Most Of The Tile
The tile guys got most of the tile installed. I think they would have finished by now except for the fact the "in stock" tile was out of stock!
The kitchen and bathroom floor are pretty straightforward. But I wanted to do something different in the foyer. I was going to buy a fancy tile for an inner border, but didn't see any that we thought would go with the tile we picked.
So I found a tile I liked and had the contractor cut strips of it and use that for the border. I like the way it turned out and it had the added bonus of being a whole bunch cheaper. The center of the border was turned at an angle and it givers it some interest without being fussy.
We had to come in a tile and a half to make it even and to accommodate the buffet/sink we will be installing when we find the right piece. I didn't want the border to be obscured by the furniture. Furniture for which we are still looking. MORE trips to antique stores. I don't want something super nice or expensive as I am going to cut a big hole in it to put in a sink.
Now they need to grout what they finished and start work on the shower. It's starting to look like a house! We are just waiting on the tile store to get in stock the in stock tile!
