First, I do apologize for such a long time since my last post. Back to back to back illnesses have kept me from doing anything besides go to work and eat and sleep for the past week and a half, so I’m a bit behind on the blogging! The work on the bathroom, however, continues unabated!
In my last update I mentioned that our walls were up. It was nice to see better what the space would actually feel like since we were completely changing the footprint of the new bathroom; however, just some new walls aren’t all that exciting.
Walls with tile though? That’s pretty exciting!
I love the way the tub area turned out with the white subway tile and light gray grout. I think the look is so classic and crisp. It definitely reminds me of the shower area at our previous place, which we also loved! And that Kohler soaking tub we picked out? Well, let’s just say I can’t wait for the first bath in that beauty! It sure got some rave reviews on Home Depot’s website for being a great place to unwind after a busy day.
But the piece de resistance? Check out the floor! I couldn’t be more pleased with our choice of the hexagonal marble tile!
It has a lovely sheen, and I love the beautiful natural variation in the color and veining across each tile. It really keeps an otherwise rather white and neutral space from being boring. The best part? Underneath we laid radiant heat to help out the tootsies on the many 6:00am showers I’ll be taking during the frigid Chicago Winter! Here’s one more shot of the hex tile where you can really see the natural variation!
