My bathroom

I finally got a chance to remodel one of my own bathrooms.
 The floor I picked out was 18x18 Magma charcoal porcelain. I also used the same as a sanitary base with bronze L channel on top for a clean contemporary finished look.
 The shower was a 2'6"x2'6" insert, soffited down from the ceiling which I removed, took out the soffit and enlarged the shower to a dimension of 3'x4'. For the walls I used a 12x24 Classico Beige porcelain laid out in a vertical subway pattern. Then Mongolian Desert Corinth slate bordered by Sahara Beige natural stone pencil for a horizontal decorative look. The shower is also edged with the bronze L channel.
  For the pan I used the same Mongolian Desert slate but in a 2x2.
  The inset shampoo shelf I made the same size as the wall tile, then backed it with the Corinth.
  Then for the curb I used Sahara Beige natural stone and topped with a Kohler frameless glass sliding door.
   I used the Corinth and L channel as a backsplash for the granite counter top. The vanity is Maple and custom made.
   The tub surround is the same Classico Beige tile as the shower but installed  in a horizontal subway pattern wrapped in bronze L channel.
   All fixtures are oil rubbed bronze.

They chose a "Bucak Medley Vein Amalfi" Travertine tile in a subway fashion.
The colors they chose worked very well with the countertops and paint.

Orono bathroom remodel

Dave and Deb S. of Orono, hired us to remodel their guest bathroom. We removed a seperation toor, tub and shower surround and replaced it with a walkin shower. We used 2x2 mosaic porcelain tiles on the pan, 12x24 "waterfall grey" porcelain tiles on the walls along with a focal point of mixed mosaics running down from ceiling to pan and also over the curb. We used the same materials to tile a recessed shampoo shelf.

We removed old tile flooring and installed an infloor heating system, then used 18x18 porcelain tiles and bullnose tiles for a sanitary base.

We used the same mixed mosaics as an added backsplash deco above new vanity and counter.

The Minnetonks Country Club hired me to reface their dining room fireplace. We used a combination of ledger stone and slate.
