laying out floor tile
We chose black and white 1″ hexagonal tile for our new bathroom floor. I was really inspired by these bathroom floors (and this one) – I especially loved the flower and dot designs. So I laid the white tile out on the floor and used painter’s tape to mark off a pattern.
And then Jason came home and wrinkled his nose, claiming this pattern was too “ornate” and “flowery” – so it was back to the drawing board. Because home renovation is all about compromise, right?
In the end, we settled on a double dot pattern that borders the edge of the bathroom. Once again, I laid out the pattern in painter’s tape, and then began cutting out the spots where the black tiles would be inserted.
Once the entire bathroom was laid out, we (the contractor we hired to teach me how to do all of this and I) laid the tile, inserting the black hex tiles last. Here’s a glimpse of the pattern pre-grout. I love how the pattern turned out! Yay for compromise!
