I showed you the initial pictures of one of my favorite rooms in our remodel: the mudroom.
Musts for this room were:
- serious counter space (family of 5 anyone?!),
- room for these laundry carts (which I still have not yet purchased), and
- herringbone tile floors.
Tile for function. Herringbone for style.
I’ve been receiving a lot of questions about the tile itself, so I thought I’d share our source along with details.
We chose the Capella 2×10 Brick tile in Taupe (sourced locally from here). When I looked at the sample, it actually was already in a herringbone pattern, so I knew immediately this was my stone. It’s warm, but has grey tones and helped me achieve this english cottage meets modern farmhouse vibe I was going for.
Grout is always a hard thing, and for this stone I chose a natural white color. In several other places throughout the house I chose a bright white, but I wanted something warmer that would help hide the dirt a little more since this is a mudroom after all.
Overall, I LOVE this tile.
Again, choosing a neutral pattern for this small space gave us a big impact for not a ton of dough. And something that I won’t grow weary of (I’m hoping) for many years to come!
And just for fun, here’s a quick before and after of the space:
