<p>I just did a 180 on what I was thinking for my bathroom floor.</p>
<p>I am staying in a hotel
( while I force D to show me her grades & plans for next qtr - although not sure how I am going to do that- she is bigger than me & more stubborn as well:( )
with marble tile flooring.( 12x12 narrow groutlines)</p>
<p>It looks nice ( polished-) but after a shower- with 1/2 teaspoon of water on the floor, I practically fell on my keister!</p>
<p>So now I am trying to think what else- might work
We have ONE * yes, that is accurate, boys & girls* bathroom, which has to be all things to all people.
White tile shower surround & fixtures. Dark wood cabinets ( coffee colored- but different woods)- faces north ( one window- but I am thinking of adding another in the east wall) havent't painted yet- probably sea blues/greens to go with recycled glass tile counter</p>
<p>Our hall ( which is really more like a landing...if there were stairs at one point) & our kitchen, also need new flooring & I am thinking of doing them in same material.</p>
<p>( Bedrooms & living/dining room have original fir flooring- with ( some day- Oriental rugs- living /dining room still has yucky wall to wall- but I am taking that out after this other stuff gets done)</p>
<p>I'm thinking that another kind of tile- perhaps rougher finish, would have easier upkeep & wouldn't be as slick as the marble in the hotel ( I have a friend who has pale marble through out her hall/kitchen/living room- I always feel like I am walking on ice)</p>
<p>Budget is also relevant- although H used to install flooring in another life- ( well before we were married) and we are comfortable with installing the tile or whatever ourselves- </p>
<p>I'm also thinking of haunting the recycled material yards, to see if they ever get old fir flooring, because the newer stuff- looks new- or else it is $$$$We have this in the bedrooms & I really like it</p>
<p>( I am also wanting to have a quote stenciled/freehand around the bathroom, I saw this at a friends in her dining room ( it was in Latin ;) ) & I liked the way it looked. But I keep changing my mind what to have.
Since it would be a tedious process- I need ideas for quotes too.</p>
