Just when I thought I’d seen everything: Stephanie discovers a stash of 1958 Universal Rundle Versa-Tiles — in seven delicious midcentury colors — in her hardware store warehouse full of new old stock. The Versa-Tile idea: Flank your Universal Rundle tile-in sink with just four of these large format tiles to create a bathroom vanity counter top that blends almost seamlessly with the sink. And, the Versa-Tile isn’t plain old ceramic tile — it’s made of vitreous china, just like the sink. As long as you don’t scratch that shiny surface, you were likely good to do for decades. Like I said, I’ve never seen this before — what a find — it goes straight into our woddity archive.
Look closely and it appears the Versa-Tiles came bullnosed on the front apron of the tile, as well as bullnosed around the corner and shorter side edge, in case you wanted to make a stand-alone vanity.
Came across these today. Never seen anything like it. Made by UR. 6 different colors. You create your own countertops. These are called Versa-Tile. Have you ever seen these? Backs are stamped with 1958 dates. Each piece is 18 x 6 inches.
Tricky because you’ll need to find the exact correct sink to match this with for this to work.
