Tile Selection

We took our feature tile to the tile shop, where we have a $25 allowance.
We just went to go and have a look and walked out with bathroom, splashback and floor tiles chosen, now we need to work out bathroom tiles for other two bathrooms and we are done!
So after umming and ahhhing we have decided that we will go white wall tiles, which we will buy to cover to the ceiling and tile these ourselves after the build. A charcoal floor tile to bring out our feature tile, which is charcoal and will be on both walls in the main bathroom upstairs.

Our splash back is 600 by 600 mocha glass porcelin tile, which we will have to pay $29 dollars per tile saving us about $1000 for the actually glass splashback.

Then we found a nice floor tile, watching our pennies we have gone for a small tile, as much as we loved the 600 by 600, just couldnt justify spending more. So we have the same tile 400 by 400 and all of our selections, except splashback are under budget.
We are extremely happy with our selections, here is a sample of our bathroom tiles.
