posted by: lauren674 on 09.21.2008 at 09:55 am in Bathrooms Forum

We are nearly there, just waiting for the shower door, tp holder, a few hooks. So, here's some before/afters. Its a very narrow bathroom so hard to get some pics, but here are a few 3 years aft we started:

There is a company that makes GREAT pocket door hardware. Expensive as all get out, but really solid, wonderful stuff.

Thanks very much czoot, napagirl & fullpass.

Fullypass: Yes the shower door was custom. I think that is the only option when you have a space like mine but I could be wrong. We didn't use a pre-fab shower pan...its cement underneath the tiles. The contractor made the cement shower pan as one of the first things done and then they had water sit in a while to make sure it was waterproof. Then the tiles were added on top.

Czoot - So far, its been very simple to keep clean. Im sure we should use some sort of special cleaner, but we don't. Just the regular floor cleaner we've use all over the house.

Closeup of the tile (Follow-Up #46)

Finally got the photo to upload. I have to say, this photo doesn't make these tiles look very appealing but they look much cleaner/soothing in person.

I don't think it matters much but I used a pale green grout for the floor.

Thanks.

I got the tiles at a local supplier (http://www.classictileny.com/) - the marble basketweave on the floor was $19/sq foot. The wall tile was very cheap - something like $1.50/sq foot?

Toilet seat won't be installed until the workers are gone. I want to keep that just for me :)

My master bathroom is finally finished. I nearing the end of a long gut renovation and I wanted to share the sole completed room in the entire house! Size is approx 10x5ft in a 100 year old home.

FinishedBath
Sorry about the lighting in these photos. I need to add bulbs in the sconces.

Floor tiles: Marble basketweave with ming dot accents
Wall tiles: The no name subway tile that was in stock at tile shop finished with victorian cap
Vanity, Medcine Cabinets, Lights, Shelves, Faucet, Towel Bar: Restoration Hardware
Toilet: Toto Promenade
Wall Color: Quiet Moments by Benjamin Moore
Shower: Sign of the Crab exposed with handheld

Im planning on adding some fluffy towels, a potted orchid, some photographs on the far wall and teak bench to finish it off. Any other suggestions appreciated.

Just wanted to thank everyone on this board for being such a great resource. I come here with questions and always leave with an answer from a simple search or posted question.

My DIY circa 1910 Bathroom

posted by: sombreuil_mongrel on 06.02.2008 at 09:49 pm in Bathrooms Forum

Hi,
I started this in March, and thankfully it was finished faster than my DIY kitchen (at 15 months, that was an ordeal nonpareil).

Here's a link to Alabama marble which carries basket weave tile. You have to email for the price but the price on their other tile is excellent.

I've been searching for a decently priced ceramic basketweave -- I found something called UMI ceramic basketweave at a local tile store -- it's on mesh and $6.95 a square foot. Has anyone ever heard of the company? The website is below. Thanks!

I think both Ann Sacks and Walker Zanger have about the same pricing but I think Walker's material are much better in my opinion and they have showrooms and distributors everywhere. I recently visited their site and saw their newly redesigned site. Wow it was nice. I love the flash page flipping thing...pretty neat and easy to use. I wish Ann Sacks and other tile companies has that too! I did a little digging...Preface8 eCatalog is what they use..very cool technology!

RE: contrasting trim with white subway tile (Follow-Up #3)

I used daltile 101 and bananappeal crown and pencil trim they fit beautifully together. I did my trim in white and you'd never know they weren't the same company.

RE: Help with flooring and white subway tile (Follow-Up #7)

posted by: november on 10.03.2008 at 10:02 pm in Bathrooms Forum

Here's our newly-renovated (and very tiny!) master bath, with espresso vanity, white subway tile in the shower, white tile floor, and bead board walls. The floor is marble-looking ceramic tile (white and gray), and the vanity top is carrera marble. The shower is white subway tile with light gray grout, and we used the same color grout on the floor. I'm sorry the picture is sideways - I corrected it in photobucket, but it still won't show up straight when I paste it here.
