The all white vanity has a carrera marble top so it is going to be stunning with the brushed nickel mirror and shower accents.Lara T on Jun 7, 2015This design seems to be a good foil for a small, all-white bathroom with gray ceramic 'wood' plank' flooring.

I have a 12X12 bathroom and looking for something interesting for the floor to put next to say a Carrera subway tile in the shower.BEST ANSWER: No I wouldn't - but it's not a "hard" no. The pattern is *very* difficult to set perfectly level. I think it would end up being a bit bumpy for the floor. If you think this would be OK for you, then this would be fine. It's *gorgeous* in person, and the combination of sizes, colors, materials, and slightly off-level pieces makes for a very 3-dimensional effect that always gets good comments. We used it for a backsplash in the kitchen, including up to the ceiling behind a modern vent. It's pretty dramatic without drawing too much attention from other aspects in the kitchen.I'm thinking about a very pale grey grout. Do you think this would look ok?BEST ANSWER: I used Keracolor in Silver from Lowe's. It is fairly light gray and I think brings out the unique pattern perfectly.What is the depth of the tile?BEST ANSWER: About 1/4". When mounted with the thinset, it of course takes up more thickness. It's worth noting that the tiles aren't perfectly level, and they will take on any irregularity in the mounting. This is *not* unattractive (IMO); it gives it a nice three-dimensional quality. I find the tile gorgeous; we used it as a kitchen backsplash.Would you recommend using a more expensive latex grout (vs non-sanded) to enhance tile? Looking at Bostik's Dimension Grout (contains glass specs) that's designed for glass tile. Not sure if the significant cost would be worth it especially if this tile looks great with a basic while non-sanded grout. Thanks!BEST ANSWER: This tile looks phenomenal with a regular white non-sanded grout. The Bostik dimensional grout is beautiful but wouldn't really be necessary.
Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. Tile must be sealed.INSTALLATION
