Question

buy cheap bathroomtile online?


I am looking for trim for plain white bathroom tile. Can this be bought online? For instance, a 6" rope-pattern edge at Home Depot is $2 each. Are there other places to find this? Searching online always leads me to flooring.

I'm a newbie here too, with limited tile experience.

I would go to HD, find a box of the stuff, see exactly what the manufacturer calls it and google that.

A few things to consider.

1)If it is not the same manufacturer the color or size may not match.

2)Tile is heavy. The shipping costs may be more than any savings.

3)Tile is fragile. What if they arrive broken? Will they be replaced, and can you wait until they are?

I would try a tile wholesale shop. They buy in bulk and pass savings on to you. You can also find discontinued tile for dirt cheap and if its a small area you can buy enough plus 10% extra for replacement later. Just keep shopping.
