape!) or neither, keep looking.

Thanks for all the advice I've received on here and TIA for this!

Can't read the numbers on the tape. Looks like a 2 on the one I like, which is the one on the bottom.


 o

# 2 on the far right side of the photo but might go a bit darken than even that one.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

rgps, that's the one I like also.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

I vote 2 as well..it looks like it's got nice brown undertones that complement the hardwood.....


 o

2 looks the most complementary to me.


 o

The darkest one.


 o

I like #2 the best too.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

Another vote for 2. I like that it is a bit darker and quieter. Looks good with the wood and calms the paint.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

I like the lightest one, it's fresh and clean and I love the contrast with the dark floor.

RE: Which tile for entryway?

Thank you for all the opinions! The one on the right is the one we are leaning towards. I think they could all 'work' is the problem. The middle one sparkles - and I do love sparkles :) But it is a bit cooler.

I think the lightest one, while beautiful, would not be practical in our climate. We get winter a lot of months/year and it would get sloppy, esp the grout.

The middle one has a darker version, so I may check that out as well. (steel, but will probably be too dark, I do like a lighter contrast).

So many choices, thank you for helping me narrow down a 'look'.

Here is a link that might be useful: middle tile but darker version

Hmmmm…I like the bronze in the Vienna!

Agree re: the sparkles. And your choice for the flooring is gorgeous.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

Another vote for #2.


 o

The Vienna looks like concrete in the photos. Of course it's almost impossible to capture stone in the right light to show it's true beauty.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

First, all the tiles look beautiful, especially with the wood flooring. My favourite is the far right one (darkest) which I think is labeled #2. The color is perfect with the floor and I love the striations. Any chance for closeups of all three? My next choice would be the middle (labeled #1 I think).


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

I also love the bronze. Because of your winter weather, I think it would be best if you go for a darker tile, and use a dark grout.

Entryways are a fun place to let loose with color and pattern where tile is concerned.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

I also like the way the bronze would probably segue into the wood floor better.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

I like the continuity of similar shades in flooring instead of contrast when using different materials, so I like the bronze the best, too.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

Thanks!

pricklypearcactus, here's the best I could do with a close up.

I'm trying to get away from browns/beiges and segue way a bit into the warm greys

I'll take a irl look at the darker bronze/steel and see how they look with the 'look' I'm trying to go for!

Other tile

Duplicate post, didn't close up on the light tile as i ruled it out.

The third image didn't show up, but now that I see the other two close ups, I'd have had a hard time picking between them. I might lean a tad more toward number ONE now. I like that its movement and color would contrast the wood floor nicely.
I do take it, that the wood floor is on the left and not the plank in the front, correct?


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

justgotabme - it's all the same wood, I just put the plank there for colour. The sample on the left I think has darkened over time.

We are also kind of liking one, I don't know, it might seem too cool. But it does have some browny flecks in it. No pink for sure. But a touch of blue almost.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

Ah.... it could be the way the light hit it too. It's so hard to tell in photographs. Even at that, I've changed my mind to #1.


 o
RE: Which tile for entryway?

I'd like to see a sample of the bronze next to your floor wood and the wall.
