    We have a 1929 brick tudor style home on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle. We are in the process of remodeling the kitchen and two bathrooms. In the kitchen we hoping to have cherry wood with raised panel doors cabinets and granite counter tops. We would like to find granite with some movement in the components and in a color that would pick up a little of the cabinet color, and the floor tiles which we have not selected either.

    The floor tiles, are there some no-no’s about which to be careful. What size of tile is appropriate, is 12 x12 placed in a diamond pattern okay? The kitchen and nook floor area is about 250 square feet. There is white 6+/- high floor molding to which we plan to add white 1/4 round along the bottom edge to transition to the ceramic or porcelain tile.

    The main bath near the kitchen has a floor of small hexigon or octigon shaped black and while tiles with black base along the walls. I need to replace the white tile around the tub and redo the plumbing completely, but would like to have a wainscot around the rest of the room, and am thinking it should also be white. The tile size is 4×4, should I remain with that size? And can I put a black trim along the top edge of the wainscot?

    Any thoughts you have would be appreciated.
    Thank you,
    John Kloster

    I had Ceramic 18″ Floor Tiles put throughout my home nearly 5 years ago. My handy husband decided to remove the grout from the floor tiles that are cracked, around and under the couches with some kind of rotary saw. However I only have 9 replacement tiles and I have 13 tiles that are cracked. I can give you all the information from the tile box. If you are able to help me, please, please let us know. They are Ceramic Floor tiles; 18″ square; Made in Spain; SHADE-T09 C5: MAY 17, 2006; UPS CODE #8426611452854. Thank You

    Do you fabricate/replicate tiles? I have a 9.75″ X 9.75″ floor tile that is 30 years old. Have photos and pieces I can send, but have no other information. We would need 2 tiles made. Thank you.
