My wife and I are closing on our house tomorrow. We bought the property as a forclosure so we did not have any contact with the previous owners who did the renovations. The bathroom currently does not have a mirror or medicine cabinet. We would like to install a medicine cabinet.

The problem is that the mirror that was up on the wall was bigger than any medicine cabinet.

I would love to find out the maker of the tile in the picture below so I can install a two foot medicine cabinet and tile the rest. Please help me identifty this tile.

Really cant tell but I'll guess Grespania, a pretty popular and easy to find mfgr. It may be associated with the wall tile. Are there any boxes or loose wall tile stuck in an attic, basement or garage.

The problem may be that no matter what it is, it could be old and discontinued.

Try a couple of local tile retailers, not the big box stores and see if they carry grespania or if they can id it

Thanks for the info tileguy. We bought the house as is. It was a foreclosure and it was completely cleaned out. I will look around for the tile. We were fortunate enough to find a medicine cabinet that fit in the space that didn't have tile.
