Here are two similar looks, but the pricing on these are very different. Can you tell which is the more expensive (as in $1,000.00 more)?
In the first image, they have used a basic subway tile and simply laid it out in the a herringbone pattern to get the look. In the second image, those tiles have each been hand cut on a perfect angle to match up with the adjoining tile to create a chevron pattern. So, image number two is the more expensive due to the additional labor required of the tile work.
I think as the chevron pattern becomes more popular, we will begin to see ready made parallelogram shaped tiles (my son would be so proud I worked in "parallelogram") in the real stone/marble tiles.
Here are just a few more to consider in some lovely rooms.
Have a wonderful day! M.
