Thanks Bill

I read all your posts about building niches and I think my first shower job came out better than I had expected. Thanks for answering a couple questsions by phone too. The tip to do the ceiling on the diagonal was a life saver I think - I can't imagine if I had tried to line up the grout lines on all three walls and the ceiling!

It's not easy getting close ups, but here are some bigger/ closer pics of just the shower and the stone. Also I **think** the wall color is BM Hollingsworth Green, but I will need to double check it!

Just so you can see the difference, here's my shower (also bigger than 60X 34, but not that much), with 12" tiles.

Powder Room Sneek Peek - Also Totally Different!

posted by: hobokenkitchen on 07.01.2007 at 07:47 pm in Bathrooms Forum

The powder room is the last bath we have to finish - it's been a long road! : )

This the Porcher Ovale cabinet with an Oceana glass sink and Toto Pacifica two piece toilet.
The floor is one of my favorite things about this bathroom. I guess the color is a bit bold, but we like it! Again totally different to the other two baths.

Obviously this one is still missing a faucet!

Our other two baths as a reminder and so you can see them all in one spot:

RE: Gap between tub & floor tile - what to do? (Follow-Up #5)

posted by: budge1 on 07.01.2007 at 11:20 am in Bathrooms Forum

Well, there is no way they are putting a pIece of vinyl base -I'm picturing a wide strip of ugly stuff like they use in commercial locations between the rug and the wall - maybe you are thinking of something else.

What about a well primed and painted piece of wooden quarter round or other nice looking trim? Could we caulk the seam and then apply the trim and then caulk the edges of the trim between the tub and floor?

I took a couple of pictures and I don't think the gap is quite as wide as in Bill's pic of the motel.

RE: Help with Tile Design - Subway & Glass Tile (Follow-Up #21)

posted by: soonermagic on 06.24.2007 at 10:04 pm in Bathrooms Forum

Just wanted to post a progress pic. We're still quite a way from finishing up this bathroom, but the tile install is going great so far.

The curbs on the floor and ceiling will be wrapped in glass tile. A vertical stripe of the glass is going under a window and the vanity area will have lots of glass tile. DH vetoed the idea of running the subway tile on the vertical rather than horizontal, but I'm liking it so far.

Here is our girl's bathroom - ok - maybe we made it too busy - but we have fun with it now. We love this tile.

The yellowish color above the blue tile insert is just the shadow from the valance.

RE: Using two borders? Pics please (Follow-Up #5)

posted by: kesslerou on 10.10.2007 at 01:41 pm in Bathrooms Forum

We tiled this shower about 3 years ago. We used two rows of horizontal stripes and one vertical stripe. The horizontal stripe carried into the bathtub and the entire bath surround was the small tile.
I realize you have a tub and not shower, this is a pattern and it worked well for us to think outside of the box.

RE: Using two borders? Pics please (Follow-Up #14)

posted by: cindyandmocha on 10.15.2007 at 07:36 pm in Bathrooms Forum

Here are a few ideas some may have already mentioned...

- You could use some of them to do a "rug border" on the floor.

- Use a wider border around the room.

- Use some on a countertop for a border. I have a pic of my floating vanity below.

- Sell the leftovers on ebay at a discount.

- Maybe use some for the tub deck if you have one.

- Perhaps do a couple of shower niche's and use them as the background of the niche. I didn't use them in my shower niche, but I did use them in a niche in the bathroom. Pic below also.
