I’m still not fully believing it is Friday again already. But that’s what my calendar is telling me, so I suppose there’s no denying it. I’m pretty sure it’s Monday, actually – it feels that way, after I inadvertently prematurely published those first two sentences yesterday (on Thursday). Oops. I wish it were a Sunday. That’s my fun day. My I-don’t-have-to-run-day. Anyway…
For the first time ever/so far, I’m featuring a tile as a #FFFFind. I’ve been shopping tile a lot lately – even more than fabric (which I never thought possible). Of course, I’m always on the lookout for tile that looks incredibly rich, natural and maybe even delicate, but is actually budget-friendly and tough-as-nails.
Tilebar’s Simple White Crystallized Thassos Tile is a composite tile made with a sintering process, similar to Dekton and Neolith (and others), which fuses a concoction of glass and minerals to porcelain. The result is a very good facsimile of sleek, bright white, crystalline Thassos marble which is 100% non-porous, stain proof (note: does not apply to the grout!), exceptionally hard, and economically priced between $8 and $11 per square foot.
The photos cannot really do them justice. I received a sample binder the other day, and was pretty blown away by the subtlety and richness of the tile’s surface.
You could really design a complete, gorgeous bathroom just using the various sizes and shapes available. There’s even a 2×2 for a shower floor. I especially love the 10″ hex.
I already have a project in mind to Tilebar’s Simply White Crystallized Thassos. How about you?
I, too, have that binder, and it’s great! Tilebar has some really wonderful and affordable options, and I’ve found the service to be really good as well.
Your article helped me a lot, thanks for the information. I also like your blog theme, can you tell me how you did it?
