Hi. I have a 1940's cape cod. Some day, I'm going to re-tile the bath, but in the near future, I'd prefer to fix 2 tiles that an electrician destroyed when he accidently poked through the wall completely with his hammer drill. argh.
I don't need a 100% match or an actual vintage tile, but something that says, hey, he made a reasonable attempt to make it look good.
They are a dark red almost maroon at the base of the wall. The have a cove profile on the bottom edge and are 4.25 inches wide and 5 inches tall. I figured, worst case I could cut a 6x6 tile down if this isn't a normal size.
On the floor there are several hexagon tiles along the edge that were cracked too. They appear to abe about 2 inches or so and are an off white. sort of a creamy color with a touch of yellow.
Are there any good online tile distributors that might have something like this?
Any advice on extracting the tile? I have a fein multimaster and some grout blades, so I figured I'd extract the old tiles and go from there.
I also imagine worst case, If I can't find a 5 inch tile, I could try to use the multimaster to cut the bottom 4 inches off and only replace that..
