I absolutely loved this job. The owners have fantastic style, and I loved the tile they chose for their kitchen backsplash. The penny-round tile was all white except for just a small ornate design through the bottom. Turned out great.
Finished this shower recently and was really happy with the outcome. Such great, classic tile. Can't really go wrong with white subway. The home owner wanted white grout to give it that really classy, beautiful finish. For the shower pan (floor) we did small hex tiles with a delorian grey grout. I think it all went really well together. As always, I floated the entire shower making it completely water & bullet proof. The home owner had their shower done just a few years ago & wound up having to rip it out and start over because of leaks that caused rot. Such an important step & proof right here that if it's not done the right way, it will wind up costing you more in the long run!
This job was really awesome for me in a lot of different ways. Not only did I like the project & the way the finished product looked, but my client's may have been the nicest, coolest people I've ever met in my life. I was so spoiled being at their house & how gracious and wonderful they were!
Initially there was flagstone in the front entry and fireplace in the living room. Their vision was to get rid of the 60's vibe and bring in a more modern look with a warmer feel. Coming in to this type of situation where the flagstone isn't easy to remove, we had to go over it.
I proceeded to float right over the rock so that I was able to lay the tiles on a level, smooth surface.
They chose very large ceramic tiles and weren't wanting a trim, therefore I had to miter all of the corners. Mitering is where you cut the corners at a 45 degree angle which gives it a very clean, precise edge and a modern, tight feel with extremely small grout joints.
I love the way it turned out!
Just checking to make sure it's level….
The carpenter is coming back to put a wood cap on the top to match the fireplace mantle. It all looked fantastic and my clients were thrilled. It's amazing how much adding updated tile can change the entire look and feel of your home.
