Behold my kitchen floor tiles! Seriously, my kitchen is done in these exact tiles in the plain Antique Adobe color. Only mine are almost a decade old now, need to be resealed, and are looking a mite worse for the wear, whereas these are and eternally will be brand new. Yet another reason to envy Sims.
