I need help from the internet today, so I'm asking you - my friends (you, to me, are the internet that MATTERS) - for some advice.
As you know, we are in the market for a new toilet. Our old one, along with the countertop, sink, tub, and linoleum, are a color that most of the appliance stores call "bone." Sort of a beige, if you ask me.
ANYWAY, we want a change. We want white appliances. We painted the trim and cabinets white a few years ago and now that we HAVE to get a new toilet, this is the perfect time to start changing everything else.
That's the complicated way of saying that we went shopping at Home Depot for a toilet, and ended up looking at sinks, vanities, showers, and floor tile. Now we're looking at a complete bathroom renovation, due to one lousy toilet.
But bear with me here.
What I need from YOU is an opinion on floor tile. We're going with that first, since it needs to be put in before the toilet, which will come second.
We brought home a bunch of samples, and we like the wood look, since we have wood floors in the hallway. We narrowed it down to these two. The one on the left is pretty much a perfect match to the wood floors in the hall, but the one on the right is a bit richer and we like it only a tiny bit better. Actually, the family is sort of split on it. The consensus is that the dark tile looks better in the bathroom, but the lighter one looks best up next to the hallway.
Oh, and ignore the color of the walls - we might change them.
So, will YOU be the tie breaker?
Below are the photos of the bathroom (one with the dog who doesn't understand photography and thought I was standing there wanting to give him a treat). If you have an opinion, please leave a comment and let me know which one you like better.
