Tile Suggestions? Help!


For a 6 x 6 powder room, I picked a slab of Botticino Polished Marble for my vanity top. The vanity is dark. I want to put the same tile on the floor in a diamond pattern, but want to "spice" it up a little or make it interesting with a complimentary border tile around the room. Any suggestions? I can't find anything I like.

There are a million border tiles and listellos available and you can't find anything you like? The marketplace is full of those things.

Get out of the home centers and visit a real tile shwroom.

There are few showrooms in upstate NY. The one that I found a slab of the Botticino at is called Best Tile and the people there are either lazy or could not be bothered. I will continue to look on line. I was looking for a complimentary polished marble in possible onyx or almost black like the color of the vanity, but not too dark.

Maybe you can check out G&L marble website. Every flooring store should have some stone borders, even porcelain and ceramic borders sometimes do the magic.

Thanks. I found a brownish porcelain tile at the last available showroom at which they were so pleasantly surprisingly helpful. No one else has been so helpful. I ordered it.
