Tile is Complete

 

The tile is fully installed!  We had a wonderful, very experienced contractor install the tile in the powder room, laundry room, kids' bathroom and ensuite.  He was exceptional because he wasn't bothered by me checking in on the progress several times a day, put up with my questions and design changes, and always checked in to see if we were satisfied with his work before moving on.  And he was good to the kids and the dog.  Couldn't ask for more than that.

The photo above is the powder room.  It's oriental marble hexagon.  It's tough to get a good photo in such a small space and this doesn't do it justice!  The white pedestal sink will be centered on the tile and the top of the sink will be approximately four inches below the top of the tile.

Below is the tiled 'pan' that the washer and dryer will sit in.  Because the laundry room is on the second floor, it's recommended that there is a liner and curb (short ledge at front) to protect the floor and first floor ceiling in case of a water leak.  The tiler did such a nice job, it's a shame that the washer and dryer will cover most of the tile!


The kids' bathroom tub / shower surround is a creamy white 3" x 5" subway tile.  I'm hoping the subway tile will add a classic look.  


The ensuite shower has the same creamy white 3" x 5" subway tile, with a white hexagon floor (and dark border.

Lately, I seemed to get asked a lot when our MOVE-IN day is.  Officially?  Christmas 2012 2013 ;)

  1. Hello, I love your blog! My husband and I are updating our kitchen and we're looking for new backsplash tiles. We love the hexagon tiles you have used in your powder room. Wondering if you might share what tiles you used there? They would go perfectly in our new kitchen! Are they from Olympia Tile, by chance? Thank you!

  2. Hi Wendy,

    They're from Saltillo Tile in Toronto. Olympia does have similar tiles but they are smaller. These are the 2" (I believe) and they are oriental marble. I love the fact that they have a slight gold undertone instead of the cool undertones of Carrara marble. We're using a polished nickel widespread faucet so I think it will well with the undertones. Thanks for reading!

  3. I like the Hexagonal floor Tile Band and Dot Tumbled. But that may be more about the lighting in the photo, than the actual product.
