Tiling the Master Bathroom

We have more progress to share with our renovations!

David and I opted to install [easyazon_link identifier=”B01F2OTW98″ locale=”US” tag=”farmhouse020-20″]heated floors[/easyazon_link] in the master bathroom because the room only has one air vent for the high velocity heating, and also… if we’re only going to have one bathroom for the rest of our lives, might as well make it fancy! ¬†ūüôā

Below are some pictures of our little helper trying out the floor tiles that are laid on the heated floor subfloor.

Good thing, because we got a lot of those tiles. ¬†We ordered from Sarisand Tile in Charlottesville and were really impressed with the customer service and prices– I highly recommend them (and no, they’re not paying me to say that! ¬†Haha).

We used the same tile on the floor as we did on the bottom half of the walls.

It looks a lot like marble but it’s actually faux [easyazon_link identifier=”B06VTBVRWX” locale=”US” tag=”farmhouse020-20″]Calacatta Gold marble[/easyazon_link]. ¬†Apparently each of the tiles are printed by a printer but each piece is unique.

Below you can see the nook for the toilet and the shower with a shower bench. ¬†Starting to come together…

Above the faux big marble tiles we installed a real marble chair rail. ¬†You can’t even tell the stuff below it is fake when they’re touching each other!

Below is the little shelf in the shower.  The hexagon tiles in the back are real marble; everything else surrounding it is fake.

Here’s a picture of the shower from a far back view so you can see the whole thing. ¬†2016-03-15 13.21.29

I’m impressed with how the arch was able to come together; you can totally see in this picture how it’s going to end up looking!

Below you can see the trim around the shower and all the finished tilework!  You can also see the shower floor is the same hexagon as the back of the shelf nook thing.

Final picture: check out the intense electrical/ plumbing panel in the wall. ¬†I’m not sure how but it’ll be used to connect the dots somehow.

Anyway, it’s soooo close to being done!! ¬†I’ll share more progress later, promise!
