I recommend travertine for a more durable floor tile. I've attached some suggestions: Mina Giallo and Oasis Walnut.

    Hi, I am planning on marble tiles in my foyer but the adjoining dining room has medium/dark Oak hardwood floors. What color marble would be suitable in a setup as such. Would like it to look coordinated and not choppy.

    Are you still having problems?
  • Sandra Ullah 03:03AM, Sep 29 2011 tried to use the program to get an estimate--it appears to be stuck on the tutorial--so I have no idea how much my piece of marble will cost.

    07:04PM, Sep 20 2011 Sounds like a good idea. Take a look at BM "Silver Cloud".
  • R Shousterman 07:06PM, Sep 19 2011 Grayish understones might work as the fixtures are brushed nickel.

    06:36PM, Sep 8 2011 For the walls, a light and clean color tone such as Benjamin Moore "Linen White" is appropriate. I've attached an image for your reference. You can also use a wall color with some slight grayish undertones (unlike Linen White). Let me know if you'd like a suggestion of a color in that scheme also, or are you fine with my Linen White suggestion?
  • R Shousterman 04:59PM, Sep 8 2011 Thanks Derek.  We are doing this long distance and it is very difficult.  We cannot look at anything in person.

    If we do go with Typhoon Bordeaux as the countertop, any suggestion for paint?

    06:32PM, Sep 7 2011 The Typhoon Bordeaux would be for the vanity top in the bathroom, the countertop. The travertine would be the tile used on the wall and floor, correct? That is what I'm referring to. These has been so many granite options suggested to you throughout the conversation, but remember that the final decision is up to you! Are you able to look at the full slabs in-person? If so, you should look at the full slabs ASAP! And bring a cabinet sample with you to put against the various colors to see how you like the combination. If you're not able to look at the full slabs, then at least inquire about samples of the stones, and take them home to see how they look against the cabinets in the bathroom lightning. Let me know what you end up choosing, you're on the right track!
  • R Shousterman 07:29PM, Sep 5 2011 Derek, I feel somewhat embarassed but I am not sure I understood what you wrote. 

    They are suggesting that the shower floors and walls, as well as the bathroom floor, be made of travertine with the countertop being in granite.

    You said that Typhoon Bordeaux would be your number two choice; is that for the countertop or for something else?  What would be your first choice based on the Cherry Brittany stain/Ebony glaze cabinetry and the Classic Lite travertine?

    Have I totally misunderstood what you wrote?

    06:50PM, Sep 1 2011 Travertine used in a bathroom is totally acceptable and often done with good results. Just make sure it's sealed at least once a year to keep the stone stain resistant as travertine is naturally quite porous. However for a safer alternative, the Typhoon Bordeaux is a quite beautiful stone with rich veins and is stronger than travertine. That would be my number two choice. Hope this helps.
  • R Shousterman 02:57PM, Sep 1 2011 I'm sorry but I do not.

    Now our builder has suggested that because of the cost of the marble, we could do the bathroom in travertine.  The travertine they are suggesting for the floor and shower walls is called "classic lite".  We would keep the cherry cabinets previously referred to.

    The builder is also suggesting a granite countertop in any of Typhoon Bordeaux, Kosmos, Giallo Vicenza or the infamous Suede previously mentioned.

    I think the Giallo Vicenza may be too yellow/orange.

    What can you suggest?  We are doing everything long distance and are trying to avoid making an expensive mistake.

    12:07PM, Aug 11 2011 I do not know if Suede is the same stone as Tropical Brown. Different fabricators give stones their own name, so it can get quite confusing. It can very well be that your builder's supplier has called Tropical Brown something else. Do you have a picture that I can review and compare?
  • R Shousterman 07:45PM, Aug 9 2011 I was told that marble on the vanity can be problematic as it is so soft and it can stain.
  • R Shousterman 05:31PM, Aug 9 2011 Thank you.

    Is Tropical Brown the same colour as Suede?  Our builder keeps referring to a colour called Suede and I noticed that Tropical Brown is also called Sauda Brown (or something like that).

    04:15PM, Aug 9 2011 Have you considered the timeless and always elegant marble for your master vanity? If so, I feel a stone like the Emperador Dark or Emperador Light as well as the Cedar marble would look absolutely stunning in your setup as each of these stones would provide you with a wonderful contrast while tying the space together. Let me know what you think!

    02:55PM, Aug 9 2011 You're on the right track, the natural stone will make your design look very organic. For the countertop, a color such as Tropical Brown is appropriate. If you're considering lighter choices, then Giallo Ornamental or Santa Cecilia Light are perfect to go against the darker cabinet. Good luck!
  • R Shousterman 09:24PM, Aug 7 2011 We are renovating our master bathroom.  We are looking at Cherry Fieldstone Wayburg cabinets with the Brittany Stain and Ebony Glaze.   We were thinking of botticino semi-classico (which we believe is another name for botticino fiorito) for the floor and walls of the shower.  For the shower floor we were thinking of baja creme tumbled marble tile.
    What would you suggest as a granite countertop?
