I thought for sure I'd want the dark, but I am torn...I like the orangier one ties in more with my tile...

I am not sure if I will do this same wood look tile in the bedrooms eventually or will redo another wood laminate...which I would try to match up with the bathroom wood tile...It doesn't have to match perfectly if I do go with a wood laminate for the bedrooms because there is a pocket door between the bedroom and masterbedroom.

The orangey one does flow better against the adjoining tile floor.

Ditto what Froo says. Plus you see the wood grain detail on the orangier tile. It's lighter and brighter too. Nice choice.

I like the orangey one better too. It matches your tile plus the wood door.
Are you doing all this yourself always? Or is someone helping you. Just curious Smile

One of the maintenance guys at my work does side work. He can do the tile, baseboard and toilet install etc. I will have the paint done by one of my brothers workers. But I don't mind doing the demo work because I don't want to pay someone for something I can do myself.

I agree the orange one DOES look better if matching to tile but that begs to ask what do you have planned for the theming and colors in that space? By itself I like the darker one, but depends on the surrounds of the bathroom to me more than the adjoining room. One thing to consider, I had been looking at those same tiles from another tile store for my entry and noticed the color wasn't too deep into the tile...one little nick and a light color is exposed....I now look for tiles that have color running through them if possible for wear factor....

I noticed the same thing regarding chips.

Initially I thought for sure I'd want the darker tile and could still go that way. I had white tile that didn't tie in to the terra-cotta tile from the hallway at all and it didn't bother me.

What is funny though, I liked the orangier one better ONLY because it tied into the terra-cotta tile in the hallway and DD says "I like the darker one better"...

I went and took a look at the wood look tile at Lowes but like ones Home Depot carried better. The ones at Lowes have a smoother finish and I didn't really like the colors that well. I like the more rustic look of the tile HD carries.

I found my tile at last at a place contractors go to for theirs...the wholesaler....not advertised per se...but they let me order, guess contractors save an additional 20% but ooooh the variety, and I liked that they had better stuff and some of it was clearanced out or limited stock to fit my project...I ended up getting 6 X 6 for my entry and it had been 7.19 I got it for .99 sq ft! Smile It had so much rustic variety to it and maybe 6-7 different hues of browns that if chipped and I colored it in with a marker it will not show! That was my thinking anyway....

That is what I like about the darker more rustic...more woody...so if your gut says that is right for THAT space I think you should go for it! Big Grin LOL the fellow before me loved grey and put it in every single permanent surface in all rooms EXCEPT one bathroom that he did lemon yellow...go figure! Roll Eyes
