Well our tub is in Chicago, we are just waiting for it to be delivered….in one piece, white in color, drain on the right side, correct apron front, no dents or scratches, carefully put down in our living room, without Bentley getting injured, and anything else that I am overlooking. Please and Thank You.
So while we have been awaiting the tub, we have more time to think about our tile layout in the bathroom. I made my decision right away and then went back and forth a bit since Mark liked opposite of what I picked and I am not opposed to it. The tile on the floor will be vertical, it will elongate the bathroom and I like how it looks on the floor as oppose to horizontal. In the shower/tub however, I picked horizontal. If it were just a separate shower, I would do vertical for sure, a tub horizontal, but since ours is all in one being a smaller bathroom, I think horizontal looks classic with our fixtures we picked. Let’s face it, you can’t go wrong with marble, it will be pretty either way. Vertical makes your ceilings look taller, and overall bathroom seem bigger. It’s more modern in style, so if you don’t like modern, you won’t ever pick this way. Mark & I happen to love modern, but with a classic twist. I asked for people’s opinions on Facebook, and I am not even sure why as I knew the answer. I know 80% out there are going to pick a more traditional look, which is why horizontal won the vote. I usually am the 20% that likes the exact opposite with a twist, but I think I am going to keep with my original horizontal. Mark loves the way vertical looks and I know why. It’s cool, it’s edgy, it’s modern, it’s different, it’s sexier for tile dare I say.
Take a look at these bathrooms. The tile layout does make such a big impact in a room.
Wishing you some pattern inspiration :)
