I have finally choosen the tiles for the bathrooms!
For the downstairs shower room I have choosen a grey marble called ‘Grapite’, it has beautiful white veining and fossils, which add depth and texture to the tiles!
We bought these from a local stone Merchants from a nearby town, Bercetto.
The owner is a lovely guy who gave us a great deal because a fussy client of his didn’t like the fossils in the stone (part of it’s natuarl beauty)!
So he asked for all the marble tiles withs pieces of fossil showing to be removed from his order. This left a surplus of tiles with lots of fossil in (which I love)! So we were able to get marble which is normally €120 a square metre for much less!
One happy bunny!! ie, me!
TILES FOR DOWNSTAIRS SHOWER ROOM
The Grapite marble (Graphite marble in English) it has beautiful white veining.
This will go on the bathroom walls. It may also go underneath the white counter
top sink that sits on top of the wall hung basin unit.
But that is yet to be finalised.
Some of the fossil detail can be seen in the marble.
We are using this floor tile throughout the ground floor and
out onto the portico to give a sense of continuity.
Do you like natural stones – marble, granite and limestone or do you prefer porcelain or ceramic?
