Design question (OT?)

Well, we're 1/3 of the way into the infamous 35-year-old-cracked-slab tile job. The tile is a cinnamon/rust color (see this thread with photo of the tile). Someone suggested we continue this tile down the hall, where we were planning to lay wood. There is a bathroom in the hallway that has white tile on the floor with 3" denim-blue squares in the corners of the white tile (the bathroom with the multi-blue shower tub surround I posted about last month).

I'm wondering how the cinnamon/rust tile would look adjoining a room with the white tile. If we were starting the entire house from scratch, we probably wouldn't select the white tile for the bathroom floor if the hallway had the cinnamon/rust tile.

Anyone have any comments?

Hi Jen,
You could use a threshold 'saddle"/plinth to bridge the doorway and seperate the two dissimilar materials?

Shaughnn, we will definitely use a transition piece. We've decided to have the hallway tiled too and will order the tile for that this weekend (to make sure we get it from the same dye lot as the tile being installed today).

Thanks!

Jen --

That's probably the better decision. Moat homes look better when flooring flows from one area to another rather than changing at every doorway. A piece of white marble the width of the door jambs would make an excellent threshold for the bathroom.

And speaking of that bathroom, have you hung the curved shower rod yet?

Thanks Jeff. Would white marble look good next to that rustic brown tile?

Regarding the shower curtain rod... no, not yet. We need to buy it first. :-)
