And now for the ceramic baths

Sorry it took so long for me to get to this (I had to finish up johnmari's bathroom!) :-) Anyway, here's the ceramic bath thread I promised:

This first one, I can't claim. I did the layout, but other than that, it was my son's first floor by himself, start to finish

One thing in this next bathroom-- with all the outside corners-- on either side of the half walls, by the steps, etc.-- even down the sides of the shower-- the ONLY place bullnose was used was on top of the tile on either side of the window. The rest of it is all Shcluter's stainless bullnose edging. I wasn't too enthusiastic about using a foreign material in the installation, especially when bullnose was available for that tile line, but it's what the customer wanted, and once it was done, I thought it looked pretty nice!

This is the half bath in the showroom I do most of my work for:

Everyone wants to know how to hide an access panel. This is how you do it!!

This next one is also of particular interest. It's a half bath I did in my sister's home about 5 years ago. She was using a 14x14 tile, and the only way to properly do it would have been to center one tile down the middle, and then cut the two side tiles. I decided to switch things around a little-- I used full tiles on either side, and did a row of "diamonds and triangles" down the middle as an accent stripe. Less work for me, and looks great!! EVERYONE WINS!!

Wow Bill. I've enjoyed looking over what you've posted. Great work! I saw your son's install. He's got a good teacher. Is he going into the tile business too?

I was actually trying to see if you did any bathrooms/showers in larger tiles (18 x 18) on the wall.

Gorgeous work! How long did it take you to do that star?

RE: And now for the ceramic baths

How do you keep those tiles in place that cover the entry to under the jet tub??
We have a similar bathroom to the one above with the removable tiled area (access to underneath the tub) but it is done with wood front that lifts up on hinges. I like your idea much better.
Details please : )

Hey Bill Vincent! Remember me from the kitchen forum a couple of years ago? (You better. lol!)

I'm going to be hanging out in the bathroom forum for a while as we hope to do a minor remodel of all three of our bathrooms early next year. I need all the advice and resources I can get. :-)

RE: And now for the ceramic baths

Yes I am bumping this because it has so many to get ideas from and this forum seems to have swallowed some of the others over time.....hoping to help
