7 colors of mosaic bathroom floor tile – “Text”

I’ve featured this mosaic bathroom floor tile before on the blog via  S.J. Masters in Connecticut but it was kind of buried within another post. But Kate also spotted it on the Nemo Tile website, and this may be a more accessible place for most folks to buy it. I LOVE this stuff, especially for a modern 60s bathroom.

I was hoping to use the gray Nemo tile mosaic “text” pattern. Alas it is no longer available. According to Janice, they have lots of green and about 200 square foot of yellow.

Readers, see all our Tile Resources here, there are alternatives, including likely New Old Stock from World of Tile –> https://retrorenovation.com/category/bathroom-categories/tile/

    Just to clarify, the pressure washing cleaned the grout back to it’s original white. The grout and tiles were in good shape, but the grout was nasty (50 years of dirt) when we purchased our home.

    Hi – I just posted soemthing under the general questions, but worth writing here – I’ve uncovered tile like this just off my kitchen – but it’s all loose (like a floating crunchy floor) and no longer attached to the concrete underneath – I think I will lose my mind if I have to take up each piece to re-adhere one at a time – any ideas of how to do otherwise? They are sticking together loosly with grout, so I can get underneath a good portion of them at a time, but once handled, the grout doesn’t hold and the ‘sheet” starts bending and coming apart. The original mesh just cracks and breaks.

    I’m doing my best not to just take it all up and start over with something else… help!

    Gelcys – I responded to your other comment, but will repeat here: It’s impossible to diagnose such issues online. Moreover: PLEASE know that there can be vintage nastiness — like asbestos and lead — in old materials like the ones you are uncovering. Including in tiles of all sorts, and in their adhesives and backings. CONSULT WITH A PRO regarding what you have, and are uncovering, so that you use safe environmental and safety procedures!
