Finished! Transitional white marble bathroom

PipdogAugust 22, 2012

We finally finished the upgrade of our master bath! The bath had been remodeled within the last 7-10 years by the previous owners, but it was pretty sloppy DIY job with few too many grout lines for our taste and we didn't like the tile counters. We decided to expand into a closet and make room for a separate shower.

Truth be told, I'm a little freaked out by the maintenance of the white marble (two toddlers use this bath), but so far it seems to be holding up. We did have some funky grout issues with the shower floor (efflorescence and orange spots appearing), but they seemed to have cleared up on their own. Hopefully it won't be a maintenance nightmare. If anyone has any good cleaning tips for white marble, I'd love to hear them.

I still need some artwork for the wall above the bath and some curtains, but the room is ready for prime time, and we're so happy it's over!

Details:

Calacatta Nuevo marble from AKDO - subway in shower, hex on floors and mini-bricks in niches and backsplash

Grout - White Frost by C-Cure. We originally tried Silver Shadow by Laticrete but it was too dark so we went lighter.

Counters - Caesarstone

Duravit tub

Faucets/tub fixture: Toto

Shower fixture - Raindance by Hansgrohe

BM Light Pewter

Lights - Restoration Hardware

Cabinetry - existing, sprayed with BM White Dove

Pulls from Lowes

Here's the before:

Omg! It's beautiful! I especially love the large calcutta hex tile floors! Great job!

Love how the flowers match the ducky!!!

What can I say except "perfection"?

May I just reiterate to others - look at the perfect example of why you should always use white grout with white marble.
I will refer people back to your bath whenever gray grout rears it head :)

WOWWWWWW...

It's breath-taking! I love how white and bright it is (which is good to see, because I've been worrying about too much white in my future bathroom). I love the shower fixture (and now really, really regret not buying it!!). The tile looks great, and the counters too. (I can see why you voted for Snowy quartz on my counter thread. Thank you!) And I really like the way you framed out your mirrors. Do you have 3 sconces at the vanity?

Final question: Would you please tell us the size of your shower?

thanks, everybody! I also forgot to give thanks to the collective wisdom on this site. I learned a lot by looking at inspiration photos, reading people's experience with marble, and finding information on fixtures and finishes. This is such a great forum!

kcmg, thanks for the nice words. I'm definitely a proponent of quartz counters. I like how they bring a modern vibe to the marble and also like how they let the marble be the star. Also, they are so much easier to maintain than marble counters. Our shower is 40x34. We were hemmed in by the window on the back wall. We do have 3 scones - I just noticed the photo only shows 2, but there is one to the right of the mirror on the right. The Hansgrohe shower head was a splurge and I'm so glad we did it - I just took my first shower this week and it was worth it. :)

pharaoh, thanks for the nice words. Actually, the grout is a very, very light cool gray -- it's "White Frost" from C-Cure. Even though I love the look of white grout with marble, with two kids and a big dog, I didn't want the hassle of cleaning white grout. This one has just the slightest hint of color, and I would recommend it for those using white marble. We tried about 5 different grout colors, including Silver Shadow which we used in another marble bathroom, and they were all either too dark or too beige. I nearly drove my tile installer crazy with my grout picky-ness. ;)

tartanhabit, we were very happy with our installers/contractor. It took over a week for our tile guy to install the tile, and I felt like he was taking forever, but he was meticulous and did a fantastic job. If any Angelenos need a recommendation for a good tile guy, I'm happy to refer him.

Wow this is stunning. I'm going to use this as inspiration for when I finally get around to re-doing my main bathroom! Your layout is nearly identical to what I envision for mine; I want to switch the layout around. The only difference is I have another window which would be over where your sinks are so I'll need to do something about the mirrors other than putting them directly over.

Enjoy the new room! You really did a great job of pulling all the finishes together.

What a beautiful bathroom! I love the mix of marble tiles. I never would have thought to use a quartz counter with marble tiles, but they look great together. What color of Caesarstone did you use? Is your shower grate from California Faucets?

Your before vanity looks like the one in our hall bathroom: brownish tiles, top mount sinks and white cabinets. I can't wait until our kids are old enough for us to re-do that bath.

thanks, stinky, mydreamhome, deb52899 and sivyaleah!!

kaysd, the grate is from California Faucets. It was a little more than I wanted to spend on a drain, but I do like how it looks. The counters and tub surround are Pure White. We also used it in the niches.

kfhl, if you are worried about the maintenance of marble subway in the shower, another idea would be to put white subway in and do marble in the niches and on the shower floor. My husband's biggest complaint is having to squeegee the marble shower after we use it. I think he regrets not going with plain white subway tile in the shower, mostly for maintenance. But hopefully he'll get used to it after a while.

Just *gorgeous*. I love all the different shapes working together. There's a joyousness in the room that jumps out from the photos : ). The shower does look much bigger.

One practical note: if toddlers are going to be using this with wet feet, or even *anyone* with wet feet, I hope you'll compromise the gorgeousness a bit and put down ample floor coverage with bath mats. I broke my toe (with a 3 y.o. in my arms--talk about baby preservation instinct-- in the split second of the fall I made sure she was safe and just injured myself!) and on another occasion, slipped and fell and hurt my wrist on glossy white (ceramic) tile in the bathroom we had before we moved out west. They were 4x4 (probably wall tile, knowing the quality of the build in general...), so there was plenty of grout, but they were glossy and *dangerous*, as I learned.

PSA over -- we now return you to the delights of marble snow-blindness : )

chispa, best of luck on your projects! And feel free to shoot me an email if you are interested in some help.

flyleft, thanks for the words of caution about slippery floors. That sounds scary and painful (but way to go mama with your preservation instincts!!) I'm glad your 3 year old wasn't hurt. Our biggest concern with installing a polished floor was exactly this -- that one of our little ones would slip on it. I put down three bath mats this weekend so hopefully we won't have any slipping going on (fingers crossed).

monicakm, thanks! The stacked duckies were actually a baby shower gift a few years ago from my cousin. I will have to ask her where she found them. I looked at them and didn't see a brand on them.

and thanks for the nice words, treasuretheday, sas95, whiteriversooner and door1 (and anyone i might have missed)!

WOW, just beautiful. Hard to believe that is the same space! I'm clipping this to my favs for inspiration for my dream masterbath.

A few more questions if you don't mind. You mentioned the countertop is caesarstone is the tub deck and surround also Caesarstone?
Can you please tell me what sinks you used.? Love the shape.
Are your mirrors framed or recessed in the wall? Can't tell from the pics.
Also someone mentioned your kitchen...If it's anything like this I must see it. Can you provide a link to that?

Thank you!

thanks for the nice words.

Island, the tub surround is also Caesarstone. For the mirrors, we just had our carpenter build trim around the existing cabinets and had custom-sized mirrors put in when he was finished. It was easier than finding mirrors that matched the space. The sinks (17x17) were found at a bath specialty store in N. Hollywood called MTD.

Here's a couple pics of the kitchen - and link to the thread with the details.

thanks cscow and phylhl. cscow, so far I'm okay with how the marble is holding up. I'm really glad we chose not to put marble on the counter. The floor has scratched a bit from sand, but we have a large bath mat to prevent slipping and it covers the imperfections. My biggest gripe is that the marble subway tile and hex tiles in the shower are hard to clean. We squeegee after every shower, but I've yet to find a really good marble cleaner that works on soap scum!

thanks epressler, the hex marble is 8x9 (at the largest point). We went to the tile warehouse to pick out the exact tiles and I recall the tile distributor saying something about these being discontinued. It wasn't on the AKDO sample board we took home or in the showroom. We had originally planned to do the smaller hex tiles on the floor and we only discovered the larger hex tiles in the warehouse after we decided the smaller hex tiles were too busy for the space.

I just found this. Such a beautiful transformation!! I just finished my own bath remodel and love how you framed around your mirror(s). It such a simple, yet elegant, solution. Did you glue the mirrors to the wall and place the frame around them, or is the frame routed to accommodate the mirror on the backside? The mirror was one of the toughest things for me. I ended up going with a framed mirror, but I prefer large expanses of mirror as you have.

linelle, we built the frames and then I had my glass person come and measure the space and he had mirrors cut for that space -- we used two separate mirrors.

thanks, monicakm!

jerzeegirl, we sold the house about 6 months ago, so we only had that bathroom a little over a year. I have to say while I liked the marble when it went in, I had no idea what I was getting myself in to in terms of maintenance. The worst offender was SAND -- my kids would come traipsing in from the park and unload their pants full of sand on the floor, scratching the hex tiles up. We had to be meticulous about vacuuming before mopping the floors to make sure there was no sand or other particles on the floor that would scratch the floor. The last few months we lived there while our house was on the market, we stopped using the bath so that we wouldn't have to clean the tile. We tried everything from vodka to expensive marble cleaner and nothing seemed to get the grime off of it. We squeegeed the entire shower after we used it, but the marble tiles still looked dull after use.

So would I do marble again? I'd consider using it as a back splash or as an accent, but never on the floor of a main bathroom or as shower tile, or on a counter top. We are going with more durable materials (porcelain and penny tile) in our baths for our next remodel.

I've often wondered how all this marble is holding up in kitchens and bathrooms. It's a popular stone these days but I know I wouldn't be a candidate for it. Well at least you get to start over and know what not to get. Sure was pretty tho!

I just came across this older thread, and the bathroom is lovely. It was also interesting to read Pipdog's later follow-up about the high-maintenance floors.

Pipdog - if you are still checking in, can you please comment about the Caesarstone counters - like how they stood up to spills of toothpaste or soap residue, and general wear and tear? What color Caesarstone did you use for your counters? You mentioned your next remodel in your new home - what type of counters are you using there? TIA.
