Looking for tile that looks like marble Sign In/Join

I want to put carrerra marble hexagon tile in my bathroom, but like the kitchen countertops I wanted, I hear stories about it in a bathroom as well. Ugh, is anything I want for this new house easy?! I hear porcelain is nice and can give you a similar look, but I cannot seem to find it in hexagon online. Has anyone seen it? Thank you

I have 2" square carrera marble tile on the floor in my master bathroom as well as marble baseboard and haven't had any problem with it.

Thanks pk. How about the shower floor and walls? That's my main concern.

Keep searching...porcelain hex that in faux marble exists. I came across it in my search for bath tiles, but found a better mock marble tile that I opted for in 2" squares. Sorry I don't recall the brand that came in 2" hex tho. BTW, the brand I used was cheaper too.

My shower is swanstone. My daughter has a faux marble porcelain tile surrounding her tub but it is a rectangular tile (approx. 13"x5")that we bought at Home Depot-very nice looking. They had a selection of this tile in various sizes but don't remember any hexagon.

chloe, have you checked Home Depot online? They show several hexagonal tiles which are not marble. I don't know how close they come to your vision for your bathroom, but you might want to google it.

I believe the tile place where I found the marble look hex tile your searching for was Avalon tile. As I stated I forgot the brand tho. Anyway, check out their web site to see if a store is in your area. I had no luck finding it on their site. Btw, I was searching for this particular tile in about five or six places locally including Lowes and Avalon was the only one that offered it.
