The sunroom is really coming along! With the windows installed and the siding on it really looks like part of the house now.

I have a decision to make and I would really appreciate everyone’s opinion, so please leave me a comment with your # 1 choice.

I’ve got my tile choices down to two and now I’m stuck.

As you can see Mr.C and I built the first part of the DIY sectional window seat and I found some cushions … ON CLEARANCE!!!! YAY!!!



(please ignore the cat hair!)

Both tile choices blend well with the cushions.

They are 18”x18”

The grout I plan to use will be a dark brown, very close in color to the darker tile. So if I go with the darker tile, the grout will blend right in, while if I go with the lighter tile there will be more of a contrast. I have to say that while the darker tile looks pretty much as pictured, the lighter tile is much more of a sandy goldish color than it appears in the photos. 

I’m torn… help me choose!

  1. If you truly don’t have a preference, I’ll just share my experience with you. I wanted a “cottage” look when we put down our tile, so I chose a beautiful white tile. I didn’t count on the mess that three dogs we have would make, which means that my floor NEVER looks clean — and not just the grout, really the whole floor. From this point on, I personally will go with the darkest flooring that still matches what I am wanting to do. If that isn’t going to be a problem for you to consider, then I really think they are both pretty (although I’m still leaning toward the darker one).

      Thanks Lori, That is precisely why I’m going with the mottled look and with dark grout! I think both will be good as far as not showing dirt.

  2. My vote is for the darker one, though both are nice. I like the darker one because it would be much like a dirt floor, in your “Nature Room”… just a thought 😉

    Another vote for the darker! 🙂

    I´d prefer the lighter version, it goes better with the other colors in the room…just my opinion … but the darker one is pretty, too. I´m having similar choices to make, too, at the moment …- we´re house-building.

    I always vote dark…it’s the color of dirt!

    You know I can’t make choices for myself, let alone YOU!
    I would ask Capri’s P & D.
    I really do like them both, hence my decision paralysis.

    I like the lighter one. It looks a lot like our flooring in the cottage . The mottled look is fantastic. Sometimes I bend over to wipe up something and discover it is just part of the design!!

    I like the lighter one…The dark one looks like the floor will alway look dirty…

  9. Kayte says:

    My vote is for the lighter one. Also, look at me commenting!!! 🙂

    I like the lighter one too. Just brightens the room.

    ******poster from the past. Your sunroom looks great!

    I like the darker one. It makes the red in the cushions pop! With the dark grout, the dark tile will look like a solid floor rather than a square here, a square there.
    Your sun room looks fabulous! Can’t wait to see the finished inside. What color will be the inside walls?
