I would prefer to have the same tile all the way through the bottom floor, laundry, powder etc. I think upstairs doesn't matter so much in bathrooms but again, the new tile would be better, even though I think it would be 100% fine to have a different one, it would probably bother me down the track.
Hope it all works out for you.
Actually thinking about it more, it could be nice to have a different tile in bathrooms etc to living, to separate the areas. I guess it's out of your hands anyway, but I'd be happy either way.
Nice to know that you both like the tiles...
We like both tiles.. but the new tile would look better with our benchtop and paint colours.
DH was of that opinion too... to have different tile in wet areas and living.
We're still awaiting our CSR's response.
We already ordered the new tiles yesterday (to lock in the discounted price) and will put in a deposit on Saturday. If our builder approves our request, we will just add more tiles for the wet areas.
The tile supplier agreed that delivery of the tiles would be sometime in Sept... handover date.
