Today I'm working on floor and tile options. The gutted bathroom project is haunting me, and we need to start ordering... takes up to 4 weeks to get the toilet and lavatory, so design decisions must be made quickly. We have an idea of the colors we want to go with, but the combinations of flooring, tiles, formica, fixtures, etc. are still a little fuzzy. I'm narrowing down the choices, and here's the short list:
Recycled Rubber Flooring - ECOsurfaces
ECOsurfaces Commercial Flooring, made from recycled rubber, combines outstanding slip resistance with cushioned resilience and easy maintenance. Perfect for a wide variety of installations this resilient reincarnation of retired tires is what's new in green design. It's available in rolls or tiles, and in 54 standard colors, with 29 custom granules for those who want a color blend all their own.
The tub surround and back splash behind the sink will need some tile. We like the 1 x 1 mosaic tiles. Found some glass tile that looks really slick, but also like the traditional ceramic. Here is some 1 x 1 glass/ceramic tiles blends that are at the top of the list.
Check these out! They are so cute. Don't know if we'll use them in the bathroom, but thought they were interesting.
ModDotz Blend "Miami"— This porcelain has a very low moisture absorption rate and is great for indoor and outdoor use including wet areas... so they're a great option for floors/walls in bathrooms and kitchens.
Sample decks are ordered and I should have them by the end of the week. I need to see how each color and design will all work together in the space. Should have the final design choices complete by the end of the week. Then we SHOP!
Here's my first attempt. Like the color combo on screen, but need to see the actual samples before making the final decision.
