Help me pick out a bathroom wall tile...


You guys are my unpaid focus group...Which tile do you like better? This will cover the entire tub ensclosure and at least halfway up every wall. I may go to ceiling.

From left to right...

1. 17"x17". Ceramic, $1.09sq/ft, ONLY high glossed glazed, bull nosed, smooth texture. Best deal...

2. 20"x20". Porcelain, $1.99sq/ft, low-gloss glazed, bull nosed, smooth texture. This was the thickest. I was told this is the highest quality tile that I chose.

3. 20"x20". Porcelain, $1.99sq/ft, low-gloss glazed, not bull nosed, smooth texture.

4. 20"x20". Porcelain, $1.99sq/ft, low-gloss glazed, not bull nosed, ONLY textured tile.

5. 20"x20". Cerammic, $1.89sq/ft, low-gloss glazed, not bull nosed, smooth texture.

On paper, either #1 because it's the cheapest or #2 because it's the highest qulaity and they're the only two that are bull-nosed...I also like #4 due to the texture, it appears to be real stone...

I like number 2, because you can see the texture pattern more and also if you say it is a better quality tile, then that is a good option, and also the size is bigger.

I think I prefer #2 as well. Is it normal to use 20"x20" tile for walls?

#2 looks exactly like the procelain we put in our kitchen. It's great! It hides dirt like crazy and hasnt gotten boring after 3 years. We chose a slightly darker version for a border around the island as well.

The number 4 textured tile may be difficult to maintain cleanliness wise. In my experience, the bathroom is the most difficult area of the house to maintain followed by the kitchen. I think number 1 is the best option. Best price and I like the glossy look. Makes everything lively.
