The tile selection process was long, but definitely worth it. We took our time selecting a unique tile style (yeah, I know) for each bath. The master bath was the one that we had the most trouble with, but were also the most careful and picky about. After all, it was where we’d be doing most of our showering.
We were lucky enough to have the room to build a separate shower from the tub but wanted some unity throughout the bathroom. Selecting tile was interesting for this, but we settled on this stone tile for both the shower and tub surrounding:
It’s a nice neutral gray that will complement the wood floors that we settled on for the Master Bath.
Our tile master, Augustin, has started work on the bath surround (below) and in the coming days will start work on the shower.
Augustin works slow, but is extremely thorough and careful. He even humored our harebrained idea to mimic the water that flows down from the faucet and showerhead (in the shower). Cool idea right? Yeah, not exactly ours; we stole it from Sunset magazine. The original inspiration:
Our “water” is going to be white stone in the same pattern as the grey and it won’t pool at the floor like the picture above, but it will be mimicked in the shower as well with the floor of the shower being the same white stone. The nice thing about places like eBay is that you can buy just the right amount of tile for each bath and still get a screamin’ deal. Hopefully our bath ends up looking as good as the picture here. We’ll post more pictures as soon as Augustin finishes.
