Tile – The Morning After

So, maybe my tile hysteria has gone down a bit.  It is still not the best match.  The cool gray on the wall and the warm gray on the floors are never going to look smashing together. But, this morning, in a different light, they were not screaming at each other either.

Sunday.  The tile setters were not working.

We went inside and walked around. Maybe it is not so bad.

The guest room is on the western side of the house.  The tile looks fine in the morning light.

The guest bathroom doesn’t look so back either.  Well, except for that dirty tile.  I didn’t notice it until I got the picture on the computer.  Andy assured me that it is dirt from the yard.

The family room, with south-facing sliding glass doors, does look a bit browner in the sunlight.

As commenters have pointed out, and even I have considered, when the furniture, rugs, and art are in, the less-than-perfect tile/wall match will probably not be noticeable.  If I still don’t like it, I can always paint.

    I can sympathise, yours is a much bigger decision than ours but having tried out 9 different shades of yellow and cream for a guest bedroom and eventually going for the first one, I can understand the nerves – I was convinced it was to bright when it was painted, but it worked out really well once all the furnishings and accessories were in.

    IMNSHO i think you should make the contractor paint the walls a different color, if the dichotomy really bugs you. They misrepresented what you were going to get.

      I dunno. When the sun is not directly on it, it does look the right shade of gray. I’m pretty sure it will turn out OK. Besides, I love that shade of gray on the walls.

    Looking good! Others are correct. When furniture, rugs and art are in they will blend. We put in tile all over the house years ago and love it.

      I think so. I’m not sure I love tiles so much as I hate carpeting. The house came standard with tile in the foyer, kitchen, and bathrooms and carpet in the family room and bedrooms. I hate to vacuum. We are a couple of slobs and spill things. Carpet in bedrooms was ok in the houses, but got disgusting in a hurry in the boat and the motorhome. People tell me tile is hard on the feet and legs. What is your take on that?

    Again. looks fine to me. There is a fair amount of dust, dirt, and debris still on the tiles so that will make them look worse. Once they are all cleaned and shiny you will wonder what on earth you were worried about!
