Well hello! Since I've been in the tile aisles lately (check out our basement fireplace project here), I've seen some AWESOME options that I had to share with you. Tile stores and showrooms are incredible, (and quite fun to look through if you haven't done it) but I have yet to purchase from them because the hardware stores have so many cool options at great prices. I've been incredibly pleased with the quality of them over the years too.
I snapped some photos of my favorites from a couple stores to share with you (all on my phone so not my best photography). These first few are from Home Depot and I wish I had a spot for each one of them! This hexagon marble tile is gorgeous:
I am going to use a pebble tile for our shower floor (someday...) and this is a favorite -- I love the gray tones:
I bet this feels awesome underfoot too. ;)
I love this for a more traditional look -- it's a classic:
This small marble subway tile would be beautiful in a bathroom:
This basketweave has some darker tones and I bet it would be a stunner installed:
I LOVED this version too -- it had more of a natural stone look:
That one also had a lot of dimension to it that was really unique.
This is a tiny, lighter version of the stacked stone we're using in the basement:
These mosaic sheets of tile are so easy to install and this one above wouldn't need to be grouted -- always a bonus!
THIS was a favorite and I must find a spot for it. This gray arabesque tile is gorgeous:
I'm sharing mostly mosaic sheets of tile but I loved this large marble subway tile too:
So pretty! I love the large subway look!
This one was a ceramic made to look like marble:
No worries about etching or staining on that!
These last options were from Lowe's -- I've always loved a penny tile and they have two options:
This stuff was so cool -- it's itty bitty subway tile! It would be a bear to grout but I thought it looked really neat:
This was another ceramic tile made to look like marble -- the look without any of the fuss:
These were two more versions of the vintage black and white look:
This hexagon version is larger than the HD option above and there are stone tiles mixed in with the marble:
As you can tell, I'm a sucker for the marble. I liked this oval tile too --
That gives you a more modern look with a traditional material.
This marble basketweave was pretty too:
This one caught my eye -- each piece was huge and I loved the wavy look and the colors! This would be awesome in a bathroom!:
This one is one of my favorites -- I can't get over how cute this bubble tile is and I'm trying to figure out where I can use it:
Again, it would be such a pain to grout, but I'm guessing worth it! Most of these sheets are at $10 each and are about a square foot.
Have you used any of these I have pictured? If so I'd love to see them -- feel free to link in the comments. I love that there are SO many cool options so easily accessible. These stores have really upped their game over the past few years.
Here are a couple of my favorite tile projects in our house...
See how I installed the marble herringbone tile to our fireplace surround:
And we used really inexpensive octagon tile sheets in our basement laundry and I love them:
