Anyone know a place that can match bathroom tile color from 1959?

I had 3 bullnose trim tiles fall off. I grabbed all but one. The one that broke was not repairable, like gluing the many pieces it broke into. I was even thinking of taking down all the bullnose trim and replace it with another contrasting or matching the rest of the tile. Any ideas?

  • well sinceyou have some survivors you could take one with you when you go shopping. if they don't have a good match in a regular store you could always try a salvage yard if there is one local to you. you could also search the internet for places that reproduce vintage tile but matching the color is going to be your hardest part since bullnose tile isn't hard to find. gl! i had to replace some maroon bullnose in my old house. talk about a long quest lmao

  • did you try craigslist? Seriously, some people who have demo'd their bathroom save the tiles and try to sell them.
