Bathroom Remodel Tile the Wall or just Paint? Pics inside
Okay I just moved into the new house and the master bathroom is a mess. I am having a contractor work on the bathroom but I have to pick all the materials and make the choices. In the pics below you will see where the box with the lights are above the mirror above the vanity, that is being knocked down, and also the box overhang above the shower will be knocked down to give the shower more height. I will also be replacing the nasty toilet.
I will be buying this vanity
and I will be lining the whole shower walls with this mosaic glass:
Anyone have suggestions on a border in the middle for the shower as well as suggestions for what to put on the floor of the shower?
I will be using 18x18 porcelain for the floors of the bathroom itself. something similar to this: http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-25ecodZ5yc1v/R-202520251/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=porcelain&storeId=10051
Now my question is In the pictures below see how those small white tiles go along the side of the bathroom walls, what should I put there? I was thinking of putting the same porcelain tile from the bathroom floor up the walls, but the installer said he wont do a "marble like" install without a lot more money so it will be grouted". Would a better option be just to do nothing on those side walls since its not a huge bathroom to begin with, except paint it? On the wall where the existing vanity is and mirror, I am taking down that mirror, and plan to use small glass mosaic tiles to line that wall then add two mirrors. Anyone have suggestions on what color/color scheme for that wall where the mirror is to pop the bathroom but match with my shower mosaic tile?
Please help! Thank you guys soo much! Sorry for the large pics, photobucket sucks played with it for an hour and still couldnt get it resized down on here.
