I was searching through the Internet, hoping, praying, wishing that I would come across a bathroom that wasn’t tiled to the ceiling in carrera marble to prove my point with this post. As you can imagine, that was incredibly hard to find. But, as she does each time she posts, Kelley at The Polished Pebble, one of my FAVORITE blogs, gave me great photos and even more inspiration that I am all too happy to share with all of you.
Kelley and her family have a beautiful home, actually, a pair of beautiful homes in Southern California, and each of them has been decorated so beautifully and tastefully with the perfect touch. Kelley’s design skills are complimented even further by her photography skills, so a special thanks to her fantastic photography used to illustrate my point.
Ok … So my point? Yes …
Towels inside the basket? GENIUS! But not my point.
I completely consider that keeping a tight grip to your price range is a exquisite manner to stay on course in any protection, and to ensure which you are consistent with your funding. Our house is really worth one greenback amount, the funding in our rest room desires to be at a rate point so as to allow us to gain the advantage of the reno, as well as being stunning enough to enjoy even as we are here. One way to reduce fees but nevertheless preserve a tile task sublime and is to combine high-priced stone tiles with much less high-priced ceramic tiles. Anyone who has spent lots time shopping for tiles is aware of all too well how fast $1.00 in keeping with tile adds up, and how the initial $12.Ninety nine/sq. Toes. For stone sounds so high-quality, till you degree your 200 sq. Feet. Area, and should account for materials and cuts. Can you say CHA CHING?
Here, Kelley mixes lovely and high priced tumbled marble mosaic with your common large box ceramic developing a unique and high-priced look without the excessive price.
Another way to make price range pleasant tile more thrilling is to spend money on a custom pattern. If you’re doing the paintings your self, this is even extra finances friendly – as some tiling contractors will price more for special patterns. Kelley selected to layer row via row, specific sized tiles in a brick sample. I love this concept! A row of the tumbled marble mosaic facilitates convey the color from the floor as much as the wall, and feels custom and high-priced.
A higher photo of the whole pattern. Kelley stored the 4×4 tile in other areas of the toilet as nicely. The first photograph (of her bathe) has the equal 4×4 tile in a harlequin sample between the marble mosaic. Again, it is those thoughtful touches that clearly help you pad your pocket in terms of a tiling protection. Oh, and an aside: Don’t you LOVE that vintage ice cream bucket apart the rest room as a trash can? So clever!
A special thank you to Kelley at The Polished Pebble for allowing me to share her beautiful pictures to illustrate my point. Stop over and visit her sometime, add her to your visit daily list and take a tour through her beautiful home and Ojai gardens. You’ll be so glad you did!!
