As I made my way up the staircase and turned the corner, I was so excited to see tile in the kids' bathroom! That excitement quickly faded when I realized that it was the wrong color. The second thing I noticed was that we had paid extra to have the floor tile put on the diagonal and it was not.

Floor tile should be on the diagonal.

I'm trying to remain calm because these things are fixable, right? Then I looked over at the tub again. Hmmm...that tile above the tub looks a little off--it's slanted. We grabbed the level and discovered that it's not the tile that's slanted, it's the window over the tub! This is the same crooked window that I had pointed out to the PM at the pre-drywall meeting. It was not fixed and now that part of the bathroom looks like a fun house. Admittedly, I am on the picky side about symmetry, but this is beyond obvious. I can't walk in there everyday and look at that. It will drive me insane. So, I'm not sure how they'll fix that problem, but something needs to be done. Also, upon closer inspection, we noticed that the tub itself is slanted, which makes the tile on the front of the tub look uneven. Good grief!

In an effort to end on a positive note, I would just like to say that I love our tile choice in the master bath! :) I'm also glad we caught this before they grouted.
Happy New Year, everyone!!
UPDATE: I need to clarify so people don't think that this tile craziness happened out of nowhere. We had put in a change request for all of the items mentioned (almond tile in hall bath, all floor tile on the diagonal) and it was approved. For some reason, there was a mix-up and the flooring company followed our original order and not the change request. The flooring company did what any reputable company would do--they worked with us to make it right. It's all fixed!
