Love your tiles....who makes them??


RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

The marble subway, bullnose and base moulding are all produced by a company call Heritage (they may be local to Omaha). The floor tile will have a greek key scroll and marble hex from Walker Zanger. I'll post extra pictures tonight and double-check on the Tile company name.

RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

Oh, can you please post more pictures. Your bathroom looks lovely.


RE: Bathroom Remodel Started redux

Thanks for all of the kind words. The remodel continues as the floor is in place and tile work should be complete tomorrow.

RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

Hi John, Where did you buy that subway tile? I have fallen in love with it, and I would love to have that in my bathroom.


RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

I can't wait for the finished pics. This bathroom will be stunning! Please post details.

RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

I'll post more pictures later this week. Here's the first pict of the completed bathroom:

RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

Well done! Very tasteful.

RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

your tile is wonderful. can you tell us all the exact names of tile sources and specific tiles? thanks!

RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

Yes, you can't leave us with just that one teaser.

I'd also like to know the name of the sink and faucets.

Looks beautiful. Please show us more.

RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

Oh my gosh! I LOVE your bathroom! Can you share every tiny detail? It looks like we may be in the same city...can I ask for the name of the place you bought the tiles? Did you DIY or do you know a good tile guy? If so, how much did the tiles and the job run? (I want to know so I don't faint if I need to get bids.)

I've known I'd probably use a subway tile and hex, and I've been tempted by marble but didn't think I could have my cake and eat it too!

Always ;-)

RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

Lovely job!

RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

Can anyone ID that sink faucet?

RE: Bathroom Remodel Started

My apologies for the delayed response. Here is all of the information requested:

Budge/Leslei - the materials used are as follows:
Sink and shower hardware = Waterworks
Toilet, Sink and Medicine Cabinet = Waterworks
Floor Tile = Walker Zanger
Wall tile, Base tile moulding, trim tile = ?? (I need to look this up).
Lighting Fixtures = Schoolhouse Electric
Soap Dish and Cup Holder = Restoration Hardware

Hunzi - if you are in Omaha, feel free to send me an email off-line ( - I'd be happy to share my experience. With respect to the marble tile, I can tell you that it was more expensive than most (particularly if you include labor) but well work the look.

If I don't get home from work too late tonight, I'll take more pictures and post.
