Wednesday house update: beige or grey floor tiles?

I brought home some tile samples last week and thought I had decided on huge white wall tile, and big grey floor tiles. But as the days have gone on, I’m thinking of other options…

I’m definitely doing the white wall tiles, and white bathroom vanities, with some sort of white feature tile under the mirrors (above the sinks)…

BUT, which colour floor tile would you choose?

I’m now thinking of a beigey style floor tile? Or will I stick with the grey?

Don’t worry about all the walls and features in these photos – just the floor….

The grey floor.

The beige/cappuccino floor.

I think I will head back to the tile shop today to grab some more samples, just to be sure. Tough decision this one! You can’t change your tiles down the track if you hate them!! I’m still trying to find my feature tile… maybe a white penny tile or a brick pattern. Hmmmmm decisions!

Have a great day! I’m off to an athletics carnival and back to the dentist. Wonder if I’ll end up like this again?? 🙂 But now, it’s time for my little bit of daily exercise in my new kicks!

    Hi Katrina, ours are dark grey with white walls, almost 4 years later I still love them. Am sure whatever you choose will be lovely though, have fun choosing!

    I’m sorry but I find both grey and beige very boring and clinical. If it was me choosing I’d go for something darker with a bit of colour. I’m thinking of going something blue or navy in my bathroom, maybe even yellow! I love colour though 😉

    Honey…if you are doing white walls..then definitely the grey!! The white and beige I think would look a little boring and same old same old…..whereas the grey give the bathroom more of a luxe feel and sense of opulence…AND…you can still throw in any colour in there with your soft furnishings and it will still rock it!!

    We went with white 600×300 rectified edge gloss and charcoal/black 300×300 Matt finish, also rectified edge.

    I love it but the Matt tiles show all water marks and any stuff that accumulates between cleaning, I’d need to vac or sweep and mop every day and working full time that isn’t going to happen!

    Xthe grey might show less daily usage but I’d go for white gloss or stone look.

    We decided against a feature tile as every house we looked it that was what dated them the most.

    What colour carpet, timber etc will be adjoining the bathroom, laundry etc?
    I always find it’s easier to make a decision if I can work out what mood and feel I’m trying to create? ie. warm, casual, breezy, sophisticated, minimal etc. Base the choice on the type of personality you want your home to have……it needs to be a reflection of you……;o)
    I like grey to look at but my personality and style is kind of beachy and casual so I have the biscuit beige tiles in my bathrooms and laundry……

    I vote Grey. I think beige would clash with the white a little bit where as grey would make it stand out more and look really classy 🙂

    I love the grey too! Feels modern and classy to me… Goodluck with choosing everything! I am so indecisive it would take me forever to pick something! 🙂

    We’re going with sandy 300×600 tiles laid in brick bond pattern, a nod to subway tiles but with minimal grout to see/clean. Matte on floor, gloss on walls. Vanity with classic white, shaker-ish style doors but modern handles. 20mm stone on vanity top. White bath and basin. Picked all this over a year ago but the builder has ordered today so no turning back now!

    I read this the other day and couldn’t decide…I stood in my bathroom, which I love the colours of (I have cream walls and a kind of chocolate floor, but it hints toward the merlot colour – strangely they are called Loft Merlot!) I love the combination BUT I was recently at my son’s house and they just redid their bathroom in pure white (walls) and charcoal falls (a really deep grey, verging on black maybe) and it looks fresh and amazing, I LOVE IT! That’s what I’m doing next time!

    These tiles looks great. One really needs to hire a professional when getting them cleaned. Tiles need to be properly cleaned in order for them to shine and look good.

    I would go the grey – but it needs to be darker, more of a charcoal grey.

    Learn from my mistake. I painted my lounge room the same grey as the floor tiles in the above picture hoping to make the white trims and decorative cornice stand out. Unfortunately it looks a bit blah and I’m going to have to re-paint the whole room in a darker shade to make it really striking. The darker your grey – the more your white tiles will pop.

    Also, if you chose grey, do dark grout so your floor looks seamless.

    Good luck with you choice!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having
    a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations
    or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    I love the grey and white. Looks sharp with it’s Clean lines. Only thing I would say is grey and white in bathrooms is an everywhere sort of concept and not too original. Don’t like the other bathroom at all.

    Thee accent colo will tie brightly colored tile into
    the rest of the room. Thhe desigms give a very sophisticated and kingly
    look to the bathroom. But Servicemaster can actually restore the
    like-new appearance of yur carpeting, and make staibs vanish in an instant.
