Has anyone used these tiles in their bathroom? Would love to see how they been used by others. Thanks!
Yeoman's is great ..awesome service ..Hampton for me the other one is too busy makes me dizzy just looking at it ..
don't like the bevelled subway ..not used to it bevelled
Hampton it is (finally got hubby to take a look and give the OK) and will look into largish plain white and some nice floor tiles to give with it. Thanks for all the opinions! Excited!!
I've built several houses and the one thing I've learned is keep it simple. Anything patterned will date as tile manufacturers are driving change to keep fashion evolving and to sell more tiles. I'm not mad keen on subway with bevelled edges to be honest, Too much grout. I prefer large format white and if you want to add interest there's a multitude of interesting patterns that can be created on the floor with inexpensive tiles laid in patterns. You can add colour and interest in your choice of towels and window blind, even artwork. Things that cost nothing and instantly update the bathroom colour scheme.
Relle Belle looks amazing ..love it..
Hi Relle Belle that looks so fresh and pretty! We have our tiles sitting in dining room ready for hubby to get to them but life and work slowing things down. Midway through bathroom Reno. We went with the hamptons design in the mineral colour (very very light blue/green colour) and will have same size tiles in white on other walls as suggested above. Very excited to see the finished result
I would also be worried about a bevelled subway tile dating. Too much structure for my liking and very overdone at the moment.
Hi I am planning to use the Hampton in Millpond colour as a feature wall in my ensuite reno, the other 3 walls will be white large format gloss tiles but I am struggling big time with a choice for the floor. The room has jarrah coloured floor boards. I love terracotta floor tiles but think this will look all wrong. Has anyone got any suggestions for a floor tile? If I can't be sure I've found something that will work then I might just go a terracotta tile on the floor with all white walls and introduce the colour with accents. I usually don't opt out of bold choices though so hope I can find something that will work as I love the Millpond colour! Hope someone can help :-)
Hi Heidi, we have just done an ensuite - sounds similar. One wall is inifinity centris in millpond, the other walls are large satin white tiles. For the floor we used a charcoal colour. Pic attached. Its not quite finished so a bit dusty.
A (very) slow work in progress but hubby has finally got our tiles in and grouted. Yay! Obviously still need to silicone gap fill but very pleased with the way the bath tap holes match up to the 3D tile pattern.
Freestanding French tub, single panel shower screen, heritage style exposed rail shower to come. The marble was repurposed from the vanity splashback
any other infinity pics? just ordered hampton in whisper for kitchen splash. just bit worried it might be bit too much?
The texture doesn't come up well in photo from a distance, but here is our slow to move forward DIY bathroom pre-painting.
Have you had the opportunity to see the tile in real life? The depth of the texture is relatively small so it comes across fairly subtle in my opinion. Here is a pic of a scrap piece to demonstrate.
I love this tile, and love the colour you have chosen.
Ive just finished installing infinity koi-millpond in the bathroom with Ardex Magellan grey grout (best match I could find and goes with the floor). Am pretty disappointed with the finish, as the window over casts of a shadow on the rippled patten at the grout line. Has the effect of making the joint line look different widths and like the grout is dirty already on day one!
Just wondering what grout colour others have used with these tiles- as I'm not happy with the look and
I'm just waiting on Hampton in feather for my splash back - love the samplevtike but am slightly nervous how it will look with everything else once up!
@Haim I'd also be very interested in what colour grout people are using with Millpond colour.... the inability to match one is putting me off using them!
For millpond grout discussion see here: https://www.houzz.com.au/products/infinity-tile-prvw-vr~43604895
Unfortunately the type suggested as best match sounds like it was discontinued. Nevertheless, the recommendation was for this brand from here: https://tilegrout.com.au/shop/product/ultracolor-plus/
Perhaps try a sample of turquoise or ask their advice? ...You might be able mix your own match...
Your tiles look great scottevie - and how did you match the grout so well? colour is lovely and fresh - I'm bit worried my whisper tiles might look bit dirty as my neighbour pointed out the other day : / oh well too late now...
A good heads up from Haim.
To anyone cutting these beautiful tiles, highly glossy or glass-faced tiles, or vitrified (hard) porcelain tiles -
Always use a new/sharp diamond blade, whether using an angle grinder or a wetsaw. Best to use a continuous rim (soft tiles only) or thin mesh type blade (good for all). The BD-MTR-105 blade by BAT is by far the best all rounder we've come across, and reasonably priced (not cheap, but generally under $50, and they last the full job with most tile types). If you're using an angle grinder then a spray bottle with water in can help, or even a hose trickling on the tile surface as you cut. And running a fine abrasive wheel (eg. DTA PVA100060) along the edge by hand once cut will smooth any tiny sharp bits. Plus, if you've got a fair bit of tiling to do / a couple bathrooms to tile, investing in a little benchtop wetsaw or freestanding wetsaw is well worth it, since you can pick up a suitably decent one for between $300-$600 plus the cost of a good blade (don't bother with the 'ceramic' blade they usually come with if you've got anything more than a few wall tiles to cut). After all, if you're spending upwards of $600 on your tiles then it's worth the peace of mind and a job well done (and faster). Just make sure if you get a freestanding wetsaw that the cutting length/deck is at least as long as your tile (over 600mm and you'll need a benchtop model, or a pro saw and more money).
Heidi Allen, I am using the millpond tiles as a feature with gloss white tiles in our small bathroom and wondered how you got on with yours. what grout did you use and are you happy with the millpond tile with the gloss. Thanks
I use these all the time .. a kitchen splashback and an ensuite. can never go wrong.I am looking at doing the beige fish scales in a bathroom has anyone used this?
