    Looking for anyone who may have a spare/extra bath tile as pictured. It’s a beige in color. I cannot find the match and hopeful someone may have some spare tiles lying around.

    contractor had to break it to access the leaky pipe.

    Have you tried Home Depot, Lowe’s, any tile shop? If it’s original from builder, you may want to call Van Metre or the original builder as they may know where it came from!

    Van Metre used some limited tiles back when our home was built in 03. Back in 07 when we did our kitchen remodel our contractor could only find 1 box in the entire country of our tile. Best of luck but you may have to settle for close enough

    Wow!!! That's amazing that only 1 box was left! Did you find the manufacturer/company that produced them on that 1 box?

    Yes, they did find the manufacturer and they had discontinued the tile in 04 or 05. VM actually knew who it was and our contractor worked with them to find it. It's been many years but I believe it was some Italian company and all of the known distributors were out of the tile we have in 07. We were lucky the contractor found a box. One box was not enough for our project though. Move our fridge and you will find a completely different tile.
